Location: Utah/Idaho border north of Tremonton Utah, UT
Shape: Disk
Duration:15 minutes
I saw a six story high, one block long flying saucer sitting on the Utah/Idaho border that silently disappeared when my car approached.

In April 1989 right after midnight I was driving alone in my car south on the road between Pocatello, Idaho, and Tremonton, Utah. I was on a stretch of land where I could only see lights of a couple of farm houses far off to the west of the road. Just before the Idaho/Utah border I noticed some pulsating lights that were red, yellow, green, blue. I thought it was a very large lighted road sign. I have driven that road many times before and thought it strange that I had never seen a road sign along that road before. I thought, "What is a lighted road sign doing out here in the middle of nowhere?" I was to later realize that the lights were right on the Utah - Idaho border.

As I got about a block away suddenly the pulsating lights started to blend into each other and a very large black disk shaped object slowly rose up. It made no sound whatsoever. It was just after midnight and the sky was filled with stars. I could see the disk shaped object only becau! se it covered the stars. It was about 6 stories high and a block long with these lights now blending into each other around the center of the saucer shaped disk. It hovered above me in the air for only a few minutes, and then suddenly went straight east (not upward, but sideways) and disappeared behind the range of mountains to the east. I was so shocked I stopped the car along the side of the road and sat there for I don't know how long. I was trying to figure out what I had just witnessed. Then what appeared to me to be a few min. later, a couple of cars passed me along the road. I became frightened that the object might come back, so I turned on the engine and drove to my home in Orem, Utah. I arrived home around 3 am from what should have been a 2 or 2 1/2 hour drive, so I may have lost some time inbetween. I did not know who to report the incident to so I called the Preston Idaho police department to find out if there were any other reports of UFOs in the area. The wom! an on the line said there were none. So I wrote a letter to th! at depar tment outlining the incident just so it could be officially reported to someone. Later I noticed that my bellybutton was reeking a small amount of pus, as was my right ear. The infections cleared up in a couple of weeks.

About 20 years later I went back to the area and looked at the field of sagebrush where the object had sat. I noticed three circles where the sage brush had not grown. As I think back on the incident I feel it was an object being tested by our military, or why else would it be sitting right on the Utah/Idaho border? A saucer from outer space would have no need to sit on an unmarked state border. I have told only my close family members about the incident. I later authored a book about Satanic Ritual Abuse (Twenty Two Faces: Inside the Extraordinary Life of Jenny Hill and Her Twenty Two Multiple Personalities) and do not want to have my name associated with the incident as it would invite ridicule associated to my name. I wish to remain anonymous. I have had! no nightmares about the incident, nor any memory of abduction. I am guessing at the year and month of the encounter and will have to re-check my files (which are locked away right now) for my original report of the incident to verify the date.
