On or about October1997 at approximately 12 a.m. in the morning we were hunting in an area that we always go it's in the town of ophir we were on top of the mountain the property is the old mercur mine there were other hunters on top of the mountain we could hear them we couldn't see them above our heads there appeared a brilliant white round light that was about the size of a basketball looking West you can see dugway proving grounds. Looking into the sky from the southwest an object that look like a star was moving at a high speed towards the area we were at the same time look into the northwest another object that look like a star was moving at high speed towards the location where we were at all so as they approached they grew larger and size to the point that they merged with the round object that was above us to which they became the one light above our heads. As we were watching the one light split into 3 basketball size round lights forming a perfect! triangle as the object that was approaching from the northwest joined the basketball shaped light 2R North in the sky was the big Dipper as it passed our line of sight of the big Dipper the sky appeared to Warp, resembling heat coming off of hot surface, you could see the heat waves coming off of it. When the light divided into a perfect triangle from our viewpoint they looked about the size of a basketball. The triangle object then begin to rise up in the air in perfect formation, it moved straight up in the air then moved above our heads in the triangle position. So it was over had of us looking straight up at the triangle shape it made two or three maneuvers tilting to the left then to the right then returning back to its original position making it appear to be a triangle straight in front of us. As this was going on the other people that were up on the mountain we're shouting out"UFO'S"...etc. the the round balls of light form in the triangle then moved into! one basketball size brilliant white light then ascended into ! the sky starting out gradual and then shooting straight up out of sight it took less than a second and it was gone. We have gone to ophir hunting for yours it's a family tradition we also go up there to look out over dugway proving grounds and looking for activity over the years. We have seen many objects moving at high speeds in that area since 1997. I am seeking out the individuals that were there at that timeline who also witness event it was truly the most amazing life changing experience I've ever had. I validate that there is activity going on at dugway. Thank you
