Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 2 min.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Black triangle spotted in Pikes Peak region and slowly fades from sight.

There were no clouds in the sky on this particular evening.I happened to look up as we left a family birthday gathering and spotted the triangle heading s/sw along the Pikes Peak front range.It appeared to be at an elevation of about 1000-1500 ft above the ground.The object was approximately the size of a football field (250-300 ft.)in length and about 100 feet or so wide.The object was moving very slowly. As I watched the object slowly turned and headed in a westerly direction (towards Pike Peak)As the object changed directions it seemed to simply fade from existence and disappeared.One of the most striking characteristics of this object was its ability to blend in with the night sky.It seemed as if you could look through the object and see the stars and sky but you could still see the outline and fact that this was a solid object.Very impressive.
