RAW: Mysterious drones flying nighttime patterns over northeast Colorado

RAW: Mysterious drones flying nighttime patterns over northeast Colorado

Jennifer Rollins was visiting her parents in rural Yuma County the day after Christmas when her husband looked up and said, “Hey, look, some drones.”

“We thought he was kidding because we’ve been reading the news stories,” she said.

But he wasn’t — up in the air was some sort of contraption, with red and flashing white lights, that rotated as it moved up and down through the sky.

    I saw something strange yesterday… it looks like star.. its moving upside down..

  2. Cass Patt on April 21, 2021 at 1:33 am

    3 of these just circled all around me. Its so weird. I was star gazing smoking a cigarette, and they all popped up at once. Just VERY slowly creeping in the sky. So strange.. It really freaked me out.

  3. Onyx1392 on April 21, 2021 at 1:33 am

    seen 2 in so FL…one in Miami 5 meter above me and looked like a 5 pt star. Video crappy but it splits into 2 round lights then back to 1
    Second one one hour drive north, fly right above me again but had flashing lights..both size of large bird but completely silent..the second video frame by frame looks like a bunch of unidentified (but looks important) crap in a junk drawer

    Im out looking now….Stars, planets whatever they are, some are lower than others or farther way and higher or low enough to blocked a tree….they werent travelling…literally like a pair 3D glasses in a IMAX movie

  8. marleen on April 21, 2021 at 1:43 am

    I have footage on my I phone. I saw what kind of looks like this on my I phone. However, with my naked eye it was huge, kind of looked like a huge fire ball, but colours would spread out while moving.

  9. MonaLisa Skywatcher on April 21, 2021 at 1:43 am

    I live here in Colorado and just filmed something like this but I don’t think they were drones .. I posted on my YouTube channel if anyones interested .

  10. Keith Elms on April 21, 2021 at 1:44 am

    Im in Sydney Australia an im followed by 20+ of these fake stars they come close but i can never see shape of body just the light maybe has to do with bill gates blocking out the sun

  11. RealJap on April 21, 2021 at 1:45 am

    This exactly same thing is what I’m seeing for the last two nights. I filmed it but without a tripod. I hope it will appear tonight again so I can properly film it.

  12. Sabrina Serpieri on April 21, 2021 at 1:49 am

    Thank you for this! Our house is surrounded with these at night, every window one of these are pointing at! Now I finally know what they are! Advice anyone?

  13. Edward Forsthoffer on April 21, 2021 at 1:49 am

    Just seen the same thing here in upstate NY

  14. kuzin eddy on April 21, 2021 at 1:50 am

    I first thought my buddy was full of shit when he told me about drones at night . For you non believers take a flashlight with strobe ability and aim it at it . Better yet a green laser, just make sure it isn’t a plane which is real easy to tell the difference. There are up to as many as 8 around my place at night, gonna make a thermos of 90 weight coffee and see where they go when the sun comes up.

  15. Kathie Kirkpatrick on April 21, 2021 at 1:50 am

    We have many here in Texas. I do security on a gated community and watched two come down side by side and over my head low enough I could have thrown something and hit them. Have filmed them for 2 years especially over the refinery I was at. They do seem to know when I am taking pictures as they tend to relocate I think it’s other worldly LOL. They were as tall as a 2-3 story house in an up right triangle shape. Why are we surrounded by these?

  16. Maria Santoyo Blanco on April 21, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Can y’all please go check out a video clip I uploaded please and tell we what it is. I know what I saw. Everyone says it looks like a drone but the way those lights move and when it got closer to me it looked like a saucer.

  17. А Р И Я on April 21, 2021 at 1:52 am

    omg just saw one last night, not in Colorado but it looked so weird lol only appeared for a second

  18. tom tracker on April 21, 2021 at 1:52 am

    Not a drone 🙂

  19. Robynn Simone Official on April 21, 2021 at 1:53 am

    In Canada- have seen one twice in the same direction… but now it’s 4am…

  20. Yadigg Yugonchosemebabi on April 21, 2021 at 1:54 am

    This is happening to me right now in eastern PA, I can see at least 4-5 drones, pretty far away but I can tell they aren’t stars- they’re moving a little, and flashing red and green lights… what are they there for???

  21. Goat #1 on April 21, 2021 at 1:54 am

    Just seen something similar appearing in the sky above our house in Richmond Virginia its 9:53 p.m on February 3rd,2021 what is it really 🤔

  22. Shay Lamb on April 21, 2021 at 1:55 am

    These are everywhere here in Ohio. I’ve got so much footage. They sit above my road. I thought they were stars until I took knock over some electoral close and there is some really bright lights inside of them and then they fly away.

  23. Bushman007 on April 21, 2021 at 1:58 am

    I’m from Canada and I keep seeing one of these near my parents place as well. It honestly kinda pisses me off not knowing what they’re doing up there.

  24. Mukesh Chaudhary on April 21, 2021 at 1:58 am

    Am in india, also seen this kind of object tomorrow and i have footage of it

  25. Benjamin Piper on April 21, 2021 at 2:00 am

    I don’t think these are drones.

  26. JMGenius on April 21, 2021 at 2:02 am

    Someone look at the latest video on my channel(not begging), just want some ideas

  27. Joshua Stahl on April 21, 2021 at 2:03 am

    The drones we now should know where headed to the new space force base. "Didnt know" Colorado Springs would have been picked. Yet a point on how they hide stuff.

