Some witnesses thought it was "CHRIST'S SECOND COMING" as the light was so profound

Peter, This report comes out of Howard, Colorado. On the 23rd of Dec. 1999 at about 10:15 pm an extraordinary light show of an unknown origin appeared over the Arkansas Valley near the small town of Howard, Colorado. I was alerted to this past sighting by a local resident of Salida, Colorado. This individual told me of the sighting through close friends of her's that were driving along Hwy. 50, along with many other witnesses who saw this bright light in the night sky... Some witnesses thought it was "CHRIST'S SECOND COMING" as the light was so profound and bright in colors of red and white, very intense and very prominent. This story is ongoing and in Salida, Colorado, the TRAVEL CHANNEL television show will be in town interviewing witnesses of resent and past UFO sightings this coming week The local paper the MOUNTAIN MAIL from Salida, Colorado, did a small piece on this sighting, and interviewed a local resident there on the upcoming TRAVEL CHANNEL Show. From my understanding this is a first on this sighting and along with the photo, which I will send later. Some witnesses need to be interviewed, we will post more findings later. R. G.
