Location: Clearfield, UT
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10-15 seconds
Low flying, Silent, triangular with four lights, One steady light on each rounded corner and one swirling light in the center.

I was laying out on the hood of my friends truck looking up at the night sky like I usually do when out of the corner of my eye I saw what I thought was a low flying plane from the base. As it got closer I realized that it was not a plane. I didn't know what it was but I couldn't take my eyes off of it. It flew about two to three hundred yards off the ground and it didn't make any noise at all. It was kind of a triangle shape with rounded corners and on each corner it had a yellowish white light. In the center there was a slightly bigger light that seemed to swirl, the reason I say it swirled is because it had a curved line that went from the center point out to the rim and it kept going around the rim. I stood up on my friends hood and watched it as it flew west over the lake and behind Antelope Island. I only told a few people what I saw because I wasn't sure who would believe me but one of the people I did tell was my wife who I met and married 1998. In about Late May to early June of 1999 her and I were in my grandmas back yard laying down and talking about the stars and which one was ours when out of nowhere the same exact odbject appeared above us flying in a southward direction. It made no sound and flew about the same height. It scared the heck out of my wife cause she used to be in the Air Force and had never seen anything like it. Niether one of us is sure what it was or where it came from but we do know that it was something extraordinary. To this day we still sit out at night hoping that we will get to see it again.
