Wow. Just saw a real life UFO. Southern Colorado. It happened around 8:25 P.M. On the way home and I saw a bright orange light off to the east. It looked like the top third of a really orange moon rising very fast from behind a cloud except there are no clouds tonight and there is no moon. It pulsed slowly on and then off. I pulled over and got out. No sound. Looked to be, and this is my best guess, about 10 to 15 thousand feet up and elongated. Seemed to be between me and the Sangre De Cristo mountains which are 25 miles east. Looked to be 1/4 to half a mile long. winked out and then 3 bright orange lights appeared suddenly spaced a couple of miles apart and a little to the south of the first one and moving slowly south. They went out and then one large orange light with a flashing red light appeared way to the southeast. It pulsed on and off six times at a steady pace over a 15 second period hanging motionless and then went out and reappeared several miles miles farther south. It pulsed off and on one more time and then shot sideways at incredible speed and stopped somewhere near the New Mexico line which is about 50 miles south. My 13 year old son saw it too. It is a crystal clear night without a cloud in the sky and no trees to block the view. I know you can't take my word for it but maybe some other Freepers in Southern Colorado saw it too. Dang it was the strangest thing I have ever seen and I am 100 percent certain it was no plane or helicopter. Whatever it was it must have one heck of an inertial dampening system.
Pics or it didn’t happen.
Cool. With any luck it will be the adult supervision that “The Others” have sent to take us out of our misery.
In the summer of 1965, my cousin and I were in the Tucson desert and saw one, it freaked us out.......at the same time exhilarating.
No, no camera. Like I said, hoping someone else saw it and hopefully they got it on film.
Oh cool!!! I’m in CO too, but the Denver area. How neat for you and your son!
My dad and brothers and a neighbour saw one in Montgomery, Alabama in 1968 when I was just a baby. :( I would love to see something like that...just don’t want to go off with them. :)
Thanks for telling us. :)
Flares. Military. I’ve seen them, several times. First time is a mind blower/conspiracy rush though.
I’ll bet it was exciting. Did you have any binoculars with you or a camera? Hope so. If there any newspaper reports, you might post them in this thread.
Exhilarating is definitely the word. I’m still shaking.
Welcome to the Club. :)
Here’s something from You Tube that talks about the history of UFO’s in Southern, Colorado. It’s from Jan. 29, 2013. I’ve been to Hooper, CO—looking for the hot springs:
UFO Sightings in Colorado
Keep your eyes peeled for other reports coming in and let us know. :)
No. These were not flares. I am certain of that. They were rock steady in the sky when they were not moving. I guess I’ll have to watch the news tomorrow and see if there is a report.
I’ve always heard that this area is a hot spot for sightings. After I posted this I saw another thread about orange UFO’s recently in South Africa.
Combination of parachute flares and aircraft.
Wife and I saw something west of Phoenix one night. We stopped for gas at a little town called Pontatoc and several men became agitated when I told them I had seen something. They did not want to discuss it. Whatever they were, they seemed to move at the speed of light.
It would be interesting to see if on You Tube or other site if anyone has posted any video of those in SA and if they look like what you saw. This is really neat. I'm thrilled for you. Will have to see if any videos get posted to You Tube in the coming days.
