Around 6:50am mountain time on my way home from work I was dropping my co-worker off at the park and ride off I-70 in Genesee colorado. So as we cross over the interstate we were heading north. I was looking over the hills at the houses and out of nowhere this silver sphere appeared. The best way to describe it is think of a shooting star going from south to north. But it was so bright in the morning sky it seemed like if you condensed a nuclear explosion into a half a inch and ran it aross the sky. I have seen and been on many of aircraft and growing up in southern california (bakersfield) I have seen lots of missiles being tested in the skys thanks to Edwards Air Force Base. Anyway. I do not claim to believe in aliens or have every seen anything like this before. But I am a believer in ufos as of this morning. I came straight home and googled silver sphere ufo and came across your page. I also wrote a letter to Fox news Denver and ask them to email or call me back and let me know if anyone else has seen anything like this in west denver.
Details about the UFO:
Like I said it was on or around 6:50 am mountain time
A spherical object that was glowing (in daylight) but seemed metallic or shiny silver when it zoomed off and disappeared).
I have seen minutemen II tested and they travel around 15,000 mph and I would say that this was ten time faster than that.
Off the hill ahead of me and square ahead of me I would say a mile ahead and maybe half a mile up.
Conditions where: the sun was rising from the east and no clouds in the sky unless you looked east towards Kansas.
It appear just like a shooting star then disappeared just like a shooting star but it was moving alot faster than any shooting star I have ever seen.
Im a miner at the Henderson mine in Empire. I do not get freaked out very easy. And I screamed so loud I woke up my coworker whom was sleeping. He looked at me like I was crazy. I told him what I have seen. I also called my father. And, he thought it was the suns reflexion off a airplane. I guess you would have to be there.
My question that bothers me is as follows. Do abductions happen after sightings like this or am I safe. Im pretty wound up and worried. If you have more questions please just as. I would like to learn more about this experience and ones others have had.
Thanks, Freaked out in DENVER.
