Chasing UFOs Sighting of the Week: ‘Three Red Lights’ Over Lafayette, CO

This week’s sighting comes to us from Joey Valdez, who caught a mysterious triangle of lights on camera:

“I was driving home and saw these lights in a location where I happen to drive by everyday and know there are no lights like that. Ever. I got home, videotaped it, and uploaded it to YouTube. 3 Red Lights (also the name of my Youtube video) started in a triangle, then moved into a straight line, then started to disappear after about 10-11 minutes of being in the same location.”

Joey’s sighting is a great example of a popular type of UFO shape: a chevron. Chevron UFOs can be lined with many lights or a simple boomerang-shaped dark or metallic craft. One of the most well-known chevron UFO sightings is known as ‘The Phoenix Lights‘, witnessed by thousands of people on March 13, 1997 in the Phoenix, AZ area.

    I saw three fast moving ones on the same day…. in New York at 8:45pm or so ….. They were moving South to North… mine weren’t blinking though…. Def. not a plane and with binoculars they looked like giant fire orbs ..

    This most likely won’t be acted upon but…. At the 33 to 34 min. mark when Ryder is in the van trying to get the others to see the “orbs” she is seeing; Ryder totally misses a LARGE UFO on the upper right of the screen. It comes from behind the palm trees and moves left to right out of frame. This looks to me like a triangular UFO or possibly a craft like thew ones’ Ed Walters has recorded in Pensacola. I would love someone else’s opinion!!!

    I can’t put into words my feelings about the episodes I’ve watched. I’ve tried and tried to be objective, but this pgm. is
    so weak, silly, and…… I don’t know what else to say.
    I have seen daylight discs over our farm in NY State in the
    early1950’s, and nothing this pgm. has EVER shown comes close to believable. I was in Broadcasting here for 30 years,
    and your pgm. is, I’m so sorry to write, a JOKE. You actually
    GET PAID to do this? The “dramatic” exclamations followed
    by a commercial break are BEYOND amateurish. Please either stop the foolishness, or cancel this program.
