Location: Salt Lake City, UT
Shape: Circle
Duration: 10 minutes
Silver orb hovering at 5 km just east of the Salt Lake Valley.

My wife daughter and I decided to get out of the valley smog and go for a late afternoon hike. We took I-80 east to East Canyon, where the road is closed at the gate and you hike on packed snow.

On our way back we were looking at the moon, and various vapor trail patterns, when my daughter said what star is that? At first I thought it was a planet because of its round shape. At closer examination, we could see that it was a silver orb that was hovering at about 15,000 feet.

It stayed at in a stationary spot for about 10 minutes, and then disappeared.
