craft emerged from lightening storm

21:43 mountain time: I was watching a powerful lightening storm off to the north east of FT Collins. I had taken some footage from downstairs, but was to low to see over the trees. I decided to go upstairs and look out a back window to see if I could capture more from the storm. I looked at my phone which had a full battery just 5 minutes earlier, and the battery went from a full charge down to no charge. I thought how strange. I plugged it in and then heard a sound like a loud roar of thunder.

As I looked out the window I could see something in the distance emerging from the storm which was more of a light show from all of the lightening. At first I thought it was a plane, but then soon realized this was no plane. It was much too large and It was glowing red and looked like it had a very bright white light that came around, but from the inside as it circled around whatever this was.

As I watched it fly to the west towards the Mountains the loud roar seemed! to just stop, but the object kept moving. just seconds after it was out of sight the lightening and wind calmed down. I have seen many strange things, but I must say this is the strangest yet.
