I was driving home just after dark on Sunday evening, 1-20-13. As I merged onto Foothills Hwy from the Diagonal, going south, I was on a high point on the north east edge of Boulder. I looked ahead of me across the valley into the southern sky and saw three bright lights in a horizontal line, well above the horizon but still fairly low in the sky and east of the Flatirons, a local landmark to the west.
My first thought was that they were UFOs, as I had never seen stars like that in that location, and I travel that road often. I was fascinated and watched them closely. I kept asking myself if they could really be UFOs. I wondered if they could be planes, but they appeared to be stationary. Also, there actually was an airliner to the left (east) of the formation, and it had lights, left a short trail, and was smaller than the lights I was seeing. There were no other stars in that part of the sky. I wondered if they could be airplanes, but they were not blinking nor did they have any red taillights, and were larger than the airplane that was right there to compare them with.
I drove south to Arapahoe Rd and turned left. Because I was now in the valley, the objects were much closer to the horizon and hidden by landscape features and buildings as I drove east.
I noticed they had moved into a triangle, and then I could only see two objects, but the top one had become VERY bright and much larger. It was easily the brightest object in the sky except the moon which had risen to the east. I pulled over a couple of times when I got the chance, to just look at the two objects.I did not think to take a picture, and in any case had left my phone at home that day and didn’t have a camera with me. The bright one went back to its original size and brightness, and then it got very bright and large again. The two objects did not make any sudden moves, but seemed to be traveling slowly south.
When I got home about 20 minutes later, I told my husband I had just seen something unusual. He immediately said “THREE LIGHTS IN THE SKY?” It turns out he had just arrived home too, and had been driving south on 75th St from Lookout Rd, which is about 5 miles east of and parallel to Foothills Hwy., the road I had been on. He also saw the three lights which appeared to him to be directly in front of him above the horizon in a line, saw them form an equilateral triangle, and then saw the bottom right object move up and behind the top object, which had become very bright and larger. He lost sight of the formation behind the horizon and landscape as the road descended.
I was fired up to go to high ground to see if it were still there, so I went back out to the car, picked up my neighbor who was also interested, and we drove south to higher ground where we had a clear view of the horizon. By then it was 6:40 and we did not see anything unusual.
We both saw the same thing at the same time, from just a few miles apart. High Strangeness over Colorado tonight, folks.
