UFO Sighting Report


July, 22, 1999


Saint George , Utah, United States


Orange glowing circles filled the night sky, they moved in from the West as if coming from Nevada. They moved in over the city of Saint George Utah and stopped. They all moved in at about the same pace and what really set them apart from anything else we had ever seen was their eratic and impossible movement with NO sound and were very low.

Date Reported:

11/16/2012 10:15:05 PM

Sighting Time: 

8:00pm - 10:00pm



No. of Witnesses: 

8-10 in our group


2 plus hours (We gave up and went to bed)

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

They first appeared as really bright orange-ish colored stars. They were very low though and had no sound at all. It was a clear calm night with no wind so thats what made it even more eerie. Their movement was impossibly fast. From a stand still position they would zip across the sky and change directions instantly.

Size of Object(s)

They were about the same size as seeing our planets in the sky but brighter.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Saint George Utah is an area that is red rock and sand (Desert) Warm weather year round. Summer it gets up to 115 F at night 80-90 F is average. It is located to the South West Corner of Utah along Arizona, Nevada. Relitively close to Nelis Airforce Base and the famous Area 51.

Full Description & Details

It was about 8:00pm in the evening and the sun had just set so there was a redish orange glow on the horizon. My mother inlaw ran into the house and told us all to come see this. When I walked out the back sliding glass door and looked to the West ward sky there were these orange-ish colored glowing spheres that were all moving in from the West as if coming from Nevada. We lived in Saint George UT at the time. They were very low and filled the sky. What struck me as VERY odd was there movement. Once settled over the city most of them remained motionless for hours but a few of the others began to shoot from one position to another zipping at impossible speeds. One began to circle another sphere as if it was playing around. One of them shot out of sight in the blink of an eye. There was absolutely no sound especially for how low they were. I am an X Marine and have lived on base so I know what its like to have military aircraft flying above us and these resembled anything I had ever seen. I ran into the house to get my video camera so that we could may be take a closer look at them through the zoom but because weeks before my camera had been dropped the focus was not working properly. I asked my wife to run inside and get us a blanket while the rest of us grabbed the patio chairs. She came back and we laid out the blanket on the lawn and cuddled together watching them for a few hours. It was an experience I will never forget. It was a feeling of fear and excitement like I had never before felt, and for the first time in my life I knew we were not alone out here. As a child and all through my teen years every summer I would sleep outside on our trampolene watching the night sky, counting shooting stars, watching satelights, and airplanes. This single event sparked an interest in me that I have not been able to simply dismiss. I was told it was helicopters or just maybe some experimental air craft that our government had been working with since we lived so close to the famous Area 51. One thing I do know is that it was unlike anything I had ever seen before or since. The next day brought even more proof of what we had seen because it was reported in our local newspaper that there were over 300 + reported sightings from Vegas, Overton, and others. A few weeks later I was watching TV the Discovery channel I believe and it was a documentry on UFO's. And they had shown the exact same things but they were clear in cities back East and also talked about WWII pilots and in their journals they reported seeing the same things as what we had seen that night. I thought then that if we had this technology back then why the hell wouldnt we have applied this what we have today. I believe we had seen something that wasnt of human origin. This was truely an amazing experience one that I will never forget.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No at first we thought maybe they were the balloons they had just let go at a local baseball game. As we watched them while the night sky grew darker and darker and their orange glow began to grow brighter while the sun set it was obvious what they were not especially when they began to zip across the sky at impossible speeds

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Before I did not believe in them. I used to make fun of my uncle who claims that he was ran off the road by one and rolled his pickup 4 times on our old ranch out to 9 Mile Canyon Utah. I told him it was just someones high beams shining through his beer bottle has he swigged it. Since this event I've completely changed my out look on them and it has opened my mind up to so many possibilities. Some say that it would de-bunk the whole God theory but I dont see it that way I believe that life was created else where and there is soooo much we dont know, and to think that were the only ones in this vast open space is truely the crazy way of thinking.

Other Comments

If anyone else remembers this event and has more details about it I would love to look at it in further detail.
