Utah Woman Says Family Got a UFO Fly By While Camping

At first the other campers didn't believe them...

The current willingness of the U.S. Government to report on and explore the UFO phenomenon has brought a lot of people out of the woodwork. Once upon a time, it was the policy of the U.S. Government to “discredit” any reports of UFO sightings, no matter how credible. This was a Cold War psy-op, and led to respectable people denying their own experiences because they’d been told it was impossible. Now that folks aren't afraid of being labeled "kooks", it is clear that lots of people having been seeing these objects for a long, long time.

It must be a great relief for families like this one to come and say, “Yeah, this happened and we have no idea what it was.”


This family was camping near Boulder Mountain, Utah many years ago. The woman was returning to her campsite with her father and a few friends when they saw a giant, orange-red ball appear in the sky. In a flash, it went from one side of the horizon to another, far faster than any shooting star might travel.

Their father, an engineer and very “logical” man, said at once that he thought it was a UFO. When they got back to camp, they told their companions and the rest of their family what they saw, but no one believed them.

However, that was not the end of the story! Later that night, the entire camp saw the exact same UFO coming back across the sky with the same behavior, only in the opposite direction. After that, everyone in the family believed the story, for they had seen it with their own eyes.
