A Youtube video posted this week by residents of Lafayette, Colorado shows three seemingly unconnected red lights floating in the night sky on March 20, 2011.
During the video, voices can be heard trying to figure out what the lights could be. “That is the creepiest thing ever,” one man can be heard saying. “I wonder whether there will be anything in the news about this tomorrow,” another says.
The lights were also captured on video by others in the Lafayette area.
Instead of aliens, maybe it is just road flares tied to balloons. Someone did just that in 2010 in Southern California. Shown below on the left is the scene from Colorado last week, and on the right is shown the road flares from last year in California.
