Location: Westminster, CO
Characteristics: The object changed color
|Observed three star like objects move at supersonic speeds, one made a u-turn and (N - S) then S - NEN!
Standing on my back porch I noticed (what I can only describe as) several supersonic waves.
I cleaned my glasses and just relaxed my eyes, thinking I was just seeing something natural. Then I noticed a star blinking white, red, orange, blue, and then a bright white blast, if you will. Again, I figured it must be natural, due to distance and the atmosphere. Then the bright white object moved at a speed that was simply unnatural.
I was standing due west, the Flatiron Mountain range is directly in front of me. The object was positioned at 2 o'clock and raced south to my 10 o'clock position and the made was looked like a u-turn and moved a little slower heading at my 1 o'clock position, towards Boulder.
The night sky was clear and dark from where I was observing. I often see commercial aircraft approaching Denver International (60 miles approx) and aircraft flying over Denver heading WSW at over 25,000 - 30,000', the three objects were in the 100,000 plus! area! My Wife came outside after hearing me scream her name, and she watched the third object race from our 11 o'clock and move due north.
The objects moved from point a to b in seconds (5 - 9), I did not have time to run upstairs and get the video camera.
This sighting is a true definition of a UFO, I have no idea what we observed, if they are man made then our military has something that would be revolutionary.
Note: My Wife has always laughed at the topic of UFO's, until last night. Not saying she is a believer, just she was truly amazed at what we observed.
