Reported: 8/10/1999 09:49
Posted: 8/10/1999
Location: Denver, CO
Shape: Light
Duration: 3 MINUTES
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I witnessed 2 unusual and unidentifiable light sources in the sky above Denver. It was an unseasonably warm September evening, no clouds, no wind.

I was leaving my sister's apartment and speaking to the manager. 2 bright white lights caught my attention to the north-west, approx. the distance of an approaching aircraft. The lights seemed to "turn" as if in a sweeping gesture, and "crossed" each other in what appeared to be a figure eight. They stopped, one making a sharp move "downward", the other repeated the move back up. The lights "crossed each other again and "disappeared" in one move towards the N.E. I turned to the manager, who also witnessed the lights, and we were both dumbstruck. Although we are quite close to the airport, I believe that the maneuvers displayed by this light would be impossible for any commercial plane, or helicopter. The lights were steady, unlike the movement of a searchlight on a helicopter, or headlight on an aircraft. These lights were dancing, almost playing with each other. The apartment manager was approx. 38-42 years old, wearing glasses. I was 26 years old, no eyewear. I was a retail manager. Neither of us were drinking or smoking, both of us were clear-headed and completely lucid at the time of the event.
