Location: Jefferson, CO
Shape: Sphere
Duration:2-3 hrs
saw a bright red sphere moving slowly from west to east on the north of our campsite.

The sphere was blinking on and off in an odd fashion, as if it was phasing in and out of this dimension , very jerky motions, then slow steady progress to the east then more jerky motions etc. After about five minutes the object went behind a mtn. to the east and circled around to the south of our campsite and hovered silently about fifty feet off of the ground and seventy five yards away. It was about three hundred feet in diameter and bright redish orange. We felt a strange calmness and after what seamed like only a few minutes it went away at a very high rate of speed, it coveredat least thirty five miles in a split second and was bouncing eratically over the mountain range to the south west of our campsite. since then i have had the feeling that it was not just a few minutes hovering but a few hours, but at the time of the incident we didn't realize how much time had elapsed. There were four of us and we all had seen the same thing.
