Location: West Valley, UT
Shape: Oval
Duration:2 minutes
Large craft approached from the east over West Valley City, then turned north and flew out of sight.

Sitting in back yard facing east, looking toward the backside of our home. Our home is in the flight path for the Salt Lake International Airport. As I looked over the top of our house, I saw what at first I thought was a large jet, but it was approaching from the wrong direction (from the east). It appeared to have 3 large, bright white lights, and one red light on the top. None of the lights were blinking. At some point during this experience, I realized I was looking at an extremely large craft.

I called to my wife and asked her to bring me my camera while I continued to observe. It was coming closer, but was still quite high, obviously I don’t know the size of the craft, but I would guess it was at 8000 to 10,000 feet altitude.

My wife called out that she could not find the camera (I was preparing to go on a trip the next day and had put it in a bag) so I started toward the house. At that point I could tell the craft was slowing down. As I walked toward our deck I nearly lost my balance and felt like I was becoming quite dizzy. I grabbed onto the handrail of the deck and looked back up and the craft was continuing to slow, then it made an approximately 90 degree turn to a northly direction and began to increase its altitude and speed. A cloud started to form around it as it climbed. I watched until it was completely out of my sight.
