Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 minutes
Noticed what first appeared to be an airplane in the sky, but never did change position, eventually it seemed to move farther away, or up, but stayed in its same position in the sky was a triangle with white,red and green lights.

Late one Friday night at approximately 1:30a.m., my husband and I were going to bed. My husband noticed through our bedroom window, what he first thought was an airplane, but after watching it for a moment, he realized it wasn't moving. He then told me to come and look at this object. I also observed what I first thought was an airplane. This object had white lights, with flashing green and red lights. We noticed that this object didn't change its position in the sky, but seemed to be floating in the same place. We ran and got binoculars and were able to see that this object was triangular in shape with rows of white lights, with red and green lights at the bottom. We decided to go out in our backyard to see if we could get a better look. By the time we got outside, the object had moved farther away from us, so we couldn't make out it's shape anymore with binoculars-but it was still in the same position in the sky-it just seemed to be farther up or away. We continued to look at this object for about 10 more minutes and observed that it continued to move farther and farther away in the sky, so all that could really be seen was the white light. The total time we watched this object was about 20 to 25 minutes. It was in the sky at a northeast position seemingly above Mt Timpanogos. Since that first sighting, we have seen the object at least 4 or 5 more nights, in the same location, at the same time of night. We are average white homeowers, taxpaying, law abiding citizens who up to this experience did not believe in UFOs.
