UFO sightings in Colorado and Utah have been under the spotlight after a local TV news reporter spotted UFOs himself and caught them on camera. Case reports from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) reveal recent similar sightings over the past several weeks from both states.
County and local police in Colorado have been investigating UFO reports there with a comment from NORAD that no anomalies have been tracked in that area. Fox 13 in Salt Lake City, Utah, covered the story too of unusual objects spotted in the sky.
Multiple Colorado witnesses are reporting the same UFO in both daytime and nighttime sightings over the past few weeks, according to recent MUFON case reports. There have been a total of 27 total UFO reports since September 1, 2014.
MUFON Science Review Board Director Robert Powell, reached in Texas yesterday, said an investigation has begun and that MUFON is looking into how some of the cases might be the same object.
“At least 11 of those 27 reports are related to the same type of object,” Powell said today. “The characteristics are daytime sightings, usually early morning or late evening, of circular orb-type objects at high altitude. There is a good possibility these are the Google Loon balloons.”
Project Loon is under development by Google with a mission to provide Internet access to rural areas. High-altitude balloons are placed at an altitude of about 20 miles to create an aerial wireless network with up to 3G-like speeds.
Utah MUFON is especially interested in Case 60490 that occurred on October 2, 2014, as a mass sighting from Salt Lake City to Vernal.
The following are 16 selected recent Colorado cases of interest – some include video and photographs.
