UFO Sighting

I was traveling east on Highway 40 coming into downtown Hayden, Colorado to pick up a pizza at Wolf Mountain, traveling at 20 - 30 miles per hour. The sky was dark blue with some sparse cirrus type clouds.

Looking into the sky in front of me I had observed what appeared to be an unmistakable disc, a very bright shinny metallic silver, a silver unlike any I had seen before.

I had thought to myself, maybe it is a very shinny old plane moving forward, however it was moving slightly to my right as if semi-hovering. I could not take my eye’s off of it as it, again ever so slowly shifted to the right . I had also noticed a jet much farther distant and very high with it’s vapor trails.

I thought to myself this is definitely a disc and was watching to see if it would make any sharp movement’s, when a tree branch and than a number of buildings obstructed my view for about 5 to 10 seconds.

I observed the craft itself for about 10 to 15 seconds.

When that area of the sky came back into view there was a wide funnel/chimney cirrus type cloud extending vertical and angular to the left, in it’s place. The disc was gone.

I stopped at the pizza shop, got out the car and went out across the street to get a wider view. If it was a plane it would still be in view somewhere, I thought. Nothing in sight except for this broad funnel/chimney type cirrus cloud.

I looked at my pocket watch and it was 12:30 pm Mountain Standard Time.

The size of the disc relative to the sun was very near one quarter to one fifth of the Sun. Relative to a star it was perhaps 20 times larger or more.

I AM going to sketch a drawing of this scene.
