Red/Orange Lights Observed Over Sandy Salt Lake City Utah

Date:  January 22, 2012
Time:  7:00 p.m.
I seen the same thing, but fewer lights (about 7) in Salt Lake City, Utah (Sandy) on January 22nd. at 7:00 p.m. Four hovered then disappeared then 3 more flew to the same spot (horizontally) and disappeared as well.
We pulled over thinking they were falling stars or something. This happened in a matter of 10 minutes.
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: sighting@telus.net with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.

  1. (8:45pm, 1/25)From our Sugarhouse front porch, looking northward toward the Aves, we saw 5 or 6 flickering, orange lights floating westbound toward town. They sort of looked like those Japanese lanterns that people launch into the sky, by the way they were flickering. Only these were much larger/brighter. Strangely, as each one floated behind the trees in the foreground, they weren't reappearing. I've never seen anything like it!

  2. I saw a similar event tonight. From my house in the Avenues, looking west, I saw 3 orange lights in the sky, hovering up and down and horizontally. The lights descended very low and then rose up and slowly extinguished, still in my field of vision. Not helicopter lights, because they were a constant orange glow, too bright, no flashing, and unusual movement...

  3. I just saw one rise up pretty quickly from the middle of the city today around 8 pm. It got pretty high then just slowly disappeared. Never seen a helicopter behave like that before. as you said very strange. Kind of looked like a Chinese lantern but was much larger and i think faster. Going crazy trying to find out what it was

  4. Last night at 9:30 we saw about 20 red and orange lights rise from the area just south of Bell Canyon in Sandy, Utah. We were less than 2 miles away from the mountain on 1300 East and 10600 South looking east to the mountains. At first it looked like a bunch of fires on the mountain but we could see them quickly rise. They looked like the Chinese lantern example that someone else talked about. They did not create sound that we could here. Certainly helicopters would have made noise. Soon they were all in the sky. The lights faded in the sky one by one and we watched until the last red light was gone. The entire episode lasted about 5 minutes.

  5. Near Sugar house looking eastward from my window, on two or three seperate nights, I saw 2 red glowing "fire balls" as I would describe them. They stood still for awhile, then one stood still while the other flew north east. Both acted eratically and suddenly moved extremely fast at times, other times they stood still. I tried to pull out my phone to film it, but it was two dark. Since I have no camera, when they appear sometimes I just stand and watch them. They come and go randomly.

  6. I saw two tonight. The closest explanation is like a Chinese lantern as far as what they might look like, but without the slow steady movement or gradual fading. After hovering in place, one rose very rapidly and disappeared while the other stayed in place. I started driving at that point and lost track. When I got home a few minutes later, they were gone. Unless it is a real life UFO, I would say someone in SLC is playing a clever trick. Just hard to figure out how they hover and then move so fast independent of the other.

    I saw a similar thing earlier this year, maybe the same as posted above, where there were several - I was driving north from 700 East near Union Park, coming from Sandy and there were several of them in the North or East sky. Same bright orange orb shapes. I was in my car and tried to look as best I could while driving, but they disappeared behind building or trees on the horizon as if they were falling slowly from the sky. By the time I got home in Olympus Cove they were gone.

    The difference between what I saw the first time and what I saw tonight is they seemed to fall the first time, while tonight at least one seemed to rise very quickly after hovering.

  7. Last night Sat. Dec. 29th 2012 My boyfriend and I were leaving a restaurant approx. 9 P.M. downtown. As we were walking towards our car, we saw 7 to 8 round orange lights in the South East direction. They had to be quite large, because they were pretty far south. There was no obvious formation. And no movement. One by one the faded and disappeared.
