Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Bright streaking object so moving from cloud to cloud very quickly
Size of Object(s)
About the same diameter of an average jet vapor trail. Altitude was probably about 5-8000 feet considering the clouds were not very high that day.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Right above me. Around 5-8k feet
Description of Area / Surroundings
Helicopter in the distance. About 20 miles from Denver international airport and Buckley air force base. I am very used to seeing lots of aircraft in the area. This was not something normal.
Full Description & Details
Was on my porch in a the Denver area on a cloudy overcast evening just before sunset. I was specifically out to look for anything odd in the sky because of an online story talking about several sightings of ufo's supposed to be happening on 10/13/10. As soon as I glanced up at the sky I saw a glowing streak of light dart from one cloud to another. It was too cloudy to be a shooting star in the sky and unlike anything I have ever seen in the sky before. The streak of light was very similar to a sparkler being waved around. After seeing the object I googled footage of several sightings also seen that day around the world. My experience was very very similar to the one in Malaysia. Funny how it showed up within a minute of going outside specifically to look for something like that.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No, I highly doubt it.
33 years old. I work strange hours so I am up quite a bit looking at the stars. Denver sky's are usually very clear and there are lots of stories of sighting here. Was born in Salida Colorado a known UFO hotspot so I have always kept an eye to the sky.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have never seen anything like that before but having a brother who says he has seen many strange things in the sky above Denver I like to keep an open mind about it. I google sighting more regularly now. You would be crazy if you thought we were alone in the universe.
