MANITOU SPRINGS, COLO. -- An eyewitness to eerie images in the sky,
Steve "Colorado Guy" Garufi sighted what appeared
to be three seperate UFOs that roamed and hovered
above the city of Manitou Springs on Wednesday evening.
Although Steve feared the public may discount his
eyewitness testimony and might even view him as mentally unstable,
he nevertheless wanted the public to be notified of the sighting.
"It was so surreal," explained Steve, who was visibly shaken, "It was out north and they both had lights and were
kind of bouncing up and down in the air ... one looked like a dish-shaped thing."
Although Steve was distraught and experienced psychomotor retardation in his arms and hands,
he was wise enough to take pictures with his camera.
"I looked out and screamed, 'What is that?' but I guess none
of my neighbors were around," said Steve, "It was spooky."
Steve was typing away at his computer at 7
p.m., when he looked outside his bedroom window. An oval-shaped craft
with flittering lights appeared
to float in the sky. Within seconds, another U.F.O. appeared.
As the two U.F.O.'s approached closer
toward Ruxton Avenue,
the two objects suddenly disappeared.
Shortly after, Steve spotted another strange object: a dark, circular structure
that reflected the unusually bright moonlight of the evening.
The entire span of the sightings lasted only five minutes.
Johnny Dardan of Bakersfield, California comforted
Steve in a late-night phon conversation by
offering his own account of a U.F.O. sighting.
"At the time I was living in Anchorage and it was late at night,
maybe two in the morning. All of a sudden these bright lights came at
an incredible speed, speed you couldn't even imagine, and there were
lots of lights, so it wasn't an airplane. It went straight across
the sky and was gone, and the next day it was in the newspaper as a UFO," said Johnny.
Some have expressed suspicion over the validity of Steve's so-called sighting. Mandy Goldstein of
Colorado Springs said,
"Come on, you dimwit! One looks like a smoke alarm on the ceiling."
