Location: Lakewood, CO
Shape: Light
Light seen in sky over Lakewood area.

I woke up at around 2 am and focused on my east facing window for some reason. We have an annoying dog as our backyard neighbors and I thought maybe the dog had barked, so I was laying in bed looking out the window waiting for a bark, when I saw a small white light in the sky zoom in from the left (north) at a great deal of speed.

The light stopped within the view of my window and stopped moving. I would estimate the light to be over the Colfax/Wadsworth area, but it was hard to tell as the I had a very limited frame of reference.

In my sleep addled state I thought at first that it was a plane, but then I realIzed how fast it moved into my field of view and that it had stopped. I surmised that if it was a plane, it's reference within the window would change against the tree tops I can also see In the window. I watched the light for a full 20 minutes and it never moved. I then began to think it was a star, but again no other stars were visible due to the light pollution of Denver and it had literally flown into my field of view earlier.

I drifted off to sleep at this time for about 10 minutes by my brdside clock and when I looked again the object was still in its same place and not moving.

The light looked white and "flickery" like a star looks but it's position never moved against any reference points in my window. It never grew larger or smaller either, so I surmise it was hovering. It also had no noise I could discern, nor did it project any light (like a searchlight) it just looked like a star. I fell asleep again at 2:35 and woke back up at 2:45 and the object was gone from view completely. I even got out of bed to see if it was now behind a tree, but it was completely gone from view.
