Advanced light patterns turning in sharp angles and moving at high speeds in a fluid manner that no known human aircraft could handle.

A couple friends and I (3 people total) decided to climb up Green Mountain to view all of Denver’s fireworks for the 4th. We could see all of Denver from about Alameda North.

At about 9:40 PM (21:40) we saw 6-8 really bright lights traveling in an oval pattern in the sky. Using our geographical reference, they looked to be above Arvada or Westminster. They were moving quicker and more fluid like than any other aircraft I had observed.

The circling oval pattern abruptly stopped after about 10 - 20 seconds. Now only 4 lights remained and they quickly shuffled around each other in their own unique oval shaped patterns.

After about 5 seconds of this the lights reduced down to three in which they formed a triangle in the sky. The lights then began to weave in and out of each other, yet always returning back to the original triangle shape. The sharp degree turns that these crafts would turn at was remarkable; they could flip a direct 180 degree turn at a really high velocity as if momentum was not a factor.

This triangular light pattern lasted for about 20 seconds until 2 suddenly disappeared as if flying north at a really fast speed.

The last light remained for a while longer, the departure of this light was observed as if it were shrinking in size and dimming in luminescence to blend with the city street lights until we could see it no longer.

We potentially considered this last beam of light to have landed as it sunk to blend in with the city lights.

All three individuals can vet for what they saw on the mountain that day, and we all agree that these air crafts were far more advanced than anything we have seen in the skies before.

It was a very inspiring and beautiful spectacle we were graced with.
