Whenever I see something in the sky that I can't explain or identify I call it a UFO, so in this instance, I would agree that it is perfectly legit to call it a UFO. I'm not saying that I see UFOs all the time, btw. Just on the two occasions when I did see something and it wasn't a falling/shooting star, which I have seen quite a lot of those.

Also, it's very cool that you want to share your experience with us, so thank you for that:)

And welcome to UM! Where most of us are certainly unidentifiable... unidentifiable members! Ha! (sorry, due to the lateness of the hour, I could not resist that one!)

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

There are a lot of private planes out here, but they are only prop planes. I live next to tons of farm land so they're usually flying around during the day but sometimes at night and you can clearly hear it and I have never seen them with headlights, just the red and green strobe lights.

Chopper possibly?  those can often have a setting that allows them to run quietly.

Where did you hear that (pun unintended)?

I didn't and that's how they get ya. :w00t:

I dont remember where, all im seeing right now is articles from like 2010 on choppers having a type of blade allowing for quieter flights. SO I could be entirely off.

I like my idea about it being a balloon best of all the wild speculation ive thrown so far

The International Space Sation perhaps........... the swerve could just be a trick of the eyes.
I've seen the International  Space Station at night, and it's very bright white light and fast moving, and looks like it just dissapears from view.

Did your sighting look like this?

It didn't. It wasn't going that fast.

Probably not. I see helicopters all the time around here. I can hear them from a distance. It could though, but I think we all would've heard it on how close it was.  

Haha alright. I'm not really arguing with anyone, I'm just giving the facts of what I observed, and heard that night. It was pretty quiet at that time.

Not sure if I added this but it did change direction. It was heading south then east south east.

Actually, some choppers are designed to run quietly; very quietly. I live in a place where military choppers often fly overhead and they are loud, rattling the house. Never seen one of the quiet ones, but I have no doubt they exist. Have a gander at this little blurpI wrote a few years ago:

No, I believe they exist. I just assumed that any with that technology are extremely expensive and rare, as opposed to something you might see flying around here and there. Maybe over Area 51, but I don't know about Utah. Maybe there is a new 'Area __' near there.

That's the thing about the ISS, it can appear to be moving at high speed, or it can appear to be moving slowly.........it really depends on what angle in the sky the ISS is seen from.

Take this other video of the ISS,
In this video the ISS appears to be moving very slowly.

https://www.youtube....h?v=XeVNeAp8Fng

Whilst what you saw may or may not be the ISS, it does illustrate that the observed speed of any flying object can be decpetive when you know that the ISS is travelling at exactly the same speed in the first video as it is in the second video........although it doesn't appear that way.

It wasn't that high.
