Duration:2 minutes
"String of Pearls" White, cloud colored small ovals that stood still, linked up, and then 1 zoomed into space.

I did not want to appear as a cook, so I did not report it until I just saw the figures tonight on Unexplained Phenonmeno, so I resorted to the internet and found your site. What I saw was what was referred to on the television show as "A String Of Pearls. Against the night sky, they where oval and appeared against the sky as small oval clouds, only these where obviously not clouds. They were much too small and they moved like nothing I have ever seen. From Ft. Collins, Co., they seemed to appear over Denver, Co., south of Ft. Collins and just east of Denver and the Government's satellite/missle tracking center (I forget it's name)in a granite mountain in the Rockies that is designed to withstand a nuclear bomb. In a 2-3 min. period, they came out of the clouds, sometimes one would seem to link up to another, but they moved around, sometimes one would stop and then move again. They moved pretty quick considering their height. 3-5 of them moved around for a few min. (the no. depended upon the cloud cover, some dashing in and out) before all but one disappeared back above the cloud cover. Only one was left, but after three min., all of a sudden, it moved from a stand still and then went into (terms learned from T.V.)warp drive and dashed off into space, disappearing into space that was not covered by clouds.
