Sighting Details

I did some more analysis on the images I shot last night. A quick recap: Last night I saw a bright light shoot across Colorado Springs from east to west. When it got to the west side of the Springs, it split into five individual lights and hovered there. It's altitude was lower than Pikes Peak (I could see the mountain range silhouette behind the light). I ran inside to get a camera, and when I came back out, there was a single light hovering over the mountain range to the south of Pikes Peak. Last night in the dark, I thought it was over Cheyenne Mountain (which houses the Norad facility), but as it turns out, it was hovering over a peak somewhere between Pikes Peak and Cheyenne Mountain (I don't know the names of the peaks). I shot a series of photos on tripod, overexposed, so that I could see the mountain range. I was able to overlay six photos with the peak lined up, to show the object was not stationary (like a bright star would be). To the naked eye, and in those six photos, the object appeared as a very bright light. I then took several photos at a much faster shutter speed to get a proper exposure on the object. For these photos (still on tripod) I used the mirror lock up function and the self-timer to insure there was no camera shake. The details in the round disk object are the real details, not an anomaly caused by camera movement... There are details, but surprisingly, it doesn't look like anything I've ever seen. Any ideas???
