Young woman watching television while sitting on beanbag in bedroom observed a very bright green cylinder go streaking across the sky and disappear behind Hogsback Mountain. It seemed to be luminous green from within, and it lit up the whole area. At first, she thought it might have landed, but she could not be sure--it just went behind the mountain.

Itappeared that "stuff was coming out the back." It illuminated the entire area with green light.

the sighting was during the David Letterman program. A taxi driver had just left the stage, and Bill Cosby was about to come on.

She called the police, who reported that two pilots in the area had reported a green flash. Also, two people in Brigham City had reported apparently the same event. She called the Utah State University the next day, but they said they didn't have anything flying that night.

Her daughter's birthday was the next day.

She just saw a brief flash. It scared her, and she called her friend.

No sound was evident, but she was inside her house with the television on.

Salt Lake City FAA (Cedar City Facility--(800) 992-7433) at first said they didn't have our telephone hotline number, but then they gave her our number.

I got her permission to give her name to Zack Van Eyck. I recommended that she send a letter to the Editor of her local paper.

I asked her for a report, map, and an illustration. She said she alread had an illustration done.
