Garfield County law enforcement officials said they got a citizen’s report of “green and white lights falling fast” over the Battlement Mesa community early Monday morning, although there has been no confirmation from any official source.

Sheriff’s spokesperson Tanny McGinnis confirmed that “we did get a report … and that was at 6:46 this morning,” from a resident of the county who claimed to have seen the lights.

McGinnis said the sheriff’s office checked with the Federal Aviation Administration to see if there were any reports of downed aircraft in the vicinity at that time, but the response was negative.

She said no other reports had come in to the sheriff’s office by the early afternoon.
