THe tip > >was the only portion of the island above the clouds.... Have been to Antelope Island in the last 6 months, when I was scouting the Tooele and Dugway areas. The highest point on the south of the island might be Mollys Nipple, (Molly must have been well known; there's a Molly's Nipple south of Hurricane, Utah too) but I think Stringham Peak and Frary Peak are higher. If the F-16 was at 7000', that would have put the lighted area about 1000' below them. There used to be a ranch there, but there's nothing there now, as it's a park,and it's pretty barren. Just some sagebrush, bison, jackrabbits and coyote. The whole north-central Utah area is pretty isolated, so lots could go on without many people seeing it. >A woman at Tooele (The town near the depot where the DOD destroys >chems) saw "lights" and reported it to the paper and was told by the >U.S. Air Force that it was a "rocket test" at our restricted area in >northern Utah. The Hill AFB bombing and gunnery range is directly west of the Salt Lake, but I haven't heard of any facility capable of rocket launches there. Now Dugway,.... there's lot's of Skunky stuff going on there. -- Wayne Busse firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
