Location: Trinidad, CO
|I was on patrol in the county between Hoehne and Trinidad. I took a break on CR 83.1 and looked up at the stars. I observed a white light at what appeared to be a very high altitude, moving from West to East at an extremely high rate.
I could observe 4 aircraft moving within my field of view. Using the other aircraft as a reference, this object was approximately 90,000 to 100,000 foot altitude and traveling several thousand miles per hour. The object passed over head and then headed South by Southeast.
I thought that it could be the space shuttle, but the shuttle is still on the ground. It did not behave like a metorite the light remained steady the entire time.
