Workers Report They Saw 'Massive UFO' Above Red Rocks, Colorado Concert Venue After Show

Colorado, I remind the readers, was the first state to legalize recreational marijuana, and I'm sure that fact has no connection to the claims by a dozen workers cleaning up at the Centennial State's famous Red Rocks Amphitheater concert venue about sighting alien spacecraft.

Perhaps the aliens were just looking for more information as to when Taylor Swift would be playing Red Rocks.

A dozen employees at the Red Rocks Amphitheater watched a massive UFO light up the Colorado sky this month, according to the National UFO Reporting Center.

The workers were cleaning up around 1 a.m. June 5 — not long after country music star Ian Munsick took the stage — when they spotted a dark metallic disk appear.

“One of our coworkers suddenly said to us, ‘Hey, what is that over there? It looks like a spaceship,'” the anonymous tipster wrote in their report.

It wasn't a spaceship.

“We all turned to look in the direction he was pointing and sure enough, there was a UFO hovering about a half a mile to a mile north of red rocks,” the poster continued.

“A dozen of us saw it. We all kept asking each other, ‘Are you seeing this too?’ It was a resounding ‘yes’ from everyone in the group.”

Whatever they saw, it wasn't a spaceship.

The report the workers filed with the National UFO Reporting Center can be found here. It reads in part:

What we saw was a classic disc shaped metallic craft that was several hundred yards long. It had three levels of windows, almost like really long 3 story office building. This thing was totally silent. It didn't make a sound. What's even crazier is that as soon as we all started noticing it and stopped what we were doing to pay attention to it, the craft tipped at an angle and slowly started moving belly-first to the east. Then it started fading away until it was invisible. It didn't shoot off into the distance. It simply dissolved into the ether. We all watched it vanish.

This was not a plane. It wasn't a satellite, a drone, or anything like that. There was no mistaking what this was: We all saw a giant disc shaped craft hovering a few hundred feet above the ground with three rows of windows and lights. Then we all saw it fade into nothing as soon as it knew it was being watched.
There were a dozen other people who saw it with me.

Maybe it wasn't a plane, or a satellite, or a drone - although it would take some doing to dissuade me from the drone possibility. But it wasn't a spaceship.

It's sad, of course, that none of the viewers of this phenomenon were somehow able to have some device, something small enough to be carried, perhaps, that would have allowed them to take photos or even video of this mysterious object. That would have at least been some level of evidence that this actually happened, and may have been able to allow some high-forehead video or photo analysis types to look at the data and maybe develop some realistic notion as to what, if anything, these folks saw. Perhaps one day, that technology will be readily available and we'll be able to solve mysteries like this.

In the meantime, I'm pretty sure that, somewhere around Red Rocks, there are a couple of teenaged boys with a cheap drone, some battery-powered lights, and a roll of aluminum foil, and they are doubtless enjoying a few good laughs over all this.
