|large craft white streak in sky at18:30 about 20miles South of Laramie with rotating lights underneath
On Sunday September 30th, at about 6:30 PM, about 20 miles south of Laramie, Wyoming, while driving north on highway 287, my wife spotted what, at first, looked like a white cloud or contrail in the west high above the Snowy Range mountains. I was driving and listening to the radio. It was a cloudless sky, so the white streak stood out.
After watching about five minutes she alerted me that it was a craft. She saw revolving lights under the object. The lights also changed color to blue and then red, then back to white. I looked and saw it and pulled off the road to get a good look. The object was not moving. We had the mountain range to use as a marker.
As we continued to drive toward Laramie we could see the object did not move. It was about two inches wide at arms length and we estimate it to be 30-40 miles west of us. It was about a fist above the mountains. We continued to watch until we reached Laramie about twenty to twenty-five minutes after we first spotted it.
There was no mistaking it with anything we know.
We are both experienced sky-watchers and this was the real deal.
