Flexible mass drops shimmering peices in utahs little cottonwood canyon

My friends and I were camping pretty deep into little cottonwood canyon. When we were laying down we thought we saw a bluish flash a ways behind us off to the east. We didn't hear any sound correlating to the flash but it seemed close enough that we should have known what caused it.

So we got up to take a look in that direction. We didn't have to go very far, just to a clearing. There was a dark mass floating in the air. It's shape was indistinguishable. It was more or less flat and it seemed round but its entire mass did not move in unison. It sort of rippled but not in any coherent pattern (thus not really like a ripple but similar.)

On the bottom surface that we could see, there was a constant activity of blue flashes (though not very bright)freckled across the object. We all noticed the air felt very cold and moist and like static.

Finally some pieces fell off the object. They sprinkled off and shimmered as they fell to the ground. Then the object left slowly. It was hard to tell that it was moving. It got more more distant but the actual movement seemed imperceptable.
