I just wanted to know if anybody else in Idaho has ever witnesses UFOs. Last summer in the middle of July, my roommate (J.), the girl next door (C.),
and I were sitting on our roof. J. and C. were drinking beer, but still not nearly drunk. I was completely sober when this occured because I hadn't
acquired a taste for beer at the time. I'm more of a wine enthusiast, but I didn't have any alcohol in me at the time.
We were stargazing, and there was an unusual number of shooting stars because of one of the asteroid cycles. If I remembered the date, I could be more
specific. Unfortunately, I don't recall the exact date or time of this occurance and I didn't have a camera handy because I don't just sit there
with a camera expecting odd things to happen. Nor do I expect that any camera I've ever had would take a clear picture of what I'm about to
Anyhow, me and J. were laying on our backs looking up at the sky while C was laying on her chest facing the other direction. Suddenly, an array of
about 6 lights flew overhead. Excitedly, both J. and I sat up.
"Did you just see what I saw?" I asked.
"I'm glad you asked. I thought it might've been the beer," said J.
"No. It definitely wasn't," I said.
"What did you guys see?" C. asked.
J. and I just looked at eachother and we both said, "A UFO."
"Or maybe more than one," I thought aloud.
Anyhow, C. was ticked off because she believes in UFOs and aliens and the like but J. and I are more skeptical but open-minded. Still, I can't deny
that I saw something strange that night. It couldn't have been an airplane or helicopter because the lights were just wrong they weren't blinking,
and they were in sort of a V formation, but offset like a flock of birds and in the same sort of flight path (diagram below).
I know there's a Gov't nuclear site called the INL (previously INEEL) nearby, so perhaps it could've been something in connection with that,
especially since whatever this UFO was seemed to be heading that direction. I've been on the site before, but it was in high school for a field trip
and there were limits on where we were allowed to go because a lot of top secret research goes on there.
Anyhow, my description has gone long enough for now. I just want to know if anyone can confirm details or report other sightings in Idaho. Or if you
have another explanation, I'd love to hear it. I'm not assuming that it was alien or human. I'm just curious what might be going on here.
