Location: Daniel's Park, CO
|UFO seen over Daniel’s Park Southwest of Denver Colorado
Event Date: 9/22/2001 Event Time: After 9:00 PM before 10:30 PM Event Duration: 30 – 60 sec.
Number of Witnesses: 5 or more Shape of Craft: Sphere Number of craft seen: one Summary Description: Strobing plasma sphere Full Description: I was at Daniel’s Park that evening with some friends. It was just dark; I could easily see all major stars, (ie Vega, Arcturus, etc.). We were facing south, with Denver to the northeast. I had my telescope setup (8” reflector) and I was observing Mars at the time, with my high power eyepiece. Then our organizer said, “What is that?” As we followed his hand, we saw to the left and down range a strobing sphere, about the size of a mini-van. I don’t dare estimate its altitude or distance from us. There were no reference points to compare to.
Its heading was northwest and speed was faster then a small plane and slower then a jet. It didn’t change heading or speed for the entire time that we observed it. As it reached its closest point to us, I could observe the following: It was a sphere, it strobed at 6 cycles per sec. (approximately), It made no sound, It was red-orange in color I was able to exchange eyepieces to my low power one and target three places before I saw it in my telescope. It looked no different than when it was closer. I was not able to see any more detail. Immediately after our sighting, Stan Romanek drove up in his van.
((NUFORC Note: Our gratitude to the witness, and to Stan Romanek for arranging to have this report submitted. Mr. Romanek experienced two dramatic sightings in Colorado on September 22 and 30, 2001, and his reports appear in this database for those dates. NUFORC has viewed video of the September 30 event, and it is impressive, and unexplained, we feel, by any type of conventional aircraft that we are aware of. PD))
