Reported: 5/28/1999 10:59
Posted: 2/5/2003
Location: US Hwy 200 between MP 39 & 40, ID
Shape: Light
Duration:60 sec
I saw a bright white light approximately 80 ft. above the lake and approximately 2 football fields length away from me.

I was driving westbound on hwy. 200, east of Sandpoint. I came around a few curves and noticed a bright white light off to my right over the lake. It was perfectly still and below the horizon. Emanating from the light was a triangular beam of light going down to the water. The triangular beam was a grey/white color. I was able to see the light and beam for approximately 10-12 sec. and then it went out. Immediately after the light and beam went off I thought I saw what appeared to be 2 narrow rectangular dim red lights. The rectangular lights looked as though they closed up. I continued driving and looking through my rear and side view mirrors. After about 1 mile further away from the site I saw the light and beam reappear, as I continued to drive.
