Location: Ogden, UT
Shape: Formation
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Formation of bright non-flashing lights hovering; too large to be a plane.

As I was coming down 4600 towards Harrison Boulevard, I saw a vertical row of 3 large white lights flanked by 2 or 3 smaller lights. When I saw it, my heart almost stopped because I immediately thought a commercial plane was flying too low.

It wasn't until I slowed my car down at the corner of 4600 and Taylor Ave that I saw no movement with the lights and that it wasn't at all close, it was just the size of the lights that had made it appear low flying. They weren't flashing, but I immediately assumed it was an airplane or a jet from Hill Air Force Base, until I processed how incredibly large of a plane it would have to be and that it wasn't moving at all.

I turned and continued driving a block north before deciding that even if this was a plane, it wasn't one I had ever seen before and wanted a closer look so I turned back down to Harrison and it was completely gone.
