|Eastern Salt Lake City disappearing light sighting.
Driving east-bound home on US I-80 in the eastern Salt Lake City area just before the connection to US I-215. See a glowing golden light in the distance, I first mistook it for an oddly colored star. It stayed in place for a few seconds -- then moved at an increasing rate North from its location and disappeared. As the object moved it picked up speed and once it was moving rapidly it left a golden trail of light.
It acted unlike a shooting star in the sense that it hung in place for a few seconds, before traveling off and leaving a streak which was quite long.
