|Bright lights seen pulsating over east Colorado.
At around 7:30 pm a friend called letting us know that there were weird lights in the sky. 3 friends and I went out to look at the lights, when we went out we saw about 4 bright lights towards the north east about 15 degrees above the horizon. The lights were moving back and forth between each other and pulsating red, yellow, blue and, green. They would fly close to each other and then at high speeds, fly away. Every few minutes one or two of the lights would get extremely bright emit other lights. After about 15 minutes of watching the lights i called the sheriffs office of Boulder County and reported the sighting. A few minutes later one of the local deputies called me back and said there had been multiple reports in the area of the same lights. The deputy then told me that he was driving out to east Longmont to check out the lights for himself. A few minutes after hanging up with the sheriff my friend called back and said that he had talked to another dep! uty who said he saw the lights and called the FAA(Federal Aviation Association)who said they had gotten three reports from from sheriffs offices around Colorado who said they had also gotten multiple reports. The FAA then said they scanned the area with radar and got 3 blips for a few seconds then the blips flew below the radar. They also said that they hadn't determined if they were going to scramble jets yet. The entire encounter lasted about 2 hours.
