Location: Centennial, CO
Duration: 1.5 hours
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
I was outside on my back patio when I looked toward the eastern sky and saw a massively bright light rising in altitude. I asked my brother to look and as he did it rapidly went from an equal level with my neighbors tree line straight up into the sky. It stayed at this level for more than an hour and a half during which time it would just hover around the night sky moving to various different locations. Every time before it would move the light, which appeared in many different shapes for lack of a better word, would grow amazingly bright and then begin to dim until it completely disappeared and then within five to ten minutes it would begin to brighten up in a completely new location. The light itself was incredibly bright and was steady, it didn't twinkle light a star and was very strong and brilliant white. The patterns and the way that this light moved were totally unlike anything I've ever seen before and whatever it was it would just hover about at ! the same elevation slowly moving and bouncing across the sky. At the very beginning of this the light would grow out and create aura like rays spreading out in different directions and then almost instantaneously would just collapse into itself and then brighten back up which is what originally caught my attention.
