This is the San Luis Valley.  There is an excellent recent book on
sightings in this area called "Mysterious Valley" by Chris O'Brien, who
lives there (  There are a ton of
sightings of anomalous lights and objects in the area (my wife and I have
even seen them during a visit).  The head of the valley is not far from
NORAD headquarters in Cheyenne Mountain.  There was also the 1994 incident
when a large number of witnesses thought they saw a craft crash, NORAD
called the local sheriff to take a look from his chopper, then sent him to
the wrong location, and then claimed it all must have been a mistake (the
Greenie Mountain Incident).
