Location: Lakewood, CO
Shape: Circle
Duration:5 minutes
circular craft, bright spokes of color, flickering, moved quickly with great changes in altitude, seemed to cause "flash lightning.

Witnessed unknown craft at about 8 p.m., while picnicing. Children saw craft first and calle dout "ALIENS!!" Adults came out from under pavilion to see craft. Craft appeared to be a perfect circle with tubes of brightly colored-richly colored light radiating from its center. Lights flickered very quickly. Colors were blue, red green and yellow. I saw only a flat dimension and could not make out a shape above the lighted circle. It floated quietly; seemed very close (i.e. tall building height) over Stone House Park in Lakewood; moved ESE at first and then gained speed and altitude; changed direction to SE and then S, and WSW, all the while gaining great altitude. Craft came very near to cloud, or entered cloud and seemed to cause bright flash lightning. I heard no thunder. The flash lightning seemed to start and stop in corrolation with the craft.
