Colorado residents want some answers as to why three red lights were hovering in the sky March 20, 2011, in a triangle formation, according to multiple reports from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database and additional reports posted on YouTube with video.
MUFON received four reports between March 20 and 21.
Colorado is a current UFO ALERT 5 rating, with a low number of UFO sightings nationally. Colorado had 8 UFO reports in February 2011 - while California had 67 sightings, the highest reporting state in the nation.
You can read more details about other recently reported cases at the UFO Examiner home page. The most up-to-date UFO information can be heard at web radio show UFO Traffic Report every Wednesday, 9 - 10:30 p.m. EST, which includes a UFO Witness Testimony Program segment, and an update of the UFO ALERT national rating system. Past shows are available at the Archive page.
The following are the unedited and as yet uninvestigated reports filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Colorado MUFON State Director Doug Wilson investigates and reports back on these cases, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.
Case # 28335 describes what first appeared to be three red dots in the sky in a triangle formation on March 20 moving slowly to the east, described by a witness in Broomfield - located in the southeastern corner of Boulder County.
"Then two of them veered off together, almost came to touch each other, then veered away and looked as if they were heading back toward the other red dot," the witness stated. "They were very far away and appeared to flicker in the night sky. I'm not sure if they're still outside within view as I wanted to come in and report it! Cars were stopped on our street (Miramonte Blvd. in Broomfield) watching what was a pretty eerie movement of three red lights in the sky."
