Lights over Salt Lake City.

I work at the Salt Lake City Airport and as I was looking to the west, I noticed a cigar shaped mass floating through the air at approximately blimp speed. It was almost a transparent/flourescent type of light. It was lined with lights. The lights weren't very bright, but they went all the way around it. and it changed shape like it stood on it's end and got shorter and fatter as it was turning on its end. As it flattened out again it got long and skinny, like a cigar. I definitly was not an airplane or a weather balloon. It was like what you hear on ufo shows. It made no noise. I have never seen anything like it and it is very hard to describe. It was witnessed by about 12 people.


We would welcome reports from the other witnesses. PD
