Colorado UFO Reports

Large White Light
May 31, 2024 - Tarryall/lake george, Colorado

A group of 5 people camping at a dispersed campground off of Tarryall Rd. Access to China Wall Trailhead, just north east of Badger Mountain. A clear night 10:30pm, clear view of the tower complex on top of Badger Mountain when one of us spotted a large white light emitting from a central point in the sky above the tower complex fade into view. It appeared to shift directions while the light emissions changed differently than an object with a tail of light (like a commit or shooting star) in an amorphous glow of light. The light was visible for a period of 5 seconds, and then quickly faded out into darkness, was gone for 5 seconds, and then reappeared in a different spot in the sky (15-20° up and to the left from where it was initially sighted) it appeared to be closer this time, slightly larger, and moving without an assumed trajectory with the light emmitions shifting around in no correlation to direction of travel. The second phenomenon lasted for about 15 to 20 seconds, all of us witnessed the event. 2 of us struggled to attempt to video it, as it was truly the most mysterious thing we had ever witnessed. We have done a bit of research since returning after the weekend. Notable findings ufo report #1309 & #1224 stating similar sightings, as well as one of the OHV trails in the area called White Object Rd. (CO TREX trail index # 214.C), where at the high point of the trail, the tower complex on top of Badger Mountain is visible, roughly 20° shift of prospective to the west. View Report

Dark Mass Flying Overhead
March 22, 2024 - Colorado springs, Colorado

My husband was starting up his car and I looked up at the stars while waiting for him in our front yard. There was a dark mass, what we thought to be a satellite, flying over. I pointed up and asked if he saw it. He looked up and as he was saying, "oh yeah it's a just a satellite", the object zigzagged back and forth, sped up, and disappeared going north east over the horizon! View Report

Squadron of Lights in the Sky
November 1, 2023 - White river city, Colorado

I was on my yearly hunting trip to Colorado, camped by Rio Blanco lake on hwy 64 near Piceance creek road. I had just started to go pee while I was facing southwest and over the mountain came what I can best describe as a squadron of light's. My friend seen it as well we both said what the heck is that. My phone was in my tent I wish I could have gotten a picture, I can say that there were at least 100 evenly spaced lights five wide by 70 or so long, I was talking to my friend and he said maybe it was starlink satellites, and about that time they just blinked out like turning off a light switch. So I finished peeing and went to get my phone and looked up starlink and they orbit in a single file row these were not like that. Its been on my mind ever since. Went on mufon looking to see if any pictures may be on their site none that I could find. I would really like to know what they were? View Report

Chain of Lights in the Sky
October 1, 2023 - Montrose, Colorado

Outside my aunt's house near Cobble Creek golf course. Saw a perfectly aligned set of lights moving through the air. My husband saw it as well. I ran inside to get phone and by time I was out it had moved above the house, still in same formation but then it just faded away. Someone suggested drones (rodeo was in town) or fireworks but it was not like anything I've ever seen before. View Report

May 12, 2023 - Greeley, Colorado

I was at a park sitting on a table talking to my wife, who was at home w the kids when something Very shiny and illuminating in the sky caught my eye. There was 3 other people w me but doing their own thing. I stop talking to her and go,"what is that!" It's 4:30pm in the afternoon and it's not dark till about 7:40pm. Anyway, I'm on the phone and this cigar shaped thing is so bright(during the day too) that it caught my eye. I observed this thing hovering and not moving. I was miles away but this thing was definitely huge. While it hovered, it was just illuminating like a metallic light. It sat for a few seconds until it started heading North for a couple seconds. Then out of nowhere, it switched direction south with such easy that there's no way it a plane etc. It then zoomed off with no sound and such a speed that it went from being a huge object to gone within 5 seconds. It was in the sky from when I seen it til it disappeared for maybe 30 seconds. I've seen meteorites etc before and there is no way what I have saw, was any of that. View Report

February 27, 2023 - Louisville, Colorado

~7:30pm while star gazing and on a dog walk I viewed an amorphous cluster of lights appearing like group of balloons but illuminated. It was hard to judge distance but at least as high as low flying aircraft and as such moved across the sky and was out of view. No sound. I assumed it was Starlink but upon researching I discovered Starlink to be in a line not a swarm or cluster. I can’t find any similar sightings online. View Report

