|9 objects that appeared to be bright hovering lights, then lit up, dimmed, moved to the east and began blinking.
A friend and I were watching TV when around 5:27 he went out to the balcony of my apartment for a smoke. I live up on a hill on the border of Golden and Lakewood that overlooks Denver and its suburbs to the north.
He knocked on the window for me to come and look at something. I am a MUFON Investigator so I watch the skies often. He pointed out a bright greenish light in the sky to the NNE. It was just sitting there perfectly still. I thought it looked very strange so I grabbed my binoculars. He then pointed out that there were actually 4 objects. All of them were still.
That looked even more interesting so I grabbed my video camera. Once I got out there with the camera they began moving. When I got my camera on them there were three left. The forth had moved off to the east. When I began video taping one object began to move off to the east, and one to the west. The one to the west then came back moving to the east. Then while filming the remaining light, which was perfectly still, just its right and above it another light lit up. Soon after, the bottom light lit up very brightly. When it got very bright, it appeared like an angled disk shape. It then began to move to the east like the rest and dim out. All of them did this when they flew easy and as they got dimmer they also began to blink. The remaining light did the same thing. It began to get extremely bright, and then it began moving east. Here again it would get dimmer and begin to blink. This can all be seen on the tape. As it moved to the east, I noticed yet another light appear the same place the last one had appeared. This one was dimmer and began move to the east blinking immediately. When the tress got in the way I stopped filming. However, we could see at least two of the light off in the distance over Denver. Then after a few minutes they began to fade too dim to see.
At this point I called the Director of Investigations to let him know what we saw. That call was made at about 5:55. While on the call at about 6:15, my friend could see another light appearing in the same spot they had appeared before. I got off the phone and went back with the camera, however right when I got the camera on it, it faded very dim. My friend saw another one of them over Denver that was lighting up very bright again. Again once I got the camera on it, it faded out. Because I thought they might be reacting to the camera I put it away. A couple minutes later another light appeared where the others had. This time, this one stayed still. It looked like it actually was two light side by side. As it sat there another light began to light just below it to the left. The light appearing looked very disk shaped through the binoculars. After 30 seconds or so as it finally seemed to be finished appearing or whatever it was doing and they both moved to the east. One headed east over Denver, the other seemed to keep a regular distance from us and moved in an arc to the east with us in the middle. Once it got due south of us, it just seemed to hover out there. We then noticed one out over Denver. This one seemed to be east of downtown and it had two lights, one at either end. It moved south and appeared very large for as far away it was. I would say about half the size of a dime at arms length. The light towards the front was brighter, and eventually the light at the back began to pulse. It eventually dimmed out. We could see one of the light heading east still, but after a couple minutes it began to get too dim also. At this point the light to the south was no longer visible either.
In total we saw nine of these objects and got seven on tape. You can look for yourself, but it does not appear that these objects had the characteristics of any known craft. The closest would be a helicopter, but that would not explain why some appeared to come out of no where, and why they seemed solid at first. It also would not explain the apparent disk shape. Two other things I would like to note, although they seem extraordinary is that they seemed to react to being video taped, and they seemed to intentionally blink to mimic airplanes.
