|blue and green flaming disk shaped object
I was driving North on i-25 around 7pm. Movement to my left (west) caught my eye. I looked over to see something with green and blue flames engulfing the back end of the object. I was looking at it from its side. The front of the object looked something like the nose section from the side of a C-130 plane. There were no wings or elongated fuselage or tail section and it was much too short to be an airplane. The front half of the object was lit by the bright green and blue flames coming out of the back section. The back section was completely engulfed in flames. Then the flames stopped suddenly when the object was about 200 feet above the ground. For a second I saw a dark object, but I couldn't make out what it was or its general shape and then it was completely lost in the dark. Other than the blue and green flames, the object was not lit up in any way. It was heading mostly north with a little easterly direction too and moving at a 30 degree angle towards the ground. estimate its speed at around 130-150mph. In my opinion, considering the length of the object and the quick glimpse I had as the flames were extinguished, that I was looking at a saucer shaped craft from the side.
I have checked multiple times tonight and there have been no reports of a crash site. I also drove around the area where it would have crashed and there were no wrecked buildings or police or fire trucks anywhere to be seen. I saw no fires or smoke. My guess is that there was not an actual crash despite the steep angle towards the ground and the 200 feet or so until impact. No airplane could have navigated away without impacting the ground.
