UFO frenzy goes into overdrive as three red lights hover over Colorado town
Daily Mail ^ | 3/27/11 | Staff

Posted on 03/27/2011 11:46:23 AM PDT by Nachum

It's the latest internet sensation--amateur footage of three red lights in a triangular formation hovering in the night sky above the town of Lafayette in Colorado. The video, shot last Monday, shows that the sky was clear and witnesses said they could not see anything connecting the lights. Leroy Vandervegt, a 50-year-old who has lived in Lafayette for 16 years, shot the video Sunday evening after his 17-year-old son saw the glowing orbs move from south west to south east along the horizon. 'I had no idea what it is,' he said. 'It wasn't a satellite, it wasn't an airplane

Could Some Triangle UFOs be a Stealth Blimp?

By Chris Capps 12/6/09

Triangular craft are often spotted by witnesses who wonder later if they’ve seen the handy-work of extraterrestrials. But what if these craft were something else entirely? The Stealth Blimp, or rather the Lighter than Air High Altitude Platform was originally contracted out from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in 1983 according to NASA Contract NAS 6-3131 which calls for the creation of a system which can move soundlessly through the air in the form of a massive blimp with various applications.

The project officially declined due to lack of interest, but soon sightings of mysterious three sided triangular craft very similar to a permutation of the contract NASA originally created began appearing all over the western hemisphere and eventually the world. It all began when a pair of joggers suddenly stopped to observe a mysterious object shortly after the blimp was first patented in the early eighties. Years later, it would seem, the device was actually built as they stood and watched a black object hover silently over the tree line near Palmdale California.

Years later it would be seen in New Mexico by pilots aboard an America West airliner headed to Las Vegas. As the object was reported to ground control, the pilots related that they could only see it due to the flashes of lightning from a nearby thunderstorm which backlit it.

In 1997 the lights would be seen once again as the sky above Paulden Arizona suddenly lit up with mysterious black shapes hovering across the skies along with several other towns in the area including Tempe, Chino, Valley, Glendale, Phoenix, Tucson, and Kingman. In this case even the governor reported seeing an object that “blacked out the sky” nearby his home. The Official story coming from the Air Force was a simple exercise involving flares, but this is overwhelmingly unconvincing as it doesn’t explain the dark shapes spotted all over the state.

In 2000 the triangular craft would make another major appearance as they hovered over Lebanon Illinois being spotted by several policemen who recorded the sighting across county lines and through several different cities. Nearby Scott Air Force Base made no official explanation of the objects, and declared they were not conducting any maneuvers on that night.

And the phenomenon would move overseas when the object was spotted above Guernsey in the United Kingdom. The object was later declared the “Mile Wide UFO” by media. Witnesses to the high profile case included air traffic controllers and witnesses who were used to observing aerial phenomena.

So could this Stealth blimp still be making appearances? Just yesterday while a witness was gathering wood in Brownwood Texas, they spotted a massive triangular object moving across the sky through the clouds heading North. From the looks of it, the Stealth Blimp is still in service. Was it created using alien technology? Most estimates of our current technological abilities dictate that a massive vehicle of the proportions described by witnesses is simply impossible. Regardless of if it was terrestrial in origin or not, if such a craft exists, the technology required to build and maintain it would be several years in excess of what the public is currently aware of. If these craft exist, perhaps the science fiction world of the future is merely a series of disclosures away.

Was sitting in an outfit on a back road a number of years ago, late at night, with some friends, when a red light appeared in the sky off to the left.

From our angle and distance it appeared to be moving slowly in our direction.

We couldn’t figure it out.

Until it touched down on a hillside and started a wildfire.

Seems some of the local kids had gotten their hands on a parachute flare.

We moseyed on over and helped try to put the fire out. With about 90% of the other local residents.

It's pretty obvious that what we have here are 3 European swallows who have been trained to fly in formation, covered in red-burning magnesium dust, ignited, then photographed.

Happens all the time.

Not very sporting, but it does get you written up in The Mail.

'I had no idea what it is,' he said. 'It wasn't a satellite, it wasn't an airplane and it wasn't a helicopter.'
In other words, he DOES have SOME idea what it was, if he's so sure "It wasn't a satellite, it wasn't an airplane and it wasn't a helicopter".

Don't be coy, dude. You DO have an idea. Spit it out.

For all you that do not know Lafayette is just a few miles form the Republic of Boulder.

Longmont had many sightings in the 50s-60s. They are also close to Boulder and former Rocky Flats Nuke plant.

Denver International Airport officials would not talk about the sighting but, intriguingly, Allen Kenitzer, the Federal Aviation Administration's spokesman for the Rocky Mountain region, said his staff didn't see anything out of the ordinary.

Mr Kenitzer said: 'To the best of our knowledge, radar returns showed no abnormal unidentified activity within our airspace in references to the three triangular formation red lights as being reported.'

In other words, Denver International Airport officials didn't say anything and what the FAA said was NOT intriguing in the slightest, since they basically said it was just another day on the radar screens.

POS story from a POS "journalist".

I assume he noted the flight pattern, thereby proving the Earth to be banana-shaped?
