The photograph above, which seems to show some variety of odd aerial illumination, was taken in early June by Greg Archer, a photographer based out of Castle Rock, Colorado, during a tremendous lightning storm. Archer was outdoors at the time the photos were taken, and the lights seemed to hang in midair for close to five minutes, suspended motionless and in a straight line. While expressing his own skepticism regarding their potential identity, he has nonetheless incurred the wrath of the “debunker” crown over at the Intrepid Mag Blog, where many have sought to explain away the illuminations as merely being light reflecting off the glass window he took the photos through. Greg, however, reminds us he was outdoors at the time the photos were taken, and that after numerous calls to officials in the area, was able to discern that the lights were not any known military craft operating at the time.
