UFOs in Idaho?

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 describe.

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.

J. agreed.

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.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, as these UFOs came in, they slowed down and nearly came to a stop (though not directly over us, and I have the feeling whatever they were, they were entirely unbothered by our presence). They were heading s/sw, but shortly after passing overhead, they changed course about w/sw. To me it seems they were either headed for the INL or attempting to just barely avoid it, or waiting for directions to a landing site. Whatever the case is, they made some sort of course correction, so I highly doubt it was just a group of shooting stars. In fact, that possibility is entirely implausible in my opinion.

Just finished filing a report with NUFORC.org, so I guess I'll see what they have to say about it.
