Men report UFO sighting in Silverthorne

Advertisement

— "It wasn't a bird. It wasn't a plane. It definitely wasn't Superman," said Rod Pscholka, a Silverthorne resident.

So what did Pscholka and his two friends see while sitting on the deck of his Ptarmigan Mountain home Sunday afternoon? They say they saw a flying object, of the unidentifiable variety, and want to know if they're the only ones who beheld the strange sight.

"We couldn't tell what we were seeing," Pscholka said. "It was far enough out there, we couldn't tell what it was. It was maybe 15-feet long. It was pretty weird, whatever it was. Maybe it's the Air Force."

According to Pat Mauro, who lives in Bailey and was visiting Pscholka for the weekend, the "thing" traveled around the Gore Range about 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

Mauro and Pscholka said the object flew toward a meadow filled with elk, scared the animals and then floated out of sight. The whole episode lasted between five and 10 minutes.

"It was really, really weird," Mauro said. "It was too big to be a bird. The way it scared the elk was really strange. It was like it was checking out the elk. The way it was connected and moving, I've never seen anything like that before."

So far, these guys are the only ones reporting the unexplained flying object.

Too funny. I knew both of these guys in high school back in the late '70's. Good chance there were little green guys running around inside their heads then!

Gimmie a break. I was trying to get a photo of the elk for National Geographic.

My husband and I were throwing around a frisbee with Christmas lights on it. We confess.

People just don't realize that space travel requires time travel. As soon as they do, I'll be able to get my elk photos without a bunch of lookie-lews scaring them off.

The vehicle actually makes quite a noise. The reason people don't report it is that the sound is coming out around 300 miliseconds before you perceive the vehicle, so by the time humans can sense its presence, the sound has already gone. It's in a different time reference and has no application in the current future that followed the 300 milisecond jump from the past. It's simple, really, once you understand what's going on.

Uh, wait a second . . . that date says 2009 . . . oops . . .

Question- do any of you know how many star systems have been reached by the first regular radio broadcasts from earth? That is, how many stars are within about 100 light years?

There are not that many. However, Lucy and Superman kinescope shows from the 50s have been popular on QHVS (quantum holographic video storage) at a few locations in the Andromeda galaxy for about 400 years.

Thanks for the help. I seriously thought that radio signals were just now reaching the closest stars, but Google produced results under "stars proximity earth" that indicates that there are about a dozen stars within a dozen light years of earth.

I feel sorry for these guys. Their observation will be fodder for ridcule for years, not just the posters here.
