stationary red and blue flashing lights in eastern Salt Lake City sky

On Wednesday at approximately 2:20 a.m. in the eastern sky above the mountains in Salt Lake City we sighted an object with bright red, blue, and other colors flashing continuously. The object stayed stationary in the sky and the lights continued to flash. The moon rising from behind the mountains was approximately a quarter moon and was very bright, eventually diminishing the otherwise bright red blue and other colors of the object. The sighting occurred on Wednesday August 8, 2007 and during the sighting a plane was sighted flying in the direction of the objects from the northern sky, which could have been from a local northern Air Force facility.
