Location: Boulder, CO
Shape: Other
This object looked like a bright star, zig-zagging, abruptly stopping & then zig-zagging @ a high rate of speed above Boulder, Colorado. This event took place while camping above Boulder, CO. on Flagstaff Mountain. At this position we had a very clear view of the sky & the town below. The object went from one end of the sky to the other & was witnessed by myself as well as 4 other friends. This took place approximately in July of 1969. We were all just kids & no one would believe us. Since then I've been in the military & have traveled abroad & have witnessed another sighting in Terrell TX. The object was copper in color , it came out of the woods as I was driving down the road late @ night & I lost sight of it as it shot straight up. This happened in 1978 on or around the month of May right off highway 429. This was an unpopulated area @ the time.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. Witness records 1970, but states that the incident occurred in 1969. We have amended the date here. PD))
