Sighting Was in Northern Utah 23 Miles South of Evanston, Wyoming.

Date of Sighting: September 5, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10:30 to 11:30 PM MDT
Location of Sighting: 23 Miles South of Evanston, Wyoming (Sighting Was Actually in Northern Utah)

Description: We were 23 miles from Evanston, wyoming on the Mirror Lake Highway at a summer home in wild river ranches. We were having a cook out on the back deck when my sister in law saw a bright flash in the sky enough to disrupt our conversation so we all started looking up. Then we all started seeing the same thing like a strobe light a real quick flash. Ten to twenty seconds later again straight up above our heads we saw the same flash. The funny thing is as soon as we saw a satellite they would appear, but in the same quadrant. Then an airliner went over and I said now we all know its not an airliner with a flashing green and red light. I kept watching the plane and then that same flash was right behind it. This flash was in another part of the sky not straight up like we all observed. To top it all off there was a full moon out so the sky was bright from the moon. The shape of the flashes appeared to be jagged edges not a circle at all. They were like reflections of broken glass or a mirror. Of all the times I have laid awake all night sleeping under the stars I have never witnessed any thing like it.

Note: A check of satellite charts show that no scheduled satellites were over the area at the time of the sighting. The sighting does sound like it could have been an iridium flare satellite, but this cannot be verified.
