Duration:5 minutes
Red-lighted UFO with bluish flashing light flits over vacant field.

The following account is taken from a personal report made soon after the sighting: "As I was driving east on Prospect Road in Fort Collins, Colorado toward Interstate 25, I noticed a large bright red light or bunch of lights flying about 100 feet above the ground off to my left (north). The craft would periodically flash a bluish-white light as it sort of hovered around. The thing wasn't going fast enough to be an airplane, and the way it dropped altitude one time didn't seem like a helicopter, either. It more floated than flew. I did not hear any sound, but I was in a moving 11-passenger van. The object, which was very bright, was only a couple hundred yards away, and mostly red. After turning north onto I-25, I saw the same or similar object a few minutes later, moving south." I didn't stop to investigate the craft more closely, since I had passengers to deliver back to Wyoming, all of whom seemed to ignore the object. I did not mention it to them.
