Location: St. George, UT
Shape: Circle
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I had gone outside to smoke a cigarette in my backyard. When I began to sit down in my chair, I had looked up into the sky and saw a circular object, hovering above my head. It had 6 yellowish white lights (at least they appeared to be lights, could have been Windows, because they were more dim than the center light) around the outer body of the object, and a light in the center of the object. Only the center light was illuminated brighter and blinked like a slow beat. It hovered above my head about 300ft, for about 2 or so minutes. The object did not appear to make any noise, but I could feel like a low frequency vibration or energy in the air.

It then proceeded to head North into the sky, about a mile away. I ran inside to get my girlfriend to see, and it was about 20 miles away, maybe hovering over the city of Hurricane. It remained there for about 5 or so mins. We tried to get a picture and a video, but our cell phone camera was not good enough to pick it up. At that time it moved upward into the northern sky and disappeared.

We called her local police department in St. George, Utah. They had no other reports a sighting.

They gave us a website that had nothing to do with UFOs. and 702.798.1700 for national institute for discovery science. So we googled that, and found that it is now a closed organization.

This was an awesome experience, and it was not like any other 747 or military vehicle that we see flying from Las Vegas to Clearfield, Utah.

((NUFORC Note: NIDS stopped taking UFO reports years ago. PD))
