Duration: 30 secs
No of observers: 1

Location: Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Shape: Disk

Object emerged slowly from above intersection of two contrails (X) and came from SW direction. Contrails ran from NE to SW and from NNE to SSW.

I was looking at the two formed contrails when a dark red object with black edges appeared. My first thought was a UFO, then I thought it was a kite, but it was too high for that. Then I thought it was a private plane as it seemed to be travelling about that speed towards me. I was listening to hear an engine and when I didn't hear one I turned my head to call inside the house to my wife to come quickly. When she didn't respond (about 4 secs.) I looked back to the area in the sky where I had seen it and it was not there. It was gone. It was like a saucer, or diamond on it's side in shape.
