Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A flash in the sky around Salt Lake City

My wife and I were outside smoking and we were looking at constellations ( Orions Belt)and we saw what we thought was a satellite crossing the sky. But this was different from any satellite we had seen. It went across the sky but every 30 seconds it would go from very dim in to really bright. Neither one of us had ever seen a satellite flash like that. It seemed as if it was spinning slowly with one light on one side. It also seemed to be moving at a very high rate of speed, moving higher in the sky as it seemed to encircle half of the salt lake valley.
