Several people called the CBS4 newsroom about the object while CBS4 photojournalist Jeremiah Bellile captured video of it.

A group called the Loon Project said they released a high altitude weather balloon in the area on Monday. The FAA agreed that’s most likely what it was.

Earlier this year, the Colorado Department of Public Safety investigated mysterious drones flying over Colorado’s Eastern Plains. The mysterious sightings were also investigated by the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office which developed a task force along with the FAA, which also looked into the matter.

    I personally believe in the existence of extraterrestrials. Sightings of UFOs were mainstream in the United States since the 1940s. In fact there were ancient civilizations that have images that shows that they had knowledge of the existence of UFOs. The ancient Egyptians, African tribes, and Natives in the Americas have images of UFOs on plenty of artifacts before humanity even developed spacecraft technology. There are billions of planets and stars in our galaxy, and there are billions of galaxies in the known universe. There is a strong chance that intelligent life exist on other planets due to these numbers. There are also reports all over the world of people reporting to see UFOs. The United States government spent millions of dollars investigating UFOs, so apparently the government takes them seriously. I research many alien and cryptid stories.

    They’re extraterrestrial probes scouring the galaxy for intelligent life. You probably know the punchline.

    We saw 2 of them on Sunday morning from Kremmling area. Looked like they were over Winter Park or around there…

    What made it suspicious was that it didn’t seem to be moving one bit. I thought it might have been the star Polaris except that it was too high in the sky.
