Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Shape: Light
Duration: 15 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail
Heading South into the city saw 4 huge bright orangeish lights forming curved line. Had never seen them before. Was somewhere above central, downtown area. Sometimes some of the lights would disappear.

We were traveling south on I-25 just north of the exit to the Air Force Academy. We saw 4 huge, (I mean Enormous) round lights above the city that we had never seen before. Ruled out them being lights from the Power Plant or any building. They were orangish and formed a curved line. They seemed to have some sort of exhaust or smoke discharge below them. They seemed to hover over the central part of the city. Some of the lights seemed to disappear at times, but it was hard to tell because they would go behind objects. (meaning while we were driving, they would be out of sight for brief periods of time) They also seemed to be raising up and down. They then disappeared as fast as we notced them. The duration of all of this was about 15 minutes. Don't know what it was, but can't explain it either. Observers are young professionals.
