Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour
Bright light bouncing around the wess salt lake valley sky.

I am a constant sky watcher, if I could get paid to do it... I'd be rich! I currently work in Planning and Development. My roommate is an industrial fire fighter and always makes fun of me being so adamant about some of the strange stars I see.

Last night we were out in our back yard and I happened to notice a really bright star, brighter than all the rest. I stood there watching it for about 3 minutes when I noticed it was moving, almost bouncing side to side and disappeared at one point. It came back and I ran inside to get my camera, but without a tripod I couldnt get a steady picture or video of it. I could just tell that the brightness of the light was something inside this atmosphere. It looked soo close. I couldn't make out a shape, but it easily blended into the sky as another star. It looked like it could have been hovering over Tooele or Magna. I have a few videos that are not really steady.
