3 orange lights seen west of pueblo blvd and arkansas river

About 8:27pm tonight, 1/21/09, me and my friend were at the Pueblo City Park behind the baseball field and skate park, parked in a car overlooking the river as it goes under Pueblo Blvd. On Google Maps, we were parked at coordinates 38.266590, -104.657360. It was somewhat windy, clear skies and able to see the stars. Looking in the direction of Google Map coordinates 38.273312, -104.667145, on the other side of Pueblo Blvd and on the other side of the river from where we were, we saw an orange light maybe 6-7 stories high. It was an orange sperical light that flashed on and off once. Then a few seconds later it turned on again, then seperated into three seperate orange spheres, extending away from us and to our left looking out toward PMI. The lights then stayed on for about 1 second, fully extended and remaining absolutely still and perfectly aligned to each other despite the wind. Then about 45 seconds later the three seperate orange sphere lights turned on, in the same direction and area as before, but one was closer to the ground and the other two were splayed out away from the other about 8 stories high, but each flashed on simultaneously and off simultaneously, all in a duration of 1 second. Then a few minutes later regular aircraft with required FAA lights flew over and kept flying over. The UFOs were not seen again afterward, and we only saw them at a time when it seemed no air traffic was in the immediate area.

We had parked there because we had seen UFOs there before and figured we might see on tonight. We noticed what seemed to be a bright, large planet out to the west. That planet had been in the exact same spot the night before, but tonight it began to slightly move around in every different direction, not staying stationary, and then it moved farther and faster from where it should have been in the sky. That's what got us to look in that general direction, and then we saw the first flash of the single orange sphere way to the right and close to the ground on the other side of the river. After the orange speheres, we looked back at what should have been a planet and it remained stationary and eventually sat below the horizon with the rest of the stars about 15 minutes after the orange spheres had stopped activity.

My friend who was driving and wants to remain anonymous called his friend who was in pueblo west on his cell phone after the second appearance of the lights and during the third appearance said that his cell phone recepetion cut out slightly during the call, especially during the third appearance of the lights, and after the lights stopped appearing the reception was back to normal. He said the person in pueblo west he was talking to also saw the lights simultaneously.
