According to a running total managed by the National UFO Reporting Center, there have been 153 UFO sightings reported in Colorado through August 3, 2020.

Among the sightings are reports of slow moving triangle-shaped aircraft, coordinated flying spheres, and bright stars appearing in broad daylight. While most of the sightings have occurred in remote areas, many large Front Range cities have also made the list.

For instance, on July 12, three bright green lights were allegedly spotted in the shape of a triangle above Colorado Springs. A month prior, three white craft were spotted flying back and forth at a very high altitude above the same city.

This is a huge uptick from last year, when fewer than 150 Colorado sightings were tallied on the website throughout the entirety of 2019. In total, the website has data on more than 2,065 sightings in Colorado with some dating back to the 2000s.

It's worth mentioning that some question the legitimacy of this report, as it is based on witness testimony and reporters are anonymous.

Most recently, a UFO was reported above the Fort Collins area. A video of that can be seen here.

I have over 6000 hrs in the cockpit. I do not understand why a UFO from another planet would require position lights. Do they not have the technology for positive target acquisition? Seems more strange.
