As first reported by 9News, the object did not seem on radar in the region, but nearly collided with a private jet at 8,000 feet above Cherry Creek.
In an audio recording from the jet cockpit, presented by LiveATC.net, a pilot can be heard telling air traffic officials, “[I] never know if it was a remote managed aircraft or what, but a thing just went by the other way. About 20-30 seconds ago… And it was like a massive remote controlled aircraft.
In March of 2011, residents of close by Lafayette, Colorado, recorded video of three hovering, seemingly disconnected lights in the sky there.
The three lights remained in a triangular pattern, moving slowly towards the northeast. The Daily Digital camera reports that when one light extinguished, witnesses say the other two “just turned off and had been gone.”
In 2010, Denver voters rejected a ballot measure that would’ve produced a commission to track extraterrestrials. The proposal was the brainchild of Jeff Peckman, who gained fame in 2008 after claiming to have video of a reside alien peeking through a window in Nebraska.
