Silvery Object Spotted over Salt Lake City during predicted UFO Fly-Over

an object that showed up while out doing the fly-by skywatch today. at the location of around Red Butte Gardens, at around 2:13pm for four minutes and then again at 2:19pm to 2:33pm. going east-south/east over the foot hills, really slowly till it went over the mountain towards Emigration Canyon. I was using my Canon EOS Elan II with a 500mm lens at f~ 5.6,I got about 10-12 pictures. a couple with object by the moon. Shiny silvery object, estimated size: 20 feet in diameter. no fantastic moves or anything, just slow hover-like sound. I was quite surprised! and amazed. I didn't expect anything to show up, but I'm glad I went and watched. and had my camera ready.

((NUFORC Note: We have requested of the witness that he forward copies of the photos, but we have not heard back from him, yet. We note that someone, unknown to NUFORC, had made a public "prediction" that UFO's would make themselves visible above the Olympic Games in Utah. So far, this report is the only one NUFORC has received that would provide any credence to the "psychic's" prognostication. PD))
