|Slow moving craft made no sound, had incredibly bright lights that didn't illuminate the trees or ground.
I was leaving our tent situated next to the Yampa river, 15 miles south of Steamboat Springs, at 4:45 in the morning to go hunt elk. Our camp was in a tight river valley, between two mountains. The air temperature was 10 degrees Fahrenheit, with clear skies and no wind. (calm) The valley is approximately 700 yards wide. I saw a craft come down off of Morrison Mountain, following the contour of the ground about 250 ft from the surface. It went by us, 100 ft to the north, and continued along the river valley, and went around Blacktail Mountain out of our line of sight. The craft was traveling 25 mph and made no noise at all. The craft had intense white lights and flashing red lights. The lights however did not illuminate the ground or trees which was odd because it was very close to the ground. The craft was 20 feet long.
