An unusual experience was recounted from 1981 by a former Utah park ranger where a church group reported a flashing light circling a nearby canyon that revealed a “creature-like” object, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The event occurred at the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.

“The light was described to be similar to a strobe light and bright enough to light up the canyon wall,'” the former ranger stated. “The group observed the light flying in close proximity to their campsite for approximately one and a half (1 1/2) hours. At one point it (the object) was thirty (30) feet away when group member shined a spot light on it and described what he saw as ‘creature-like.'”

The report further states that during the “summer of 1981 the National Park Service received a number of reports, from visitors, camped on the shoreline of Lake Powell, of ‘giant fireflies.’ Several of the reports were received at the Carl Hayden Visitor Center, located near Glen Canyon Dam.”
