Location: Salt Lake City, UT
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
5 large balls of light in a diagonal line, not moving in the sky, disappeared one by one.

Around 9pm MST I was lying in bed watching TV when an extremely bright light entered the room through the crack in my curtains. Mind you my lights are off with a bright TV blaring in my face. This light was bright enough to catch my attention. I went to the window and saw 5 large balls of light in the sky, extremely bright, over the Oquirrh Mountains. They had an orange/red color, at times appearing white in a diagonal line.

Further up in the sky more towards the North I could see Uranus or Venus according to my star locator, I don’t know which one as they are showing side by side on the app and I live in the city so only one is visible. But the planet has been extremely bright the past few nights, these 5 lights were even brighter and slightly larger in size.

It’s common for planes to be seen flying North to South and South to North in this area but these lights were coming from the West and were much brighter than any planes I have seen in the sky. They also weren’t moving or blinking.

It started with 5 lights in a diagonal line, then the one to the far right disappeared leaving 4 lights. Then the next one to the far right faded out leaving 3 lights. These 3 lights stayed for a longer amount of time, again not moving, until all 3 at once faded away.
