Is this a UFO over Denver?

It was just a week ago that Denver voters overwhelmingly rejected Initiative 300, which would have required the city to create a government-sponsored commission to study extraterrestrials -- many officials and voters feared such a commission would make Denver "a laughingstock." To those people, we say, where is your God now? And then we invite them to examine this video that appeared on YouTube this morning. Or should we say... materialized? Because, you know, it's a UFO.

That, or it's possibly maybe a blimp, but look how it disappears toward the end. Blimps don't just disappear, friends. At least, they don't unless they're blimps with aliens in them!
