The jury remains out on exactly what intelligence is operating UFOs in our skies, but one Colorado witness at Gunbarrel who was stopped at a train gate crossing reports the disc-shaped object hovered above him and then moved on once the train was gone, according to March 1, 2014, testimony in Case 54385 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness filed a report today and is recalling the event where he was driving home from a friend's home in Gunbarrel about midnight on September 8, 2007.
"Got to the train tracks," the witness stated. "A train was coming and the boom gates came down."
But then he looked up.
"Looked up while waiting for train to pass as I was sitting in my car. Saw a gray disc object hovering and watched this object for five minutes."
Once the train passed and the gates raised, the witness continued driving.
"I proceeded to go east on highway 119 to Longmont."
Looking back, the witness noticed the object was now moving - and going in the opposite direction.
