Weird Wednesday ~ UFO's over Colorado

Recent UFO's in the Colorado News .......

Close Call at 8,000ft. over Denver

An unidentified flying object reported in the Denver area last week did not appear on radar, but nearly collided with a private jet at 8,000 feet above Cherry Creek.
In an audio recording from the jet cockpit, a pilot can be heard telling air traffic officials, "[I] don't know if it was a remote controlled aircraft or what, but something just went by the other way. About 20-30 seconds ago... And it was like a large remote controlled aircraft.
The corporate jet, a Cessna Citation 525 CJ1, was flying at 8,000 feet above sea level over Cherry Creek when the mystery object came close enough to make any pilot nervous.
Former NTSB Investigator and 9NEWS Aviation Analyst Greg Feith listened to the air traffic recordings and believes the object could be one of three things:
- A military or law enforcement drone. 
- A remote controlled aircraft. 
- A large bird.
"Was this an unmanned vehicle that was part of some sort of law enforcement operation? Was this somebody that had flown a large model aircraft inadvertently into the airspace? Or was it just [a bird that] caught the pilot's eye so he believed it was an aircraft but could have been a very large wing span bird," Feith said.

Mystery Lights over Lafayette
In March 2011 three red lights in a triangle were spotted hovering in the sky by several Lafayette residents Monday around 8:30 p.m. The sky was clear, but witnesses could not see anything connecting the lights.
The lights made no noise and seemed to hover in the sky while moving slowly from southwest to southeast. They didn't blink. The lights remained in a triangular shape, but the type of triangle changed from equilateral to isosceles to scalene.
Then, the triangle began moving toward the northeast sky when one light extinguished, or zoomed away. The remaining two lights "just turned off and were gone Denver International Airport officials declined to comment on the sighting. But Allen Kenitzer, the Federal Aviation Administration's spokesman for the Rocky Mountain region, said his staff didn't see anything out of the ordinary Monday night.

What's your UFO story?

One November afternoon in the early 1990's, I was taking a walk in my neighborhood and I happened to look up and high in the distance were two round silver horizontal "columns" moving at high speed parallel to each other. There was no sound. The objects had no markings, wings, protrusions or any kind of exhaust. The day was perfectly clear. I ran for a bit to try and keep my view of them but they zipped away.
Fast forward to last year and I'm watching UFO Files on TV. On one segment, they recreate an incident where a commercial pilot encounters (you guessed it), a cylindrical silver craft with no markings flying at high speed (although it wasn't over Alabama or the time that I saw it).

Weird, indeed. Unfortunately, I have never seen anything in the sky that I could not identify.
