|Metallic, triangular object spotted hovering in broad daylight near NORAD.
On June 18th my girlfriend & I were driving South on highway 115 very close to the Fort Carson Base in Colorado Springs. We both independently spotted a metallic, triangular object which appeared to be "hovering" (no discernible movement or jet plumes visible)about about a 15-degree angle in the vicinity of Cheyenne Mountain, home of NORAD.
We both thought it might have been a large advertising balloon/blimp, but the object appeared to be much too high in altitude (maybe 1/4 mile high) and we could see no trace of attaching ropes or attached cables. We had a very clear view of the object as the skies were very clear that afternoon. We did not see any obvious lights and did not hear any noise. There was no obvious interference on the truck radio and cell phones were not in use.
We viewed the object for about 30 seconds and then lost sight of it when we passed some trees on the side of the road. When our view of the sky was restored (3 seconds time), the object had completely vanished.
