Did I Finally See a UFO?!

Any of you who know me, know I'm totally fascinated with ghosts, UFOs, bigfoot - anything weird or bizarre.  I would love to experience any of these oddities.
Well, I may have done so but I just don't know.

I wake up early, usually between 5am and 6am.  The other morning I woke up at 5:30 and turned on the tv to watch the Olympics.  On the side of our rental we have French doors that look out over the foothills with a few homes on acreages just across Dry Creek Rd.

I was watching tv when I noticed (it was still very dark outside) out of the corner of my eye, an orange object that looked to be about the size of a marble (from here) moving horizontally across the window.  I thought it must be a reflection.  Nothing on the tv was orange and I didn't have any lights on in the house.  I watched it for a minute never taking my eyes off it because I couldn't figure out what it was.  There are no roads over there.  Finally I got up and walked over to the glass door and peered out.

I cupped my hands around my eyes and watched as this orange glowing "orb" moved slowing between our house and the foothills.  It went behind a tree and then came out the other side, then, changed to white - like a headlight but not nearly as bright.  I couldn't believe my eyes because I knew after plastering my face against the window that it was definitely not a reflection of something.  There was something there.

I ran the few steps to grab the binocs and when I looked back it was gone.  I looked through the binocs for a long time trying to find it again but couldn't.  I have no idea what I saw but it was weird.

Below is a picture.  I didn't take this picture, it was on the internet, but this is exactly what it looked like.

Oh! Could it have been a bicyclist on one of the trails?

Nope, Linda thought that too. As I look out my window during daylight to where I saw it, it was between the trees just off Echinova Dr. and the house just across Dry Creek. It was definately in the air.

And wasn't it to the north-----where the moon never is?

Hey, Jody...send me an email and I will send you pictures of what I saw on 8-8-12! Lyn W.

So Lyn, how far away were the rods you saw? That's bizarre and don't they move pretty fast? I can't believe you got pictures!

I'm so jealous! Meg and boys and I went on tour of the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park last week, the hotel that inspired Steven King to write "The Shinning" book. I am a believer, but it was pretty lame how that tried to sell the fact that the hotel has ghost kids runnin' around...still fun hour spent tho!
