Location: Layton, UT
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Black triangle shaped object, red and blue strobe-lit, two and-a-half miles east of HAFB, hovering at an altitude of 150-200 ft.

The object was first observed as brilliant flashing of red and blue strobe lights above a viaduct at the hill crest, two-and-a-half miles east of Hill Air Force Base. The object was visible through the windshield of my car as I approached the crest of the hill from the north on Highway 89. When I drove under the viaduct I slowed my automobile to about 20 mph, and was directly underneath the apparently hovering object. This object appeared to have a similar size to a that of a small conventional aircraft. The object seemed to have an altitude of about 150-200 feet. As I looked at the hovering, strobe-lit object from out the window of my moving vehicle, it appeared to have a solid black body in the shape of an equilateral triangle. As I pulled to the side of the road and brought my automobile around to face the object, it began to move north. Its pace was slightly faster than that of the northbound traffic below it, on Highway 89. Soon it was out of range as it continued on a northern course.
