Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming Bright Object Comes To A Stop

Date: July 2002
Time: Approx: 10:30 p.m.

Hello Brian. Just read your "Pilot UFO Sighting In Tranquillity, California". One part of this article of the flashing UFOs reminded me of an incident that my wife and I had in Yellowstone National Park while we were on vacation in July, 2002. We were headed back to our hotel in West Yellowstone. It was late around 10:30 pm. The sky was crystal clear and you could see the stars like a crisp winter night. At my 10:00 position I saw a brilliant flash of light so bright that we thought it may have been a nuke flash in space. I was in the military and am very familiar with nuclear blast effects. My wife works in a sensitive info dept of the government so we were very concerned. We recalled that the EMP would have fried the electronics in our car so we dismissed this as a possibility. I slowed down to a crawl and began watching that portion of the sky for something unusual.

We noticed a brilliant "star" moving north on a very slow track. We both watched it and about 15 seconds after the first flash another flash came from this object! After the second flash the object moved for another 2-3 seconds and came to a stop. I pulled over and stopped to see what would happen next and watched the object now motionless in the sky. After several minutes my wife complained about wanting to get back to the hotel and get ready for bed and our early rise next morning. It never moved again while I kept track of it the next 30 or so minutes. It simply looked like a bright star in the sky. All the time I watched the object I suspected it to be a military satellite or maybe a high flyer recon craft but seeing it stop and stay stationary has puzzled me since.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
