The latest UFO sighting captured on camera is perhaps one of the more remarkable videos. The mysterious lights appeared over Lafayette, Colorado last week. The three red lights formed a triangular shape and was very slow moving according to witnesses.
Leroy van der Vegt was one of the dozens of witnesses that saw the event. Van der Vegt and his son Nick were able to capture the sight on camera. “It was completely quiet. No noise at all,” van der Vegt said. The lights did not blink but remained in the triangle shape as they hovered in the sky.
Van der Vegt doesn’t know what it was but he is sure that what he saw was not a satellite, helicopter or airplane. Eventually, the triangle headed northeast and the lights faded, van der Vegt said.
Lester Valdez and all of his neighbors saw the unidentified lights. “I have never witnessed anything like that,” said Valdez. He said they looked like tiny, bright alien ships from “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.”
“It was exactly something like that where you see an object and they all got into a pattern and they stood in a pattern, and they all moved in a direction and then they pretty much dropped and that was it,” Valdez said.
Grant Gazvoda said he saw the lights when he and some friends were out stargazing. “When it flew over, there was a really weird energy. Almost like a hyper need to move. My mind started racing. My body started shaking,” Gazvoda said. “I freaked out at that point.” When asked what he thought the lights could be, Gazvoda said speculation is running rampant through town. “UFO, maybe government stuff. People are saying aliens,” he said.
One resident reported that his car shut itself off when the red lights passed over where he was. He stated the car turned itself back on about 15 minutes later. The witness also reported hearing the sound of “wind and gears turning” from a nearby wooded area.
Not all Lafayette residents are convinced though. Katie and Kevin Caron say there must be a reasonable explanation for the lights that doesn’t involve little green men. “There’s a lot of things you can’t explain but the idea of it being an alien spacecraft is pretty wacky,” Kevin Caron said.
Federal Aviation Administration has not released any comment concerning the event.
