I spent my New Year's Eve, bringing it in with the Universe, near Birthing Rock(near Moab, Utah). It was awesome, such a clear night, The Milky Way was beautiful. Orion, Perseus, Sirius, Polaris,,, Jupiter, were all magnificent. I saw 3 meteorites and right before midnight the Moon set. One of the best NEW YEARS, Ever!!! Then on my way back I came around the corner towards Moab, and there they were. Two orange lights. I don't know what they were, but they were ascending slowly and to the east of Ursa Major.They weren't helicopters.They were orange-red, about 5 times larger than Jupiter and 1 magnitude brighter than Sirius that night. I would have to guess about 2,000 - 3,000 feet above Sand Flats. I called the local law enforcement dispatch and asked if their deputies were reporting anything. I reassured her that I am not crazy, haven't had alcohol in months and I don't do drugs and as a matter of fact I used to work for this law enforcement agency. She suggested they were fireworks.. I advised her they were not fireworks, the light was constant and had been there for 4 minutes. Then, one faded in about 5 seconds, the other faded about 30 seconds later at the same rate as the first.
