Location: Westminster, CO
Shape: Circle
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: The object changed color
In March of 1994, I was riding in a car heading south on Wadsworth Blvd toward 92nd in Westminster. I looked west at the sunset and above the mountains was a bright light like a star. It was a little too bright, so I stared at the object for a few. The bright round star started moving south very slowly. I thought it was the motion of the car at first because we were moving south but then it started accelerating very quickly while at the same time changing into different colors. It flash through at least all visible colors ROYGBIV and then shot off, in a flash, it was gone. It was like a reverse shooting star; leaving our atmosphere instead of entering it. The object was far away somewhere above the Rocky Mountains.

I can confirm the object sat still for approximately 20 seconds. By the time the object started moving, and accelerated, changed many colors, and shot off and disappeared it took less the 10 seconds. So I watched a total of 30 seconds. It all happened just north of the railroad tracks on Wadsworth Blvd and 92nd. I remember going over the tracks right after thinking “what was that?”
