Posted: 5/31/2022
Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Shape: Changing
Duration: Watched it apprx. 5 mins
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Was looking at stars and one seemed to burst into flames, then suddenly went back to looking like a star.

Was leaving the house and, because of all the fires, it had been ages since I had seen the stars, so I was looking at them. Suddenly, one very bright star looked as though there was an incredibly bright corona around it. I stopped to watch it in order to verify what I had seen. When I found the star again, I watched for several seconds and, just as I had myself convinced I had been seeing things, a very bright flame-like something appeared either out of the "star" or in front of it. I only know that the star was no longer visible. As I watched for a few seconds, the "fire" disappeated and there was just the bright "star". I took the video to prove to myself, and others, that I had actually seen it, and then watched this happen over and over again. Being stopped on the shoulder, illegally, on a fairly busy road, I left and it was still there. If anyone knows what it is (satellite, space junk, etc) I would love to know.
Thank you for reading the ramblings of a very excited person who has longed to see a UFO for decades.
