A possible sighting of an unidentified flying object northwest of Cheyenne was reported by various individuals early this morning, including a pilot flying freright for the FAA.

Denny Dennis, FAA coordinator for the state of Wyoming in Casper, said Cheyenne 911 Center reported about 2:35 a.m. they had received several calls about a posssible UFO spotted northwest of Cheyenne in the Horsecreek vicinity.

Regina Himmelman, a spokeswoman for 911, said the center received the initial call from Cheyenne Police Officer Marty Luna about an object hovering about 15,000 feet with white and blue lights and a series of red vertical running lights along the underside.

The 911 incident report indicated the officer said the object wa neither an aircraft nor a planet. Luna was unavailable for comment.

Himmelman said the 911 Center also received similar reports of visual sightings from unidentified personnel at F.E. Warren Air Force Base and Chugwater residents.

Dennis said the Casper office contacted the FAA regional center in Denver and were told no objects were reported on its radar system.

Two freighters flying to Denver through Casper were "asked to look," Dennis said, adding that about 3 a.m. one pilot "reported a bright light with little or no movement" in the vicinity of the initial sighting while the other saw nothing.

Dennis said the FAA report shows that at 4:55 a.m. the Cheyenne police reported the object still was hovering on the horizon but nothing yet had appeared on the Denver center's radar.
