I was out at approximately 2 AM. I’m a late night person due to the hours I’ve worked in the past. This particular evening it was summer, a nice clear night, like a mirror clear. Then something came into view from the west which caught my eye. I looked over at this lighted item. I looked at it and more intensly due to it seemed to be coming towards me and it seemed to be spinning! Well at this time I dropped the hose, ran into the house and grabbed my camera.
This was a digital camera-lumix-12 X zoom-25-mm-wide angled. So when I came back outside, it was still right where I left it. So I set my camera onto night time photo and started zooming in. Then the object started towards the mountain range. It was still hovering. I thought man this has to be a helicopter? But Ive seen many helicopters flying around in Colorado Springs, many times, at any time of day or night.
This was not one of them, nor a plane due to the obvious hoover motion. It wasn’t hoovering like perfect, it was moving like eradic from side to side and up and down. I started snaping the pics. It was closer to the mountain peaks by this time, so I was losing sight except for the bright spinning lights. I snapped one photo after another and this is what I saw when I downloaded them.
