Strange object, stranger events that followed on seeing the object in the Mountains above Denver

My friend and I and her two children went up above Denver into the mountains where there is a buffalo herd that is kept. It is near a park area and rest area so people can hike, see the herd or just camp for the day. On the way towards Genese housing development. We stoped to have a picnick and watch the sunset. There was other people there as well. There was a hispanic man standing on one of the many boulders watching the sky. I looked west towards the setting sun and thought at first I was watching an airplane. But then I realized it was round and metalic and very bright. Still I thought it was just the sunlight reflecting on it. I pointed it out to my frined and her kids. At that moment it skipped across the sky at such a fast speed. It was in one spot than the next, to the point your head had to turn real quick to catch it. It was definately faster than any fighter jets and made no sound at all. We just stood there watching it skip back and forth across the sky. I started to get creeped out and said to my friend we need to go. I looked over to the Hispanic man he was rushing his family out. It was like everyone just instictually knew to leave. For some reason my friend, who was driving decided to take the scenic route or back roads back down to Denver. It was a wierd decision because the freeway was right there. As we were going down the mountain side it was still pretty light outside. The sun had not set yet. There were these light like a negative print from a picture but they were florecent green. Not bright, but almost like an olive florecent? they came at the car in waves. It looked like waves, and they made geometric shapes infront of the car. Like outlines. The kids were scared, she was scared. I wasn't susre what to think. At one point we got by this switch back dirt road and there was a man just standing there. He was in plain clothes. And he was just watching us. We drove by him. I couldn't get a good look at his eyes but, He was so very still. We got to the bottom of the road and it was night outside. We couldn't figure it because the cars time clock didn't seem to be messed with and we all seemed to be of sound mind. The car was acting up. We got to her place just in time to discover the brakes were completely gone. Which was extremely wierd because she just had new ones installed a few days before our trip out there. Not an hour later there was several helicopters flying over her home and they were gone. The kids still have dreams of that experiance. We kind of just laugh about it, but we don't know what really happened. Or what we saw.
