Location: Salt Lake City, UT
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 4-5 minutes
Black,Triangular shaped object appears in SLC.

My wife and I had been walking at the local high school track. I suffer from a back problem, so I decided to rest on the bleachers in the football stadium while she continued. As I lay on my back looking at the stars, a large black triangular shape traveled noiselessly across the sky. It move from N.W to S.E. The first thing that called my attention to it was that my view stars were being blocked as it moved across the sky. I couldn't begin to guess how high it was, unless I knew it's actual size. We live in the approach path of S.L International, and it seemed nearly as low as a typical 757 on approach 7 miles out. It was definitely larger than a passenger jet by 4 or 5 times (I would guess).

I saw no lights on the object, and as I said there was no noise associated with it. It was obviously black or another dark color. By the time I could get my wife's attention it was too far south of us to see.

I waited this long to report for the obvious reasons. Many skeptical people try to get you to rationalize the experience.
