Location: Riverdale, UT
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 10+ minutes
White sphere seen by 4 people.

At approximately 16:00 hours today, or a bit after, I was walking through the lot where I work, and, as I am accustomed to doing, I looked skyward, and noticed a round white sphere in the sky! At first, I thought it might be a balloon, but it seemed to be just a bit too large for that! I say that, because, though it had some distance to it away from me, I would say it was maybe about the size of a popcorn kernel held about a foot from my face!

I watched it for some time, and also got the attention of someone I work with, to view it as well! Came to find out, 2 others I work with, had already seen it! I stated previously that I thought it might be a balloon, but, after watching it for a few minutes, I watched as it turned to the left, and it had length to it!

So, at first I thought it to be spherical, but that observation has changed now, to be close to cigar or cylindrical in shape! Distance at that time, would be approximately 2 miles distant, and about 1500-2700 in elevation from my location! It was moving at a slow rate of speed, but increasing in elevation.

There were high thin clouds in the area, at about 4-6000 feet above! I watched it for a while, but was busy with other things, though I tried to keep sight of it as much as I could! My vision is okay, but one witness stated that he has 20/15 vision, and he knows that it was not a balloon! And he saw it long before I had! Hill AFB is close by, to the south! I wonder if they saw it on radar!!

I have witnessed things in this area before, and have made reports! And I know others who have seen things as well! One of the witnesses to this event, stated that he sees objects quite often in the area! One thing of note, as I was watching this...object, it did make a sudden move, and seemed to increase in elevation of I would say, a couple of hundred feet, in just a few seconds!
