Three Colorado residents reported UFO sightings during the month of April. Photos available for two of them are nearly identical.

The first sighting reported via the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) occurred on April 3, 2016 near Grant CO. The report describes hovering, pulsating lights and noises, witnessed by multiple people camping in Pike National Forest. A flash of light appeared in a clear sky around midnight, followed by green flashing lights a short time later. A second witness reported hearing  shrill mechanical beeps immediately followed by the green flashes.

The second sighting reported to MUFON happened on April 3, 2016, during the daytime, in Littleton CO. Rectangular objects were observed in the sky by golfers. They flew slowly around the area for about two hours. Later, the witness and family observed military jets flying around the same area and they photographed one of the objects before it disappeared.

The third sighting was the morning of April 6, 2016. A Denver CO resident saw what they described as a “flying cigar shaped whited object about the size of a cargo plane.” The object had no wings or tail, and appeared rounded. The photographs of this object almost match the Littleton sighting photographs.

Photographs from the last two sightings are available online by searching the MUFON UFO sighting database.
