My mother and I were travelling east on I-70 highway from the 78th street exit, when at approximately 21:20 hours we observed a disk shaped object, very dark in color almost matching the night sky, slowly rise above the horizon directly in front of us. The object appeared to be about 1 mile from our location and 1,000ft. above the ground. It was the size of a small airplane. All of a sudden, there was a flash of light, and the object glowed a bluish white. At that point it rapidly ascended straight up until it disappeared. The entire event happened in about a minute.
