Duration:3-4 minutes
Unknown bright light / ufo seen over salt lake valley

Noticed a bright light very high in the sky starting above great salt lake moving east/southeast (correction from previous saying northeast) at a high rate of speed for as high as it was. I thought it was a plane or possibly the ISS until watching it I noticed slight abrupt changes in the direction it was heading. As it was approaching the east bench of the salt lake valley it seemed to gain altitude and disappear very unusually and quickly unlike and aircraft I've ever seen in the area. I t seemed to go from going straight east to straight up and disappearing
