UFO over Northern Utah/Hill Air Force Base

Had an interesting experience yesterday (06/29/03) between 5:00p -- 6:00p. We were having a family gathering in our backyard in Roy, Utah and my Son-in-Law pointed out an object in the sky. It was pretty high, I assume because, with the naked eye, it was about the size of a pencil eraser. The rest of the family search the sky a spotted the object.

Watching it, it looked like it was heading toward the ground, because it looked like it was getting larger. Then it stopped and hung there for about 5 minutes. Then the object slowly began moving North-Northeast. I looked away and my son exclaimed "Hey! it just divided in two." So I looked up again and I spotted the two objects. The second just accelerated really fast and flew off in a South-Southwesterly direction and disappeared behind our trees.

We continued watching the first object, then suddenly the second returned with equal velocity flying in the North-Northeasterly direction catching up to the first. The first still traveling slowly North-Northeasterly.

The second object then changed direction and flew off South-Southeasterly at a high rate of speed then disappeared. I looked back to the first object and watched it for a few more minutes then it, too, disappeared.

The objects appeared round or oval, I thought they may have had wings but I cannot be sure. It was either white or silver-reflecting-sunlight. The display lasted about a half-hour, 45 minutes.

There were three of us watching the whole time, and four other watched for a few minutes
