Location of Sighting: Cocolalla, Idaho
Date of Sighting: November 10, 2019
Time of Sighting: 9:20 & 9:48 PM PST
Description: At approximately 21:20 while sitting on my couch watching TV with my family I saw a large, white circle of light (through my West facing window beneath the TV) flying in a westerly direction at a speed comparable to a meteorite. The light was WNW of my home. It was approximately double the size of the International Space Station (ISS), several orders of magnitude brighter than the brightest I have ever seen the ISS. It did not trail any streak of fire, it did not break apart, and it made no noise that I could hear from indoors. I immediately ran out of the house to attempt to view it further, and did not see or hear anything else unusual. I informed my wife about what I saw, but she had not seen the light through the window.
I went back to watching TV with my family. At 21:48 (based on cell phone video time stamp) two amber or possibly orange colored lights had appeared in the sky visible through the same westward facing window. The lights appeared to be well past Huckleberry Ridge. Viewed from my home, they were just north of the Star Vega. They appeared to be a similar diameter as Vega, but perhaps not as bright and definitely were not white. The lights at first appeared stationary, but then I could tell they were drifting upward as they passed a faint, small star in the background. I yelled to my wife to come quick, and asked my daughter to bring my cell phone. My wife witnessed the two amber colored lights move toward each other and then apart from each other a couple times, before one zoomed off to the north or possibly northeast. As it zipped away it’s light dissipated. The other stayed in the same area, before it’s light dissipated too. I did not get to see the dynamic movement of the two amber lights because I was unsuccessfully attempting to catch the event on video.
This has all been extraordinarily unsettling. Neither of us have ever seen anything unexplainable like this before. If you encounter anyone else who saw this event please give them my contact information. I would like to talk about it more.
Note: A check of satellite databases showed that the ISS was not visible in the area at the time of the sighting. Therefore the white object was not the ISS.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
