Location: Longmont, CO
Shape: Oval
Duration:2min
a large orange orb that divided into 6 and lasted low on the horizon for 1-2 minutes

I saw a large. yellow-orange circle-too large for a star in the south west. I watched for a while then went outside. I called my husband who felt it was too slow for fire works. It slowly turned into 2 then 4 then five then six large flattened ovals but did not move. Then after a minute it started moving slowly south then decended slightly and disappeared instantly.

There were fireworks in the area but none at the time of the sighting. aerials are not allowed in or area.There was no sound accompanying the orbs.

We are medical professionals and have good vision and have never seen a strange object we cold not identify. From our prospective this was 50 times larger than a local airplane.
