Location: Cheyenne, WY
|Taking a smoke break in front of my house, was watching a satellite traveling east to west, looked in south/south east direction and immediately noticed two very large red unflashing/unblinking red lights, within a second I noticed a large vertical structure coming from the between the two lights that was dimly lit with a creamy white color. Structure coming from the top looked tall and thin. My first thought was a Chinese lantern, but object was very low and very large, traveling fast. No wind(accuweather said that the wind was 7mph). Object was traveling North/Northeast. The large red lights on the bottom seemed to move in relation to the top object. It did not appear that the red lights were connected to the top structure. Watched object for about 2 minutes before it was too far away to see. This object literally flew over the eastern part of the city of Cheyenne, low enough to be a hazard to aircraft. Was large and bright enough that a lot of people shou! ld have seen it. The two red lights on the structure were like looking at tail lights on a car. Very large, not the near pinpoint FAA lights that you would see on an aircraft. No sound coming from craft at all. It appeared that the object was less than a mile from me, but distance is a tough thing to judge.
This happened less than an hour ago, still fresh in memory.
