Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Shape: Unknown
Duration:1 hour
Green flashes seen above Colorado Springs.

Starting at roughly 21:12, July 4, 2016, I (and others near me, as we were gathered watching a fireworks show) witnessed what seemed to be an oblong craft silently drifting through the clouds above the park that the public and I were in. It appeared fairly large and at high elevation, as it could be seen fairly well from within the clouds. For minutes at a time, the craft emitted repetitive green flashes from its underbelly. On rare occasion, it emitted much more rapid white flashes for significantly shorter periods. The craft seemed to have a stainless steel-like metallic sheen. It darted across the sky rapidly and silently. The maneuvers the craft performed were erratic and unpredictable, yet it hovered primarily above the aforementioned park and almost seemed to watch the fireworks (or the people’s reaction to which). It then disappeared and did not show up again.
