Shape: Other
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Odd yellow light came closer and appeared to have a non-plane type movement, pulsed or had lights rotating around it.

I was driving 10 miles west of Cedar City, UT at 7:05 in the evening. Headed west and saw peculiar light in the SW sky. Watched it, because it didn't look like a plane or planet. Developed a tail and thought it was a meteor. But it didn't burn out, it kept going and getting closer.

As it became closer (heading towards east s/e) the tail was lights that revolved around the object or maybe the object seemed to "pulse". The lights were multicolored and the object would disappear for periods. 5-10 seconds at a time. Appeared to be beneath clouds, as I originally thought it might be going behind clouds.

Pulled over and shut off truck to get better look. After disappearing and then reappearing 3-4 times it disappeared for good. It was difficult to follow optically for some reason. Like it was shifting or out of focus.

After I got home I could see no sign of it but another plane was moving in the same direction. Couldn't tell what type of plane that was.
