Description: Dear Mr. Puckett: You were recently on the local news for the work you do for UFOs Northwest. After doing more research on you, I have decided to send you some pictures that I hope you can explain. As you can see in the pictures, there are 3 lights. My girlfriend and I were en-route to Beaverton, Oregon from Salt Lake City, Utah from a friend's wedding when we saw the lights on the freeway just outside Salt Lake City. Everyone that was driving on the freeway on that night also saw the lights I am sure. When we arrived to my paren'ts home in Beaverton the following morning I immediately searched the news sites in Utah to see if they were any reported sightings the previous night. There was not. I took the pictures with the camera sticking out of the side window of the car so that the dirty windshield would not interfere with the pictures. The lights remained stationary and did not blink which is why I think they are atmospheric phenomena instead of an aircraft, whether it be terrestrial or extraterrestrial origin. I am hoping that you can come up with an answer that accounts for the presence of these lights. I won't call them UFOs because I could not tell at the time whether they were even aircraft or not so I will just call them unidentified light sources for now. If you look at the EXIF data, that will tell you that the pictures were taken with a Canon PowerShot A95 on 7/2/2005 at 7:08:44 AM. The time is incorrect. It was actually taken at 7:08:44 PM as I had the camera on the wrong time setting. Just to clarify, the date is correct, as this was 3 years ago, but the time is actually PM, not AM. I have copied my dad and grandpa's email as I'm sure they would be interested in what you have to say.

Comments: I am not sure of the identity of these lights. I believe that they are real objects reflecting sunlight. I don't believe that the objects are regular aircraft, clouds, birds, balloons, etc. It appears that the witness took the photo to the east because the Sun was still up at the time of the photos.
