Duration:2 minutes
A object presenting characteristics that are not consistent with the SpaceX satellite formation.

It was 10:20 at night going down a little cottonwood canyon on a bicycle in Sandy Utah. We were in the area behind Albion Middle School that's forested on a good view. We looked up and were immediately taken back by what appeared to both of us "a large object" to be a very large skinny object. I quoted after that that thing had to be a mile or too long. I can't remember now because the moment has passed at the time however I was very convinced that there was an object in the sky between 2500 and 20,000 ft in the air. The object went across the sky very quickly appearing to be thousands of miles an hour consistent with the SpaceX satellite. Although after it went overhead it vanished within 2 seconds every single light just absolutely disappeared. I find that strange because SpaceX satellites I imagine wouldn't just vanish and you can clearly see them vanishing at the last second or two of the video. Within probably 5 seconds of the video ending The! video is exactly 1 minute long because that's the maximum Snapchat limit. In the video footage the biggest inconsistency with anything rational is at the 8 second mark there is a large flash that would have to be huge if it was in space right next to this formation. The odds of an object re-entering the atmosphere and looking like the way it does on film seems very small. So I checked for potential rational explanations as to what I have seen and filmed and they are saying that there was SpaceX satellites over salt lake City around the time we saw it. I am basically looking for a rational explanation to what that light is at the 8 second mark. Even though I may or may not have seen something more. I uploaded the video to YouTube because I didn't know where else to put it So there it is thank you for your time please look at what I'm looking at and see if you can explain it.
