Utah Army base goes into lock-down as UFO’s are reported over nearby town [w/ updates]

A major Army testing facility called Dugway Proving Ground went into lock-down very suddenly at 5:24 p.m. MST Wednesday. Then, between 7:15 and 7:30, news stations began to receive phone calls from people reporting UFOs over a town to the east of the arm facility: American Fork.

The original headline at FOX News seems to have been “Utah Army Base Locked-Down to Solve Problem.” But that was soon changed to the current headline of “Missing ‘Nerve Agent’ Caused Base Lockdown at Utah Army Base,” to reflect the official story given by the military. (As of this writing, the web address of the story still contains the original slug: “utah-army-base-locked-solve-problem.”)
Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) is a US Army facility where the very latest weapons are tested. Officially, only biological weapons are tested there. From the Wikipedia article on the facility:
Dugway’s mission is to test US and Allied biological and chemical weapon defense systems in a secure and isolated environment. DPG also serves as a facility for US Army Reserve and US National Guard maneuver training, and US Air Force flight tests – mostly from nearby Hill AFB in Ogden. DPG is controlled by the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC). The area has also been used by US Army Special Forces for training in preparation for deployments to the War in Afghanistan.
From the FOX News article:
The Army says Dugway Proving Ground, where military weapons are tested, was locked down for hours over a missing vial of VX “nerve agent.” The amount missing was less than one fourth of a teaspoon and it was recovered at around 3 a.m., according to the station.

The Army says no one was in danger and the lockdown was ordered as a precaution. Between 1,200 and 1,400 people were inside the facility at the time.
American Fork is about a 3-hour drive from Dugway Proving Ground, according to Google Maps. Just a few hours after the military facility went into lock-down, between 7:15 and 7:30,three lights drifted over American Fork. They were red, and appeared to remain in formation the entire time.
From an article at the local
Lynette Chidester lives in Highland and is one of those puzzled by what she saw. “I don’t believe in extra-terrestrials.” But she also doesn’t believe the lights were from airplanes or helicopters. She says they didn’t make a sound, and there were no blinking lights, just a constant red.
“I noticed over the roof of the garage a red light and white light and the red light isn’t flashing like a plane light and that’s what draws my attention to it.” She says soon there were three red lights and those lights started dropping white streams.

Mike Galbraith was a few miles away in American Fork. He was in the parking lot of a shopping plaza when he saw the lights hanging in the sky. Galbraith was in the Air Force and says his experience caused him to take special notice of the unusual lights. He grabbed his cell phone and started taking video.
Galbraith said, “They looked like they were flying in formation perfectly together and then whatever was dropping looked like it was burning real bright.”

Galbraith says he doesn’t believe the trails of white that dropped straight down from the red lights were flares. He says military flares don’t look like that. “They usually shoot out the sides, or they shoot down, and there are a lot of them and you could definitely hear them.” He says there was no sound.

He says he could not make out the shape of the flying objects, but says they were unlike any plane or helicopter he has ever seen, and they were flying at an unusual altitude.

Lynette’s husband also witnessed the lights and streams. He was once an employee of a company that manufactured components for military flares.

Lynette says he could not identify what the flying objects were, but agrees with Galbraith’s assessment that what was being released was not a flare. “After a couple of seconds he knew it wasn’t a flare. He didn’t know what it was.”
No one else seems to know either. The control tower at the Provo airport had no reports of anything unusual last night, nor did the Utah County Sheriffs Department.

Salt Lake International’s control tower had no incidents documented, and officials at Camp Williams also had nothing to report. Both witnesses we talked to say the objects eventually just flew away.

Is the army facility testing something other than biological weapons, or did they receive an unexpected visit from above?

UPDATE — Jan 29:

In the comments at the ABC4 article, some people are pointing out that the lights might be RC vehicles; and what the witnesses saw might have been some folks doing night-flying. 

Apparently people usually assemble at nearby Art Dye Park. A comment from “melfsmite” reads: “Here’s a YouTube Video of our group flying at Art Dye park …”

Night flying at Art Dye Park.

It looks like a great time. And I can see how someone might see those from a distance and think “UFO.” 

However, those craft do not look like the single UFO that was seen hovering and dropping what looked like a flare. 

2 observations about that. 

1 – Another comment from has this to say:
I saw the lights and so did the neighbors accross the street. I grabbed my palcorder and filmed part of it and that is on youtube. We live in AF near the Cemetary. These came from beyond I15 over Walmart and continued on to the southeast towards Lindon. They did not come from Art Dye park. That was completely in the opposite direction. Sorry.

2 – Also, the lights that were seen moved in and out of each other; as if the object was shifting it’s shape slightly, or possibly rotating. And then something that looked hot and glowing dropped (or dripped?) from the UFO. Remember, most of the ABC4 article focuses on whether or not it was a military vehicle doing a flare drop; which tends to be today’s “weather balloon” explanation for UFOs. 

Something was seen falling or dripping from the craft. The RC flyers conversation in the comments thread seems to miss that fact.

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
