Silent and Fast-Moving Orange Orb Over Denver

On the evening of 5/11/13 my wife and I had our good friends over to our new house for dinner and to sit out by our fire pit afterward. It was near the end of the evening (somewhere between 10:30 PM Ė11:00 PM) when a helicopter flew over and put its spot light right on us which was weird but also had it on the neighborhood briefly. We live in a quiet neighborhood in south-east Denver and just moved from north-east Denver where police choppers Ė especially on the weekends were common so while this was strange we didnít really think much of it. What was weird and unexplainable is what happened nextÖ

About 2-3 minutes after the helicopter flew over, we all were still a little sensitive to things flying overhead and we all saw a strange orange light moving quickly towards us from the south west (it appeared to be moving as fast as a fighter jet) but made no sound at all. As I mentioned our neighborhood is quiet and neither of us could hear anything coming from this object.

When the object appeared directly overhead we could all see a light orange circular craft of some kind with a darker orange center that sort of pulsated but there were no blinking lights like you see on an airplane or helicopter.

We watched the object travel north east and at which point I brilliantly decided to get a video of it on my phone but I was just a tad too late.

By the time I looked up and my wife and our friends stopped making fun of me for thinking of this after it was well over our location, the object disappeared. It was probably 20 miles or more past our house by the time we lost sig! ht.

I noticed another report came in from Steamboat Springs, CO that same night that has a similar description of the object we saw.

My wife and I and our friends (also husband and wife) are all well-educated people but none of us have ever seen anything like this. Even with that said, we all kind of blew it off but I decided to check out if there was a way to report it since I have thought about it several times in the past couple of weeks since it occurred.

Iím sure thereís an explanation for what we saw but figured itís worth reporting anyway.
