Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
I was driving to catch a flight at Denver International and had at least a three hour drive. I was driving down County Road 14 to State 131 in Routt Co., Colorado, when I noticed a light in the sky. We have a number of trains in the area and the best description I can give is that it was a slow moving train driving over the top of the Flattops ( a high plateau mountain range).

There are no train tracks on the top of the Flattops. It was about 4 am with no other vehicles on the highway. There is no train that crosses the Flattops. I was so intranced, that, even having to catch a flight in Denver, I stopped to watch. I have driven the road many times since and never had the same visual experience.

Years later I told a friend who described a light darting from the hills while she was walking in Vail. We only communicate rarely, maybe once a year, but I was stunned that both of us would have experienced an unusual light.

It was not until tongiht when I say the UFO special with Peter Jennings that I decided to do anything about my siting. At first I thought I was following a star, but when I stopped it was more than evident that there was a moving object.

If this will help, please use it. The dates are very fuzzy and I am only guessing, but if this adds to the data base all to the good. I know the time of day, but the year is in question. I communited from Oak Creek to Denver from 1993 until 2000 traveling the same highway. During that time I lived in NYS.
