Posted: 12/7/2006
Location: Elmo, UT
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 10 Seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
A long bright white cigar shaped object rose from the desert and shot off into the western sky

We were looking outside to the south when a cigar shaped object rose straight up out of the desert into the sky, hoovered momentarilly and in an arched pattern disappeared into the western sky leaving what appeared to be a trail of light that disappeared nearly as fast as the object. It was a very bright white, long object. The sky was black at the time. Here in this part of the state there are relatively no mountains in the background. In fact, on any given day the desert can be seen clearly without any obstructions from trees or buildings. We live near a very small community so there were no buildings obstructing the sighting.
