Location: Ft. Collins/Loveland, CO
|The object was of technology that is general knowledge.
I woke up early and made coffee. Walked out onto the porch. Facing eastward I can see the lights of Ft. Collins to my left and the lights of Loveland to the right (I was at my cabin above Masonville, CO at the time). From the south and to the east of me something in the sky was moving towards the north. My best guess the object may have been 3000'-3500' from the ground and mabye 5000' feet distance from me. I was in awe. I didn't hear any noise from the object. It was black and as it moved in front of me I could tell it was triangular. It was non-reflective or otherwise I would have seen lights from Loveland reflecting off it's belly. It was much blacker than the night sky. Stars would disappear as the object moved under them. I can only guess at the size, there were no lights but since it was blacker than the sky I could tell it was triangular. I would guess that from the rear tips of the craft that it may have been 125' across the back end. From the nose to the rear tips mabye 100'. I'm not sure. It continued trekking north towards Cheyenne at the same pace as when I first saw it. I wuld guess the speed at about 65-70 mph. I watched it till the mountain north of me blocked my view. This is the first time I've mentioned this sighting.
I was a scout in the Marines from 70-76. I'm pretty levelheaded, never did drugs and don't drink alcohol.
