Location: Boulder, CO
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 1min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Three people see a illuminated V shaped object fly over them at night, fast, low, silent, making 2 passes.

A child and two adults were sitting in a hottub on a cold partly cloudy night. The 10 yr old boy looks up and points and screams, "Whats that!?" The adults looked but didnt see anything. He said it was flying to the south. The child said I just saw a UFO and he jumped out and ran inside scared to death. A few minutes later as the adults talked about how scared he looked, the child slowly comes back out and as we say, " Come back in it was probably just a shooting star", he points back up and says "There it is!" and we all looked and saw a huge V shaped triangle made up of redish, dull, illuminated sections flying north. It was flying low and silent and fast about 1000 feet up. We were all in shock and after a few minutes of staring at the sky. We all went inside in amazment. The boy said when it first came by it was rounded in the front not V shaped and had more lights and was flying lower.
