(Newser) – ET, phone Colorado. Lafayette residents are still scratching their heads after seeing three red lights in a triangular shape hover in the sky last week, move off, then vanish. A father videotaped the lights that were spotted by his son at work, as well as by a number of townies. "It was completely quiet—no noise at all," said dad Leroy van der Vegt. A neighbor insisted the lights resembled the small bright alien ships from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Another witness said the lights emitted a "weird" energy that evoked in him a "hyper need to move." His "mind started racing, my body started shaking, I freaked out," he told ABC News. Local speculation is that the UFO was sent by aliens, the government—or both. (Click for a tale of UFOs, the UN, and the British government...)
