On september 26, 2017, at approximately 0830 mst, i was entering the building where i work as a security guard, and i looked up into the sky to the west of my location. i observed what looked like sunlight reflecting off of a plane very high up, probably at least 100,000 feet altitude. it was above the wispy cloud layer. i observed that the object that appeared to be reflecting was not moving and just hanging in the sky. i notified another guard and he also witnessed the object in the sky. i notified an additional guard, and at least three employees also were notified and observed the object. i checked my star and planet finder app on my phone and there were no stars or planets in that section of the sky. i attempted to look at the object with binoculars and could see it since it wasn’t moving, but it just appeared to be a white light. the object stayed in the same location in the sky for roughly 30 minutes, then when checked periodically appeared to drift very slowly to the north. the object was in the sky in fairly geosynchronous orbit for over an hour. from 0830-0930. i took several photographs of the object with my phone. i notified another guard at a different facility, approximately 10 miles to the northeast of my facility and asked him if he could see it. he later advised me that he and at least one other guard at his facility did see the object, but not until 1300. this guard advised me that he saw the object to the north east of my location, and possibly higher since it was harder to see than the photo i’d sent him. this guard advised me that he’d seen the object for about 30 seconds before it did a “j loop” and shot off to the southeast. this guard advised me that when the object left it appeared as if a shooting star or a comet, similar to the objects photographed and video-taped over salt lake city between 09/15/17 and 09/17/17. i had work to do inside the building so i wasn’t able to observe the object after 0930. when i was next able to check at approximately 1020, i could no longer see the object, apparently because it had moved to the north and east of my location. this means the object remained in the sky over the valley for 4.5 hours. a little about my background. i was a police officer for 9 years prior to becoming a security guard. i also have a military background. i do consider myself to be a trained observer with a lot of experience. the other guards who witnessed have varying levels of experience, one has military experience, the others are experienced security officers and also trained observers.
