I realize that it has been 30 years since our sighting (my wife and I)but. hopefully it will be of use to you... we drove to Provo canyon on our way to Provo from Orem (800 North) as we turned south from the canyon intersection we proceeded down the road for about 500 yards when the U.F.O. flew towards us as if it were an approaching vehicle about 100 feet in the air. the U.F.O. was approximately 50 feet in diameter and was 15 feet tall, gray in color, with lights of differing color around the exterior, it rotated slightly as it "flew" at a speed of maybe 30 miles per hour. As the "craft" came directly over our vehicle i was shocked to find that it gave off very little noise, just a pleasant humming sound. There were two vehicle coming to a stop on the opposite side of the road so, i know there were other witnesses to the sighting. I thought of stopping also to observe but, shortly after as i looked up and out of my window, the craft flew straight up and out of sight in the blink of an eye, again, without noise as you would expect.
