Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What are the bright lights I am seeing around 7:15 am in the sky above Salt Lake City? It doesn't happen every day, but I have seen them several times; usually 3 bright white lights floating in a line (high to low) over the valley north of the point of the mountain. More specifically, if you travel toward Bluffdale on Redwood Road, while coming down the hill just after the Utah National Guard, if you look out into the valley ahead of you and off to the right you may see this odd occurrence. From the top of the hill they appear to be lower in altitude than you are, yet still too high to be anything floating up into the air from the ground level. They also appear to be too close to be on the far mountains. They do seem to move slowly higher until they just disappear. They always appear in a line of 3, with the top one being the brightest and becoming dimmer as you get to the bottom light.

I don't believe they are UFOs in the sense that they are flying saucers with pilots from another planet. That's just nonsensical. But they are currently unidentified to me and they do appear to be flying. Could you help identify the cause of this morning light show phenomena?

PS. If it helps to narrow it down, I have seen this occur several times BEFORE it was announced that Real House Wives of Salt Lake City would be happening.

Dear you,

It's the three Nephites. No, of course I'm not joking. They each have stones from the brother of Jared's barges and they show them to Salt Lake City every morning around 7:15 (which is after they have made breakfast). 

I can tell that you're not convinced. How many lights are there? 3. How many three Nephites are there? 3 (thank goodness, or that would be super confusing). What city are the lights in? Salt Lake City. What city is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints headquartered in? Salt Lake City.

Coincidence? I think so.

P.S. If you will send me a somewhat high quality photo and/or video, I’d be happy to do more research. I’d post my email address here, but you should know it by heart by now.
