Duration: 15 seconds
At 9:48 pm around Feb 5th, an Orange solid glowing basketball size object was flying 30,000 feet or more moving at a constant speed from west to east. It was a neat color orange that never changed in brightness or in direction or speed (much like a satellite).

This is not the first UFO I've seen. I've seen them two times earlier around 1997. The first time I witnessed one was a Spectacular site. It happened over Colorado Springs viewed from just south of Cripple Creek very far away. I was with a roommate walk back to town after running out of gas.

The point of light moved over C.S., just like a laser pointer on a wall would if you moved it wildly back and forth up and down. It did this for about 3 min.
