Location: Highlands Ranch, CO
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 minutes
Blue/red/green triangular object above fireworks display.

My family were invited by friends of our to watch the fireworks in Highland Ranch. As the fireworks began, we saw a triangular shaped object with blue and red lights to the left of the fireworks that appeared to be floating and flitting back and forth, like a kite in the wind. I showed my friends and family and others around us were also commenting on it calling it a "UFO". I assumed it was a kite with LED lights but then it moved towards the right and directly behind the fireworks but much higher than a kite would go. The lights became more red and green when it moved to this new position. It remained perfectly stationary for about 10-15 minutes and then it it slowly descended beyond the treeline and disappeared - apparently flying North towards Wyoming.

I am a 50 yr old business executive and my friend is the VP of a large company in Denver. Obviously there were thousands of others who saw the same thing. I wouldn't normally think along the lines of UFOs and my friend still thinks it was a helicopter or something explainable. However, there was no helicopter sound or typical movement and no white lights in the front and rear as would typically be seen on a helicopter. The triangle formation and strange left to right movements in the beginning also were odd.