  28. Tech-Omega on April 21, 2021 at 2:05 am

    I know your telling the truth. I have similar videos. I bet you heard helicopters several times but never ambulances. People are programmed and i can relate. It took a lot for me to wake up. Things are changing on earth. Be prepared for the future.

  29. Deeznutz : on April 21, 2021 at 2:05 am

    I’m in suburbs orlando I’ve been seeing one around nighttime. At first thought it was a plane but it’s movements are circular and going back and forth it appears

  30. Kungfucowgirl on April 21, 2021 at 2:05 am

    So I woke up at 3:40 am and in my window I saw the exact same thing it was weird and kept going higher and higher and in a square line

  31. Ron Brannen on April 21, 2021 at 2:06 am

    I’d say if it’s in your area hovering over you land or house shoot it down

  32. Chris Jamel on April 21, 2021 at 2:06 am

    There are alot of drones in my area of Dallas-Fort Worth…I cant find any source…can yall help

  33. green dodo on April 21, 2021 at 2:06 am

    I intentionally was looking for something similar. Im way over here in Malaysia. Tbh, i was on a date, im from a small town, and its a very busy body town, so met a guy and we can’t date anywhere visible, so we always stay hidden at my farm at night, it was 2-3 times a week. I never realized this before, but last friday i realized some of the flickering lights are not fireflies, i started to stare at it and realized there’s 2 lights kept "flying", unlike the fireflies pattern.this one kept flickering of white light. It was hovering and didn’t stop flickering. It was hovering over 2-3 feet, that was in front of us, maybe 20 feet away. And then i started looking at the moon and sometime later i realized there was a same pattern of flickering lights, except this one it was maybe 30-40 feet high,way above our 20 foot palm trees. Except this one was flickering white and red lights, it was hovering over non stop until it disappeared from our view. I didnt take any recording because my phone is shitty to capture that kind of stuff and secondly because i was scared shit of my pants because the place was nowhere it was acres and acres of palm plantation fields. There are few people who lived there and only a few swift birdhouse, of it was a drone the question is why at night secondly ot couldn’t be the villagers because non of them would be investing in a drone and i know that because in a town of 3000 people, you will know who have a drone if you ask anyone, which they don’t have. Its bugging me and i cant go check it out because i don’t have a car and im scared to go back haha

  34. Jinzo Gatez on April 21, 2021 at 2:07 am

    They’re in every major city within the US. Americas best kept secret out in the open. #BigBrotherTech

  35. Indigo Song on April 21, 2021 at 2:07 am

    It’s a ship not a drone

  36. Amanda Marie on April 21, 2021 at 2:11 am

  37. Fate on April 21, 2021 at 2:11 am

  39. Workout Man on April 21, 2021 at 2:15 am

    People need to repent and stop doing evil. The most high is watching everybody chariots of the most high is real

  40. Khaodik on April 21, 2021 at 2:16 am

    I live in the southern part of Colorado and I see them every night between 9:00-12:00pm most times two or three of them at different times going in opposite directions flying at a constant speed

  41. SuryaPrakash Paliwal on April 21, 2021 at 2:17 am

    its not drone and i am sure about it, see this video on link

  42. Kathleen-Marie Jada on April 21, 2021 at 2:17 am

    Over here in the United Kingdom we have Large drones that fly over my town real low just above our roof tops flashing a green and red flashing light on it…… Nobody apart from me questions WTF these are….. I believe it’s just the Government spying on us as usual 🤷🏼‍♀️

  43. USAlien234 on April 21, 2021 at 2:18 am

    Inside edition has an interview with a guy who was caught on a ring cam flying into space on the same day this happened. He denies it saying his camera looped and made it look likehe disappeared. He doesn’t disappear thou. He is shot into space with a beam of light. Plus you never see the guys face. Could be anyone doing the interview.

  44. brewmaster0507 on April 21, 2021 at 2:19 am

    been watching them over pennsylvannia every night since august. they almost form a perfect grid pattern . look at them thru nightvision. theres more than you see with just your eyes.

  45. Maddmavic on April 21, 2021 at 2:19 am

    Its called long exposure night photography

  46. Tyson Games on April 21, 2021 at 2:21 am

    I really don’t know. I live in East Texas and there were at least 100 or more objects flying over my house last night. They were all bright red lights. Military drones? I hope. 😯 I have them on camera, but you know it never looks the way it really looks like in real life. The footage is so dark it could be a kids toy in a dark room. It’s a shame because it was the strangest thing I ever saw.

  47. Be Foreal on April 21, 2021 at 2:23 am

    I want to get my falcon to take it down

  48. Tamil gamer on April 21, 2021 at 2:24 am

    I am also see real this one but that move very fast that is not a comet that moves cross and cross just 30 minutes i see i scare

  49. 111915 528518 on April 21, 2021 at 2:26 am

    I see these in Florida too but it is a bight orange color that stays lit, and it happens at night. I don’t know what it is either. I don’t think it is a drone, because I own a DJI phantom and the lights flash when flying which usually on any type of United States FAA regulated aircraft, the lights should be blinking or have some kind of a flash. But this is bright orange light and stays lit. So who knows what it is !?!?! It is not an American aircraft because that is the law under the FAA to have lights that blink.
