Dear Sir/Madam: At 1:45 this morning I observed a star-like object high in the sky above Salt Lake City, UT. It was moving in ways not within the capability of any aircraft of which I'm aware. It was making 90 deg. turns, very tight circles, and sometimes came to a complete stop then sped half-way the length of the Salt Lake valley in a couple of secs. I watched it for approximately 15 mins.

At 20:45 I observed the same object again over the valley. This time it spent most of the 30 mins I saw it over the Salt Lake Intl Airport. On both occasions today the object looked star-like most of the time, but then it would turn a red color still faint and star-like.

I'm a retired Chem. Eng. I worked for Hercules Aerospace for 15 yrs in the Design and Analysis Dept. of Product Engineering. In the Army I served in Vietnam with the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile). I'm very familiar with fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft.

Sincerely, ((name deleted))
