light did not conform to any flight pattern...

Brighton, Colorado - 06-18-18

Shape: Light - Duration: ~3 minutes

Observed single white light stationary in sky during heavy rain and hail storm.

UFO Report June 18, 2018. I live in Brighton, Colorado, and tonight I was home on my front porch which faces west watching a heavy rain and small hail storm at about 9:45 PM, which occured about half an hour after the first heavy hail storm which contained literally golf ball and larger sized hail, which I have heard of and seen pictures of, but never in person until tonight.

While observing the completely overcast night sky to the west, I saw a single white light at about a 35 Degree elevation directly west of my location. It didn't pulse or flash or change color. It didn't come closer or move further away or up or down or to one side or the other.

It remained visible for 2 to 3 minutes in the same place. It only seemed to "wobble" or move slightly in a random manner and increased and decreased in apparent brightness until it slowly dimmed and completely faded from view and did not reappear.

I don't know what it was, but I know what it wasn't. It wasn't a fixed wing airplane because it didn't move. It wasn't a helicopter because no helicopter could operate in or just below the clouds in such weather. It wasn't a star or planet because the sky was completely obscured.

We live about 12 miles straight distance from DIA (Denver International Airport) where I work for a major airline. I am very familiar with the aircraft flight patterns over my house. This light did not conform to any flight pattern I would expect to see.

I am an aircraft mechanic and private pilot with over 30 years experience working on and flying in aircraft beginning with obtaining my private pilot's licence in 1987 and flying on Navy P-3 Orion sub hunter aircraft in 1989.

I have seen several "anomalous things" in the sky over the years, but have never felt so compelled to report them as this time because there is no "prosaic" explanation I can think of to dismiss this.
