A friend and I were camping west of the Bonneville salt flats.we were located 8 miles west in the mountains above Bonneville. We had been looking for meteors and satellites. were very successful in finding meteors and satellites. Just before bedtime we looked up into the sky at 10:30 in the evening and discovered a flashing object very high up in a very clear night Sky. The direction from us was the North West. Prior to the discovery we had been following satellites jet airliners and meteors. I saw an airliner going by and the object appeared to be much higher then the airliner, And lower than satellites. The object flashed 1,2,3 stop 1,2,3 stop continuously I watched it from 1030 to 12 midnight I went to bed woke up at 2 am and it was still up there Flashing, and not moving,It never moveed from its spot. I watched it for another 10 or 15 minutes and went to bed. We both were watching with a pair of binoculars. Without the binoculars the object was very! faint. The color of the Flash was like a white strobe light.8-8-20
