Bob Fiske of Vail, Colorado, writer for www.vaildaily.com compiled a list of sighting of UFOs starting April 26th, with the last one on May 9th, all over Vail Valley area. Fiske is an investigator for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and hopes more witnesses will come forward with UFO sightings from this Vail micro-flap. One of the photos from the rash of sightings can be seen online at www.ufosnw.com
Below are Fiske’s collection of sightings.
On Monday, May 4, at 3:30 p.m. a witness in Frisco heard a jet going over and saw an F-16 flying low over the valley. Looking towards Buffalo Mountain, he spotted a silvery disc hovering there.
On Wednesday, May 6, a witness riding a chairlift at A-Basin at 3:15 p.m. spotted a fast-moving silent craft overhead and was able to get a quick photo of the object, which he estimated was moving at 1,500 mph.
On Thursday, May 7, there were three sightings along the I-70 corridor, with an early morning sighting in Edwards where at 4:30 a.m. a witness observed a disc-shaped UFO with flashing lights that hovered to the northwest. The disc appeared to drop a diamond-shaped object that descended to the ground, and then the disc departed at high speed to the northwest.
That evening about 8 p.m., two witnesses in Avon reported seeing a disc with flashing lights that appeared to be over the main entrance to the Beaver Creek Resort. This disc moved rapidly to the northeast, then went at a slower speed to the east before ascending into a cloud. Later that night a woman in Eagle saw brightly flashing strobe lights in the sky that moved around and did not appear to come from any aircraft.
On Saturday morning, May 9, a witness in Vail saw a white cigar-shaped UFO flying from west to east in the sky north of Vail. The UFO went into a small cloud as it headed east but did not come of the other side. This craft may have been followed by an USAF jet.
