|Orb of light slowly drifting across the sky, then it speeds away.
Last July we had our biggest group see the light we had all seen it a few times to that point and had gotten made fun of for it. My friends house is a few blocks from Kipling and Colfax, and this night they had a few other friends come over to celebrate the night. We went out for a smoke at around 11 pm, then one of my friends noticed the light was back. It is very very bright, brighter than a star probably on the same scale of takeoff lights from planes which we see coming from Denver International Airport all the time. But there was no blinking lights to designate which side of the plane or helicopter was facing us.
It started at a 30 degree angle with the horizon and very slowly moved south, there is a utility pole out back so we used it for a point of reference if we stood still. It got past the pole in about 40 minutes, then it sped up to a planes speed, then shot off to the distance. We see these lights every few days, usually just one slow mover then reaches a point and takes off like a fighter jet. I used to work near Buckley AFB outside everyday so I'm very used to seeing jets do maneuvers overhead and the sound they produce. This orb of light hasn't made a sound ever. But we have seen it make dips, loops, and sharp full speed turns. We have watched it take 3 hours on the path down the horizon to the north judging location on tall trees then just gain speed and disappear on the horizon. And one time it even got close enough you could feel warmth on a freezing night on a 2012 December night, it also appeared like there was something pulsing down an aura on it. There were times when it would glow slightly red on the top of the bright white, then little red balls would move downward around the ball of light then combine at the bottom and disappear. It still looked small but I had the feeling if I threw a rock 40-50 feet up I would of hit it. We have no idea what it is and our phones and cameras won't register it. Altoget! her 20-30 people and a dog have seen these lights and didn't believe us until they got to see it for themselves.