If I wasn’t looking up would have not even known. View Report

December 30, 2022 - Trinidad, Colorado

I have witnessed these things for weeks now. At 1st I noticed they were orbs in the sky at night. They seem to also notice me. Last night was the 1st time I've seen it in a different form. The form looked like some sort of geometric shape with all sorts of colors. They also were on the ground level looking through my window. They are all sorts of colors and seem to be able to go through any sort of light. When I played the video back I heard strange sounds almost like sonar. When you look at any sort of light on someone's house or even in your house you will start to see the energy get brighter. I am not sure what these are but I do not think the government could make something this sophisticated. What scares me is what are they here witnessing and is this the end of our planet . I am able to get them to engage with me but do not know how to communicate with them do follow me from place to place. I am just not sure if they are threatening or just curious. Even though they are fascinatineeded the more and more they revealed themselves to me the more I get a little terrified. View Report

December 17, 2022 - Colorado springs , Colorado

While I was driving back home from the car wash I seen a disc shaped object with lights all around it. I lowered my window down to make sure it wasn't a reflection of some light but nope it was still there. It happened for about 15 seconds so I didn't have time to pull out my phone. It happened on Chelton and Pikes Peak. Whatever it was freaked me out. I know my eyes aren't playing games with me because my vision is 20-15 (better than perfect vision). View Report

I was filming the sun, as usual, with my iPhone 11 (can’t do with ‘good’ cameras) and captured 4 UFOs- one, top left of video, appears bright and white then goes dark, like a dark blue or black. One is a light that appears and disappears almost instantly. The one on top right comes into view looking like a drum with the bottom third Green. The next image of it shows a brown/gold-ish color.

Sometime around noon on November 30th at Highway I-25 and C470 just south of Denver I saw a transparent structure about the size of a small house floating rapidly through the sky. I could tell how fast it was going because it was above cars on the highway it was going about a hundred miles an hour and that's about it you can see me through it I had a structure like some kind of ship I guess I couldn't imagine it it's something I've never seen before.

I saw a bright greenish yellow light behind some trees standing still. First I thought it was a street light then it started moving and then I thought it was a plane.Then it just moved way too fast to be a plane. It didn't have a blinking light like a plane either. It had a solid light. It shot across the sky lightning fast and then vanished. View Report

April 21, 2022 - Windsor, Colorado

I never reported this because I guess I didn’t know if to make a big deal of it but I watched the documentary of UFOs on netflix and I wanted to share something that I haven’t told many people about. I completed service as a Weld County Youth Conservation Corps Chainsaw Crew Member for the city of Greeley. We were in the town of Salida, Colorado at what is called “Colorado Fire Camp.” I was sitting outside one night with 2 other service members and we noticed a long line of light in the sky. It was a small line from where we could see it I could measure it with my finger but it seemed to be thousands of feet in the air so what looked like a small line was most likely many of thousands of feet long. This object did not seem to have a formed shape to it or anything it was just a line of light. I did happen to take a video of this and I’m the first 2 or 3 seconds of the video you can clearly see this line of light. After the camera can’t adjust to it very well but you can hear me and my friends laughing and making jokes about it because the feeling of the situation was almost comical probably because we didn’t know what to think of it but I truly think we may have seen something unexplained. After the video was taken we kept our eyes on the light and it began to fade out. A co-servicemen of mine and I saw what we thought were almost slow moving shooting stars. Something that was moving faster then human made technology but not going as fast as what a shooting star would move like. A shooting star would most likely only be seen by a person for a split second and if you called it out to a person who wasn’t looking they wouldn’t see it cause shooting stars are too fast for that. But we had time to notice this small light moving at a fairly fast pace very high in the sky. I wanted to report this because I would be able to feel at ease if this could be explained but if this isn’t something that can’t be explained I would have a story that was reviewed and explained by others like this organization. I would be happy to show the video I have and or to talk to someone about it to see if maybe there were other reports of this in the area during that time period. I will provide my email but I am a 20 yr old guy that doesn’t like being on email a whole lot so I wouldn’t be a much faster contact with my number ###-###-####. I do need to check my email sometimes for work purposes or something of that nature so if email is the only way you can contact me I still might be able to get back. View Report

