Duration:~ 1 hr
Third consecutive night of sighting. Very active tonight.

Third consecutive night of sighting, in addition to this morning at 0715. Very active this evening. Very pronounced zigzag motions, though not extremely abrupt. Object was higher in sky this evening at first sighting, ~35 deg inclination, and a bit further west of Northwest. Over the course of an hour, object dropped slightly, and moved somewhat north. Again, lights are strobing between red, green, and white. Called Payette County Sherrif's Office, but no corroborating reports at this time.

((NUFORC Note: We observe that the motion described by the witness is consistent with how a star or planet would be seen to move in the northwestern sky. PD))
