It’s a mile high mystery in the skies over Denver, Colo. Strange objects caught on camera flying over the city and nobody can explain it.

KDVR first learned about these sightings when a metro area man, who does not want to be identified brought them his home video. He captured the images on his digital camera from a hilltop in Federal Heights looking south toward downtown Denver.

“The flying objects appear around noon or 1:00 p.m. at least a couple of times a week,” he said. "The strangest part is they are flying too fast to see with the naked eye, but when we slowed down the video, several UFOs appear.

KDVR wanted to verify the video we saw was legitimate and not doctored in anyway. So a photojournalist set up his camera in the same spot, and shot video from just before noon until just after 1:00 p.m. He also captured something unexplained on video.

Aviation expert Steve Cowell is a former commercial pilot, instructor and FAA accident prevention counselor.

He thought he would have a logical explanation, until he watched the video. “That is not an airplane, that is not a helicopter, those are not birds, I can’t identify it,” he said. Click here to read the full story from our sister station