I was flying from Boston to LA when I noticed 9 or 10 objects flying to the right of us. Very very bright lights. They were lower to the ground. I believe I was flying over a mountain range but not sure which one. Rockies? Maybe. I believe I was the only one who saw this. I did get about an 8 second video of it. View Report

December 31, 2016 - Denver , Colorado

Getting out of the car going to a New Years party, I noticed a slow glowing orb white in color slowly rising far off in the distance in the sky over Denver, CO, then another one appears below it, then another, as each one got higher another would appear under in, until 6 or 7 glowing orbs were slowly going up towards space in a vertical line formation. This happened for about 5 minutes or so, then the leading orb disappeared, then shortly after the next highest orb disappeared, until the final one had disappeared, it was a total of around 10 minutes of time.

UFO Report #: 758
December 9, 2013 - San luis, Colorado

While living off the land in San Luis, Colorado at approximately 11 pm, Colorado, my dog alerted me to look outside to observe a solid white ball or orb approximately 2000 feet above me my head looking at a 45 degree angle. Apparently my dog could hear it coming 7 seconds before I could see it, but not hear it. There was no afterburners or sound. The orb traveled from my location toward and past Mount Blanca that sat north of Fort Garland, Colorado. Mount Blanca was approximately 30 miles due North of me. The orb covered that distance in 2 seconds if not less. The size of the orb was about 60 feet in circumference if I had to guess, but it was just like a large cotton ball. About 12 days after the incident, I started to explain the strange incident to a couple of neighbors. When I got to the part about my dog's alerting me to look outside my structure they stopped me in mid story to ask if it was a white ball of light. I acknowledged yes and they said their dog reacted the same way. It would not be until 2016 the US Govt acknowledged the same sightings. I wonder if they are aware animals can sense the UFOs in transient? Then Christmas Eve 2013 approximately 13 days later at approximately 7 pm, while on the phone with my brother I observed on the earth's outer atmosphere what I thought was a shooting star at first (obviously a meteor glancing the atmosphere) but then the object made a major change in direction as if a backwards cursive #7. So it moved south to north then abruptly switched back south briefly and curved eastward before disappearing making a backward cursive numerical 7. If I had to toss out a distance on the outer edge of our planet this object traveled in 2 seconds I would guess 2,000 miles but its not accurate. A friend suggested years latter who worked in the aviation industry that perhaps one explanation could be that two objects had a near collision and averted disaster to explain one object pulling out of our atmosphere and another having to dive briefly into our atmosphere to avoid collision before pulling back out of our atmosphere.

February 6, 2010 - Hermosa, Colorado

For context I write this because i thought i was crazy but i saw a video on youtube of reported sitings of UFOs that were "pill" shaped. I was in a car on a blue bird day in Southern Colorado and I looked out the window and in the sky, not sure how high up it was, was a metallic shapped pill object just hanging in the air. It looked like a verticle silver tiktac. There appeared to be no combustion and it definitely was not a balloon. I became concerned and looked to the other passengers in the car to point what I was looking at. When I returned to show them what I was looking at, the pill object was gone. View Report

December 18, 2001 - Pueblo county, Colorado

Around 2001 Comanche power plant, Pueblo,CO Ido not have an exact date or proof but I’ve been searching for símilat sightings. When I was 17 (I am now 39) I was driving late at night next to the Comanche power plant in Pueblo, CO. I was under no influence and was driving toward the interstate I25. I saw a v shaped aircraft that was hovering at right above tree line close to the ground. This craft was enormous about 20 regular airplanes in length. There were 3 windows illuminated in dim orange reddish light. As soon as I saw this craft, I believe “it “ knew and disappears almost immediately. I was very terrified. I got home (about 20 minutes from the plant). And had the most bizarre ( really life like dream) of my life. This might be a hallucination brought on by fear. But I had an extremely vivid dream of Jesus coming out of a ufo (with a blinding white robe and gold halo) telling me to ( I can’t remember the exact words said) to not to try to understand. That what I saw saw was beyond my comprehension. I was then awakened by what felt like 2 fingers applying pressure to my forearm. The sun was rising when I was woke up. I had 2 small circular bruises. But no scabs. I saw nothing when I woke up. This is the only unexplainable thing to ever happen to me in my life. I have been searching with anyone with a similar experience. Felt like I should let people know this happened to me. View Report
