A Colorado witness at Loveland described an “unusual radiant light source” moving above the foothills of the Rocky Mountains that could not be identified, according to testimony in Case 64781 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was at home shaving in an upstairs bathroom at 9:12 pm on March 10, 2015, when he opened a window and “noticed a bright, steady, unchanging, radiant source of white light in close proximity to the tops of the initial foothills” west of his location.
The witness first thought the light was positioned on a light pole and later thought it might be automobile headlights.
“I was suddenly moderately surprised and shocked to observe the travelling object seemingly to stop its movement and execute a rapid drop in apparent altitude of seemingly a few hundred feet, before apparently being able to arrest the plunge in the altitude and coming to a stop briefly,” the witness stated.
The light on the object seemed to change from a steady glow to random flickering.
“After the brief arrest meant of the altitude plunge, the object then began to haltingly ascend back in altitude, until it was again back at its seemingly original altitude, where it again stopped movement briefly.”
The witness now realized the light could not be an automobile and decided to continue to watch it.
“After the brief stop, upon the regaining of its former altitude, the object then began the same, slow, travelling speed, although now on a generally northern trajectory. While the object was performing the flickering aspect of its light radiance, reduced glare intensity from the object was occasionally low enough to pick out more detained features of the object generating the light radiance.”
The witness described the object.
“Object appeared to be a structured construct, of a roughly raised-dome shape, with the white light radiating from the domed area, and from what appeared to be a series of rectangular panels spaced around the circumference of the object’s lower one-third area.”
The object seemed to be repeating its actions.
“After slowly travelling back to the general north for a short distance, near where the object was originally noticed, the object was observed to repeat a virtually identical rapid drop in its altitude and seemingly struggle to get such halted and original altitude level re-established, and stopping briefly, yet again.”
