Location: Longmont, CO
Shape: Oval
Duration:5 minutes
12 red/orange large, identical, oval objects, flying exact same speed, slowly over Longmont, CO.

I saw a dozen oval/elongated rectangular large (car sized?) objects flying slowly across sky heading NE. All objects were identical. They made absolutely no sound. Each had red/orange lights on each side and maybe one in the middle – the lights kind of blended together – hard to tell. They all traveled at the same speed and though not in a straight line held the exact line pattern the entire time they traveled through the sky. They appeared to be flying about the same height as small airplanes do in our area – 1,500 feet? They did not waver in speed or direction. Lights did not flicker – only saw steady red/orange lights on each.

See youtube video “six orange UFO fireball phenomenon 2013” – this is almost identical to what I saw except objects were more oval/elongated rectangular than round. Color and lights were exactly the same as seen in this video.


Hi Peter,
Turns out what I saw was Chinese lanterns after all. Some people sent up about 15 of them at sunset that day, in honor of someone who died 5 yrs ago. If you google Times Call Longmont Aliens, you'll see the story.

I guess my eyes aren't as good as I thought they were!

So sorry to take up so much of your time.
