Huge triangle shaped object seen hovering over Boise Idaho

After an afternoon of shopping at the Boise mall, we were just getting on the West on ramp of the freeway for our trip home when I saw much brighter than normal lighting approaching from the South. As a retired USAF aircraft maintenance man I assumed that I was seeing landing lights since we were near the airport, however, they were more intense than I had ever seen and within 30 seconds or so, were near enough that I could distinguish 6 individual lights across the front. We had pulled onto the shoulder as had 2 other cars and were watching as the straight line of lights stopped and the object turned up at an angle and then we could make out a full 3D of a triangle shape that appeared to be larger than a football field. No sounds were heard from the object, however, the radio station I had the car radio set to inexplicably changed on its own to a different station. My wife was telling me to stop totally so she could get a better look, but instead I stepped on the gas and got the heck out of there as did the other 2 cars. To this day, I was nervous about mentioning this case to anyone and have advised my wife to not mention it either.
