Rocky Mountain High Strangeness...


The time is 7:30pm. The location, Denver, Colorado. An individual standing on his front steps witnessed a very weird flying object of unknown origin. It first appeared as a triangular shaped blob gliding silently and, although it had no lights, it moved more quickly than a flight of birds (the witness' first impression which was quickly dismissed). When it paused and changed direction over the observer's house it could be seen that the craft didn't look entirely solid. "The edges were fuzzy and black and the inner part was a lighter greyish green." It faded in and out of visual range and began morphing into other shapes: an hourglass, a chevron, then a long snake or arm like appendage protruded from the object just before it took off at great speed. (reported on line to MUFON on 10/18/2011).

That same evening (quite possibly a short time before the next report) in Arapahoe county (east of Denver), Colorado, a witness was socializing with their cousin in law on the front porch when the cousin mentioned a shooting star (that evening was the second night that the Leonid meteors were peaking). The witness looked up but missed seeing it. Seconds later the neighbors dog made uncommonly strange whining noises, which caused the witness to look upward above the house and see an unlit black triangle. For some reason, perhaps they had bad night vision, the cousin couldn't see it when asked (perhaps he didn't want to see it). The object then moved towards the southeast and shortly thereafter turned so that the observer noticed three orange lights on each of its sides. The bottom of the craft had no lights and "..there was a strange haze around the ship, like a magnetic field.." It was silent throughout the sighting, even when it faded out towards the horizon at great speed. (reported on line to MUFON on 10/19/2011).

At 10:15pm in Jefferson county (west of Denver), Colorado. the witness, two of his band mates, and his cousin were outside talking after a rehearsal when they saw a remarkable meteor streak across the sky from northeast to southwest over their heads. It lasted 3-4 seconds and it was so close that flames and debris could be seen coming off of it. They were still marveling about it a minute later when they saw a silent triangular craft with lights moving swiftly above them along the same path as the meteor was traveling. They were able to observe it for 15-20 seconds before it was lost over the horizon. (reported on line to MUFON on 10/20).

A few hours later, at 1:54am on the 19th in downtown Denver, a deputy sheriff was preparing to start a shift at work after parking and exiting their car. Facing east, a formation of five dim lights was seen approaching at fast speed. They passed overhead silently and proceeded towards the mountains in the west where they quickly went out of sight. The first impression of the observer during the 5 second sighting was that the lights belonged to a single object but then realized that they were not joined together. Their speed was compared to a "hurried F-16" and the altitude was estimated at between 1,500 and 4,000 feet. (reported to NUFORC on 10/19/2011, a few hours after the sighting).

All of the sightings above were also before and within range of a peak of my UFO "Day Cycle A" which is estimated to have occurred on or close to the time of 9:41am on 10/19/2011.

    Thanks neighbor for the positive feedback! I looked at your profile and will be looking into your hubs soon. If you love the idea of UFOs visiting us you may want to see one sometime. Twelve percent of the U.S. population think that they have seen a UFO. I'm one of them; seeing two back in the mid to late '60s and also in 1997. We both live in a pretty good area to see UFOs (Oregon and Washington are usually in the top ten U.S. states for UFO sightings), but right now the states ahead of us are Arizona, New Mexico, California, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and Montana. If you'd like to see one, I might recommend a trip to the Denver area (especially east or west of the city) when you could be out hunting for them on Friday night March 2nd. At least that's where I would be then if I had the money to take the trip. Glad you enjoyed my hub and hope you check out some of my other ones as well!

    Although the nearest stars may seem far to us with our limited technology, they may not present much of a hurdle for civilizations that have been around a few thousand more years beyond where we are now. And then there is the possibility that we may have succeeded in causing our own extinction in say 3,000 years and the UFOs represent alien colonizers who are visititing us now via time travel from that distant future (many abductees have been warned by aliens that our future looks bleak). Thanks for your thoughts crazyhorsesghost!

    I believe very much in UFO's. I'm sure I have seen one on several occasins. I think we would have to be crazy to believe that we are alone and the only planet with life on it. I think there are many many planets near us with intelligent life on them.

    Glad you find my hub of interest Nell Rose. I am convinced that these are examples of something that wasn't built in our black op back yard, but thanks for your input!

    Hi, fascinating stuff, I do believe though that it was probably a new aircraft such as the stealth, they are always making secret updates to planes these days, mind you I would love to find out!
