Two groups of UFO's over the Denver metro during 4th of July fireworks.

Watching fireworks from the eastern slope of Green Mountain in Lakewood, CO with a group with 4 adults and 3 kids. Other larger groups in the vicinity also reported seeing the objects.

There were to distinct groups. The first and most suspicious group of 4 appeared from our vantage point to be over DIA. This group changed formation repeatedly but would return to a group of 3 in line with one that moved randomly around them. These objects moved laterally and up and down. No man made aircraft that I have ever seen moves in this manner. I was in an ait squadron in the Navy and have seen all sorts of planes, helicopters, etc. These objects did not move in a manner I have witnessed in man-made aircraft.

The second group appeared to be a bit north and ~5 miles west of the first group. This was a group of 5. It is possible that this 2nd group could have been parachutists that I have heard were working a fireworks show. They did appear to descend.

This report was prompted by the fact that this was the 2nd time I have seen a similar event on the 4th of July. Either last year or the year before we witnessed objects that moved like the eastern-most group reported last night. They most definitely moved 1000's of feet up and down and potentially miles side to side in a way that was not possible by man-made aircraft. Also, these objects were in the air long enough that we actually got bored watching them and went back to watch fireworks. We would watch the UFO's for a few minutes, the fireworks for a few minutes and so on for 15-20 minutes. Since they appeared to be in the area around the airport, I was skeptical that they could be anything other than aircraft, but this was quickly cleared up by the extreme maneuvering that we witnessed.
