A local of Colorado claimed to have spotted a lighted object hovering above nearby mountains in Colorado Springs. The aerial thing in the sky appeared to be a horseshoe in shape that quickly disappeared, according to Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Case 62085 from witness reporting database.
The reporting witness was driving together with his wife on December 16, 2014, when a UFO was observed over the north ridge of Pikes Peak.
While moving west on Vindicator, the couple saw a light that had a shape of a horseshoe. The wife managed to take two photos of the strange object in the sky using a cell phone.
The reporting witness said that the pictures, which were both taken at 4:48 p.m. on December 16 using an iPhone 5s, aren’t as detailed as what they observed, but a light can be seen with a sense of direction.
The reporting witness explained that the brightness of the object at dusk made them noticed the object. They both had no clue what it might have been when they first noticed it, but the reporting witness’ wife first thought it was some type of a rocket.
As described by the witness, the light or object was just over the north ridge of Pikes Peak having a yellow-orange-reddish light that was dazzling. It has a horseshoe shape with shoe-like ends that pointed down and turned at an angle. Upon turning, they saw an opening at the bottom as well as the arch at the top. The UFO seemed to be moving in southern direction in a slow manner and then hovering afterwards.
The couple had witnessed the entire UFO activity for two minutes before the object disappeared without a trace. After their sighting, the couple tried to search the internet for an explanation, but they could not find one until they stumbled with MUFON.
