Location: Wellington Lake, CO
|3 bright lights, stationary for at least 45 mins, evenly spaced in the afternoon sun.
3 bright stationary objects were noticed approx 30 degrees off the SSW hilly horizon, just below and in a line east of the mid-afternoon sun. The bright white lights which were of approx equal intensity shone steady and stationary for the entire 45min or so we remained lakeside. A mid-level opaque cloud passed over 2 of the lights, creating a slight dimming and color shift consistent with ice/water vapor, and suggesting these objects were very high in the atmosphere. The sun moved westward over time- the objects remained exactly the same intensity (less the cloud) and location relative to the trees, for the entire period. They were consistently spaced about one "visual" foot apart in the sky in a line running east/west, approx parallel to the general horizon. Wellington Lake is approx 15 miles SSW of Bailey Colorado, 1.5 hours SW of Denver. It was hard to determine if the objects were lit or were reflecting the sun. The even intensity over time suggests the latter.
