|bright orange glow illuminating south Douglas Pass north of grand Junction CO
Early morning Dec 29, 2013 driving on hwy 139 heading south over Douglas pass and before we got to top I commented to my companion that it was beautiful as the sky was an orange color and illuminated the skyline with trees and mountain tops,
once we were on top we saw two separate lit up areas on top of ridges the one farther away was much brighter but both were deep orange also as we started up Douglas it was snowing but the sky was clear.. as neither of us are very familiar with area we took note of the glowing lights but only realized what we may have saw because of a group of about 15 sheriff and I assume undercover vehicles were at bottom of the south side of Douglas pass and had what appeared to be an antenne with a green light on top about 30 feet in the air as we continued down we stopped to look back to see if we could see what the lights were about but we saw nothing but black sky not even a glow in the canyon.
