UFO SIGHTING REPORT
June 8th 2004
Spanish Fork, Utah Bat Shaped Object
Date: June 8, 2004
Time: 11:00 p.m.
I came across your post on the UFO Sightings report on June 8th 2004. My husband and I were watching the meteor shower last night about 11:00 p.m. and we both saw this strange almost see through object fly above us. We could see the outline and it reminded me of a bat or a kite, but it was bigger than that. So I was wondering if you have found any answers to your experience? It didn't make any noise and it flew over us about 3 times while we were laying on the grass star gazing, then we got spooked and went inside :)
Q. - First of all could you please tell me where you are located ? Town, state, province, which ever ?
A. - Spanish Fork, UT
Q. - In what part of the sky was the UFO located? North, South, East, West?
A. - On the horizon or straight overhead or somewhere in between? We were stargazing it moved right over us from west to east.
Q. - As it moved, could you determine roughly how fast it traveled , how far, etc..
A. - It moved slow enough that we realized something was moving, but fast enough that by the time we realized what was going on it was gone or it blended into the night sky so we couldn't make out the outline any longer.
Q. - Describe the appearance of the UFO: shape, size, distance, color, texture.
A. - It was see through and the middle of it seemed wavy like an old window pane. I thought it was about as long as a house, but my husband says it wasn't that big. It reminded us of bat wings or a kite but the object was bigger. The color was translucent. It seemed as if we could see the sky through it.
Q. - Describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?
A. - It isn't near any of these things, but we are very close to the crop circle that was discovered here. There is also a mine that is located in the next town.
Q. - How far up in altitude do you think it was from your location ? (rough guess).
A. - I would say about 200 feet maybe less.
Q. - You also mentioned that is was larger than a bat or a kite, thinking back, would you say it was twice or more larger than a kite, etc. This is why I asked for a rough guess on how high it might have been, if flying around the same height as a small plane, jet airliner or just over tree top.
A. - It was probably above or at the tree line. It was hard to tell because it was so dark. It was about twice as big as a tree or kite.
Q. - How long were you able to watch the whole event for ?
A. - My husband saw it first but passed it off as a bat. Then I noticed it and we saw it again so in all it was probably 10-15 minutes. Then like I said I got scared and we went inside.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
