i own a travel trailer in howard colorado that is in a storage lot . i went there to get a few things out of storage around 8.00a.m..i pulled up to the camper ,got out of my truck ,skies are mostly clear , but with really odd looking clouds that seemed to catch my attention,orange gray ,in color,,then thats when i noticed the object,bright white not moving ,about5-6 thousand feet elevation watched for a few minutes ,thought it might be a ballon,so i opened the camper and grapped a high powered rifle scope that i had.i focused on it ,sitting in my truck with the door open, and using the whip antenna as a reference point to see if the object moved, it didnt ,for more than an hour and a half.using the scope i focused in on it ,it seemed to have a red light incircling it, rotating around its circumference. the weather is really good today ,no snow,moving clouds mostly sunny. i almost got bored watching it ,called a couple friends ,didnt get an answer,,about 9.30am ,,took another look before i left to go back home to salida ,,thats WHEN I THINK I SAW I GUESS WAS A MOTHERSHIP transucent in color long cigar shape very big am guessing quarter mile in length ,moving super fast ,just below the ufo ,maybe 1000 ft. horz. i could make out the outline of it ,the middle seemed to be somewhat transparent.it dissappeared into a cloud ,never came out the other side,i didnt have my camera,,was late for work,, had to go,,by the way .south of here is the san luis valley,,east is norad, this is my first sighting here ,,my friends witnessed the famous salida co. sighting in early 2000.. daytime video ,, i saw that video ,,looked somewhat similar to what i saw.i saw similar object in 1999 middle of day,, i took pictures of that object,,when the pictures were developed ,, i was in shock,,maybe a dozen smaller orbs or objects flying around the main object,pictures also showed whitelines or streaks in some frames,, thanks *(Wit's first name removed--CMS/sg).
