|Reflective object hanging in the sky over St. George, Utah
There was not a cloud in the sky. An object caught my eye. The object was too high to see details. Sunlight reflected off the object. The object was north of us (me and my 14-year old son). We had seen an object 'hanging' in the sky several weeks ago, and wondered whether this was the same or similar object. It looked similar. We watched this object for a couple of minutes, waiting to see if it was perhaps a small plane that was far off and heading toward us. There were no contrails around the object. And no clouds whatsoever. We watched it for a couple of minutes, then I said, "Let's note the time." It was 13:57 Mountain Daylight Time. The object moved slowly toward the south. We looked at about 45 degrees to the horizon to first see it. In approximately ten minutes it had moved so that we were looking at about 85 degrees, not quite straight up. Watching the object was easier with polarized sun glasses. Without the polarized sun glasses, the object was hard to see. I told my son to go to the car to get the other sunglasses. When he came back, the object was closely to straight overhead, and I said, "I've lost it." My son said, "I see it." I asked, "Where?" He said, "There", but he was pointing to the 45-degree location. It had to be a second object in about the same spot as we had first seen the first object. Unless the first object zipped back down. I think there were two objects. We watched that object for a number of minutes. It was just hanging there. I said, "What would happen if I tried to contact them?" I stepped out into the open and waved at the object. I waved with both hands scissoring over my head. The object immediately faded from sight. We started walking back to the car. We noted the time. It was 14:17.
