My father and I were driving to Salt Lake City in our truck,[Big Rig], when we seen a light in the eastern sky. At frist I thought that it was mercery, but then it changed color from a bright white to a bright orange. It did,nt seem to be moving, but that is hard to determen in a moving truck. I tryed to tell my self that maybe a cloud or dust had blown between us and it to cause the color change, but the stars behind it did not change color. We had been looking at it for about ten min. when it change back to white, that is when we notice that a jet plaine apaired to be approching it. When the jet got close the object turned orange again and a beam of light from the object,[like a spotlight], lit-up the jet. The jet turned very fast and looked like it was circling around. The object then moved down and got very large has if it were getting close, and then shot out of view to the south. I have seen strange thangs in the sky before, but nothang like this!
