Strange light sits above mountain, and disappears

It was late at night in Provo, Utah. I was traveling in the passenger seat of my cousin’s car on the way back to my other relatives house.

It was a relatively clear night out and there were plenty of stars to be seen.

On one side of the road was the Provo Valley, and on the other side the mountains.

I could see one star in particular which sat relatively right above one of the highest mountain peaks.

It shined very brightly. I figured it was an airplane or helicopter moving towards us from over the mountain. It did not move however.

As I sat watching, the star appeared to get brighter but still it did not move.

Suddenly, almost as if “it” knew I was watching, the light did almost a complete 180 degree turn and disappeared behind the mountain. It executed this move so quickly that I almost didn’t see it happen.

I am absolutely positive it was something not of this world.
