A Utah couple near Highland report watching and photographing "small orange triangles and large, bright, white oval objects" in the sky, according to recent testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The couple spotted the objects and stopped their car to observe better.
"We both got out of the car and observed three, orange objects that at first looked like an orb, but as they flew closer to us, that were shaped like a small triangle, no larger than five feet in diameter," the reporting witness stated.
The objects appeared to be coming from the north and moving south at different altitudes ranging from 100 to 500 feet off of the ground. Then they saw more objects approaching.
"As we turned to get back in the car we saw two very bright lights, in a South-South East direction. They were further off, more than a mile."
The couple then drove to a nearby park for a better view.
"When we got out of the car there we took a few more pictures of them. They were both stationary for more than two minutes, then one began to move around, then moved away from the stationary one toward the north. They were oval and a very bright, white light."
They then drove to their own neighborhood which is at a higher elevation.
"We went to our neighbor's home and told them about it. They wanted to see them, so both of our families got in our cars and drove over to the neighboring golf course to see them. They were still there."
The witness summarized the events.
"In all we saw four bright, white objects, moving around a stationary object that was on the top of the mountain on the other side of the valley. We observed them for over 15 minutes, taking a two-minute video as well. During that time we could see airplanes coming into the SLC airport, and these lights were much brighter than them, larger, and made no noise. Within five minutes after leaving the gold course we heard two helicopters fly by; very unusual at night here, especially Christmas Eve night."
The witness followed-up on the observation.
"I went back tonight to confirm that the stationary light is in fact something on the top of the mountain over Saratoga Springs, though we do not know why the objects were flying around it. The still picture taken in Highland gives a very clear observation of their shape. And the video shows their movement, the extreme brightness when they would first appear, and the random flashes, as well as the methodical less bright flashing."
