Golden lights formed what appeared to be windows on a large saucer shaped object in the Boise foothills area

On February 27, 2005 at approximately 1950 hours while driving on the 184 connector downtown Boise, - it was almost dark, the road busy, - we noticed some strange lights going on and off in the Boise foothills area to the left (approximately east/northeast and either sitting ON or hovering in FRONT of the foothills). These lights were approximately 2/3 of the way down from the Shafer Butte/Bogus Basin area and away to the northwest from that area so I know that it wasn't the lights from Bogus Basin or any vehicles on the road to/from Bogus Basin nor are there any buildings or structures of any kind in that area of the foothills. The lights formed what appeared to be the windows or lights attached to a saucer shaped/disc type of object. The object appeared to be of great size (approximately 100-200 meters across) since our vantage point was about 10 miles away and the object still appeared large to us. These bright golden lights would go on and off. We could watch them for a while while we kept driving, then they would just go off.
