An unidentified flying object was filmed dropping flare-like objects over Utah last week, leaving locals to wonder if they had experienced a close encounter with alien spacecrafts.
“They looked like they were flying in formation perfectly together and then whatever was dropping looked like it was burning real bright,” witness Mike Galbraith told Utah’s ABC 4. An Air Force veteran, Galbraith says that the trails of white lights falling from the objects were not military flares. “They usually shoot out the sides, or they shoot down, and there are a lot of them and you could definitely hear them.” Galbraith said the UFOs were silent.
According to AOL News, local airports and military installations have offered no explanation for the lights.
“I don’t believe in extraterrestrials,” said local resident Lynette Chidester. “I noticed over the roof of the garage a red light and a white light, and the red light isn’t flashing like an airplane light does — that’s what drew my attention to it.”
She then saw the streaks of white, glittering light reported by other witnesses like Galbraith. “Out of the red light comes, like, a firework — the phosphorescent silver — it’s coming down out of it and I thought, ‘OK, I’ve never seen that before.”
Residents reported seeing the lights for 15 minutes before they flew away.
