Sighting Reports 2007

Man Sees Blue Object Ascend Rapidly & Streak Eastward

Date of Sighting: June 7, 2007
Time of Sighting: 10 PM MDT
Date Sighting Reported: June 7, 2007
Duration of Sighting: 10 Seconds
Location of Sighting: West Side of Salt Lake Valley
Latitude: 40.8 Degrees North (Airport)
Longitude: 111.9 Degrees West (Airport)
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Official Weather Report at Salt Lake City Airport Showed Skies to be Partly Cloudy With Cloud Bases at 15,000 Feet. The Witness Stated That Skies Were Clear at the Time of Sighting. (This difference is likely due to different weather conditions at the witness's location and the airport.)

Description (In Witness's Own Words): Last night I got off of work at 10:00 pm. I was driving home when I looked up and to the West side of the Salt lake valley. I saw a blue light that looked as if it was in the mountains. The blue light then started to move upward and shoot across the sky to the east. It was moving at an amazing rate of speed. It looked as if it was banking around. It seemed as if when it was turning the blue light would either turn off or it was on the side of the aircraft that I could no longer see. This aircraft had no flashing lights of any kind. Just a light blue steady light. When it got out into the distance I thought I could make out some type of shape, but I am unsure. I just wanted to report this to someone just in case there were others who saw the same thing. Who ever gets this thank you for you time. I've never reported any type of strange ocurance like this before.

Second Report by Witness: The witness stated that the light left no trail, that skies were clear, and that the sighting lasted about 10 seconds. This information was provided in response to my questions.

Investigator's Notes: Given the description I can't explain what the witness saw. Ball lightning or other electrical phenomena are an unlikely explanation because no thunderstorms were in the area at the time of the sighting. (Rain had occurred earlier in the day.)
