White Floating object in Utah County

It was a clear day. No clouds. I was looking East out of a high rise building. I saw a white object moving in front of a mountain range. It was the size of a small plane or helicopter. The object went up above the mountain and hovered in place. I had two co workers look to see if they could see it. We decided it was a balloon. The only problem was it was not moving. Then it veered off the the right and then went back to it's original position. I continued to watch. The object disappeared then reappeared in the same spot. Eventually it decended on the back side of the mountain and we couldn't see it any more. This is the second time we have seen a similar type object. A few months ago a white object came down a canyon then cased the mountain in a v pattern. It went up the next canyon then back down. It stared floating in a straight line and disappeared on the front side of the mountain. Again, both of the occurances were in the afternoon.
