By The Salt Lake TribuneIt didn't exactly cause a "War of the Worlds"-type panic, but an unidentified object in the sky above Salt Lake City this morning had people wondering.
Television station KUTV - which has a nine-minute video of the object on its Web site - reports that what appears to be a 100-foot-long air balloon was seen floating above the valley Wednesday morning.
The silver, rocket-shaped object was sighted about 8 a.m., according to KUTV.
Salt Lake Air Traffic Control officials told the station they didn't pick up the object on radar and didn't know anything about it. They told KUTV they would investigate to see if any air traffic rules were broken.
