Description: On Highway 93, a few miles north of I-84 I saw a flash of light off to the left (west). Then I saw something that looked like a big balloon or something only glowing. It was silvery. This was about 10:30 PM. It was not the moon. The moon was not in the sky, but I know this was different. Besides, it was in the west and the moon would have been rising in the east. The object did not move. The road went behind a hill and when I had a clear view to the left again it was not there. The flash of light was like a spotlight or something only much bigger. (By that I mean it was obviously quite some distance away, but it stretched up rather far into the sky.) I have never seen anything like this before, but a friend of mine in Boise said he had heard of similar things.
Note: The witness is correct that the Moon was not visible at the time of the sighting. The moon had set at 1:15 PM and did not rise until 3:36 AM.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
