What was this strange object filmed over American Fork, Utah, this past Friday evening? According to witness Anthony Piceno, who filmed the strange blue “craft,” it appeared to be “a strange blue object” that was “neon blue (with) red flashing lights.”

According to information posted at The Weather Channel’s website, “Mysterious blue lights hovered in the night sky above American Fork, Utah, Friday. Earthly explanations include a radio-controlled model airplane, or paraglider outfitted with lights. No official explanation has been released.”

Kimberly Kratochvil, who was in Provo at the time the Piceno film was made, described seeing the same object with her husband, and that it was accompanied by other lights in the sky. “It was to the west that we saw them early in the evening,” she said, commenting on the original post at weather.com, and that “they were not remote controlled airplanes or a paraglider.” Another commenter, Elizabeth Stevens of Manhattan, Kansas, noted that odd lights were seen almost exactly one year ago over the town of American Fork. “If you will Google “strange lights in Utah” or something like that, you’ll get reports from a year ago,” Stevens wrote. “Just a little fishy, I’d say.”

Does the paraglider explanation really fit the circumstances, as suggested in the news report above? Or is there another explanation for the odd blue light Piceno managed to film? In truth, after watching the video above, it’s already become pretty clear to most of us that this wasn’t any paraglider… but instead, merely a young entrepreneur advertising his business logo by means of a good old fashioned, garage-tailored “UFO”! Hey, it still looked pretty good in Piceno’s video… 😉

  1. So far, the best thing about the video I’ve linked above may in fact be the news anchor that was reporting the story at the beginning! Hee hee… 😉

  2. You got that right, Micah. I’d watch a lot of news if I were in Utah. Hell, I’d probably be one of the most informed men on the planet.
