Location: Grand Junction, CO
Shape: Disk
Duration:15 min
first object was huge second much smaller both chased by fighter jets.

I was hunting and just as the sun was going down I looked at the horizon and noticed two airliners reflection from the setting sun.The date was 9/16/04 at approxamently 7:15pm.As I was looking at the airliners I realized I was looking at another reflection that was higher than the airliners and seemed closer but I think it was as far if not farther than the airliners.This object was huge, looking through my binoculers it did not seem to have a definet solid appearance but was flat with a slight dome shape to it and moveing at about the same speed as the airliners.In cmpareison in size to the airliners the airliners would have made a small dot on the object it looked that big.At this time I was trying to understand what I was seeing when a jet fighter banked over Grand Junction.When I looked at the fighter I saw 2 more fighters higher up and none where in any kind of formation.The fighter that banked over GJ got on a straight course towards the huge object and hit his after burners flying west the other fighters did not follow.I watched this pursuit and the huge object just faded out,if I had to guess this happened closer to Green River UT.I kept watching the horizon after the huge object dissapeared and saw on the horizon a much smaller object holding in the sme spot.I thought this was a star but then another fighter flew over GJ heading directly for this object as the fighter grew closer this object dissapered like turning off a light.All this took place in 15 min.And ther was not a cloud in the sky and I never saw the third again.
