This is my 2nd early morning sighting of some type of UFO in the last two months. Since 12/19/08, having seen and reported a very up close UFO, Iï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ve felt almost paranoid to be truthful. Iï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ve found it best not to say too much to too many people, as they are justifiably skeptical.Since, my husband and I have been constantly looking to the skies over Highlands Ranch, CO.This morning, 01/03/2009, at 05:42, I was in our bedroom with the lights off. The skies were pitch black as I could see stars, and to the north, airplaneï¿½ï¿½ï¿½s lights approaching DIA.Looking out the window, in a southwestern direction, toward the mountains, quite a ways out in the distance, I saw an extremely bright light ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½fallingï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ straight down. At first I thought it may have been a comet (however, the light was ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½brilliantï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ and there was NO trail) and then it stopped...just stopped...and the brilliant white light suddenly disappeared and a horizontal strobe of varying colored lights came on the object.Still not certain of what I was seeing (I thought it may have been an airplane that had a close call and perhaps the lights were on wing tips as I was admittedly trying to talk myself out of what I was seeing) when suddenly a very long, diffused looking white light shot straight down from the object for about 2-3 seconds (the light was about 1/3 the distance between the object and the horizon from my viewpoint) and then that light went away. (If it had been daylight, Iï¿½ï¿½ï¿½d say it looked like a long, large jet-trailï¿½ï¿½ï¿½going straight DOWN!)As I noted the object had been in one location for a while now, I quickly went to the living room and opened the blinds and was relieved to STILL be able to see it.The view from the bedroom had been better, so I went back and as I was watching it, 2 very long, diffused looking white lights shot out horizontally (one to the left, one to the right of the object) again lasting about 2 seconds.There had been no movement of the object now for a number of minutes. About 2 minutes later, the 2 horizontal lights came on for about 2 seconds again! Then, all of the lights just disappeared.
