Golden orb seen over Colorado Springs

Sighting in Colorado Springs, July 4, 2005 at 8 pm I was at my friend Gail's house in the Springs. We were sitting on her deck after a BBQ when she looked up at the cloud pattern toward the East and said, Oh, there's a ship up there, I feel it. She is a practicing psychic with years of good experience so I pay attention when she feels something. I looked where she was pointing and saw nothing. While we were both looking in the area suddenly a bright illuminated golden spot (small circle) manifested there and traveled from East to West at a constant speed. It never changed its course, speed or brightness and went across the sky in about one minute while we watched it. We have a lot of military in the area, Ft Carson, NORAD, Schreiver Air Base, Space Command and we see aircraft all the time. This was not a plane or a chopper. Even though it was the fourth of July, it was not any kind of fireworks I had ever seen. While we thought at first it might have been a mylar balloon, it traveled in the opposite direction to the prevailing wind with no bobbing or wobble we could discern, more like a determined path than one subject to the wind. We have no other explanation than it was a ship, like she intuited.
