    Mysterious Swarms of Giant Drones Keep Appearing at Night Over Colorado

    Image

    Something strange has been happening in eastern Colorado at night.

    Since the week of Christmas, giant drones measuring up to 6 feet (1.8 metres) across have been spotted in the sky at night, sometimes in swarms as large as 30.

    The Denver Post first reported these mysterious drone sightings in northeastern Colorado on December 23. Since then, sightings have spanned six counties across Colorado and Nebraska.

    Phillips County Sheriff Thomas Elliott had no answer for where the drones came from or whom they belonged to but did have a rough grasp on their flying habits.

    "They've been doing a grid search, a grid pattern," he told The Denver Post. "They fly one square and then they fly another square."

    The drones, estimated to have 6-foot wingspans, have been flying over Phillips and Yuma counties every night for about the past week, Elliott said Monday. Each night, at least 17 drones appear at about 7 o'clock and disappear at about 10 o'clock, staying 200 to 300 feet in the air.

    Sightings have appeared in largely uncontrolled airspace and sparely populated areas.

  • Colorado Springs isn't far from there. Lots of room for black projects in Colorado.

  • Not sensing the ET vibe here...Rather something military-related.

    I continue to monitor the situation closely. :smilingalien:

  • Not sure if y'all properly appreciate this, but 'swarming drones' has been on the front edge of research since cheap drones came out in 2010 or so. And a couple years later they caught the eye of the DOD, both in the air and on the sea as unmanned surface craft. Skynet (and Surfacenet apparently), here we come!
