LAFAYETTE, CO— Remember those odd lights that appeared in the night sky in El Paso late last year? Similar lights appeared in Lafayette, CO., last week.
MSNBC reported that three red lights in a triangle were seen hovering in the sky by several residents around 8:30 p.m. And though the night sky was clear, no one could see anything connecting the lights.
Leroy Vandervegt, 50, and his son Nick, 17, recorded the sighting.
Denver International Airport officials declined to comment on the unusual sightings, and Allen Kenitzer, the Federal Aviation Administration's spokesman for the Rocky Mountain region, said no one in his department saw anything abnormal.
So for now, this is indeed an unidentified flying object.
In October of 2010, above the skies of Northeast and East El Paso, a sight that was a little more than stunning.
Video, captured by one of our photographers shows one solitary light that appears to be falling in the sky. That light suddenly breaks apart and into three separate lights.
Those lights then seem to freeze in the air and just hover.
Eventually a fourth light can be seen and the lights appear to be hovering around each other. Then they all disappear.
We are told that Airsho pilots were performing manuevers that Friday night and the lights were likely part of that.
