Duration:2:00 min.
Triangle shaped UFO seen over the Salt Lake Valley.

On a very clear evening, we were out running. I was ahead of my wife and son. As I stopped to let them catch up (and catch my breath), I gazed up into the the sky above us, and to my surprise there was a very large black. triangle shaped object. It made no noise, and had no lights.

The reason it caught my attention was it was blocking out so many stars.

We live in an area that is in the flight path to the SLC International Airport, and we are used to constant air traffic overhead. This object had to be larger than any passenger plane I have seen.

By now my wife and son were watching it too. It moved from NW to SE over the valley. We are fortunate to live just outside all of the city lights, otherwise I do not believe we would have seen it.

Also, It was impossible to judge height or speed.

It took approx. 2-3 min to move across the 30 mile distance of the Salt Lake Valley.
