Washington, Mar 29 (ANI): A strange triangular formation of red lights over Lafayette, Colorado, which was caught on camera, has left many spooked and wondering if it was a UFO.
Leroy van der Vegt and his son Nick captured the sight on camera, and the unidentified red lights did not blink but were in a triangular shape as they hovered in the sky.
"It was completely quiet. No noise at all," ABC News quoted van der Vegt as saying. He doesn't know what it was but he is sure that what he saw was not a satellite, helicopter or airplane.
He said the triangle eventually headed northeast and the lights faded. Lester Valdez and all of his neighbours saw the unidentified lights.
"I have never witnessed anything like that," Valdez said. He said they looked like tiny, bright alien ships from 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'.
"It was exactly something like that where you see an object and they all got into a pattern and they stood in a pattern, and they all moved in a direction and then they pretty much dropped and that was it," Valdez said.
Sceptics like Lafayette residents Katie and Kevin Caron say there must be a reasonable explanation for the lights that doesn't involve little green men.
"There's a lot of things you can't explain but the idea of it being an alien spacecraft is pretty wacky," Kevin added. (ANI)
