Location: Salt Lake City, UT
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I was heading west on 4500 South 2300 East at approximately 7:30 a.m., noticed an object hovering in the sky to the west, I assumed was a helicopter. The sky was dark and a little cloudy at that time so the orange was noticeable in the distance. I kept seeing it as I headed west (going to State Street) and wondered why it wasn't moving at all if it was indeed a helicopter. I started to constantly watch it, while keeping an eye on traffic. It did not move, it was hovering in place. I don't know what shape the object was but 2 distinct orange lights, not blinking, just constant. I looked away for about 10 seconds as my view was blocked suddenly. When I looked again it was gone. I searched the sky for it and couldn't see it anywhere. There were other cars on the road. Not sure if any of them noticed this or not.
