Leadville, CO

Shape: Circle | Duration: 10 seconds
Source:

We were camping near Mt. Massive near Leadville, CO. A bright orange/amber orb appeared from the southwest, traveling towards the northeast. Was traveling faster than an airplane (we saw several planes passing overhead), but not as fast as a meteor. A distinct vapor trail was visible behind the craft, as reflected by the moonlight. I would estimate the altitude to be between 15,000 to 18,000 ft above sea level. As an airline pilot, it was something unique that I was unable to explain. The orb disappeared behind Mt. Massive.
