Green Oval Shaped UFO Sighted Near Gowen Air Field US Air Force Base Boise Idaho

During August 2004 at approximately 01:00 hours in the morning, myself and a passenger were traveling South toward the hills on Federal Way in Boise Idaho near a large power station and some small subdivisions and near Gowen Air Field US Air Force Base only a few miles west, there was no traffic and the sky was clear and the temperature was around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. As we traveled on the desolate highway South, a bright green light went over us, very low to the ground and at a high rate of speed moving south above the highway illuminating the area around us for a moment. We were very startled and I inadvertently drove off the road and stopped the car, yelling "WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT!" over and over. I reached under my coat and took a hold of my 1911 pistol instinctively and then thought, “Yeah right”. As for the object itself, it was very large and oval shaped and simply glowed green and was very low to the ground making no sound and moved at a high rate of speed disappearing over the hills to the south. And for the rest of the evening we were both perplexed by what we could not explain and which scared the hell out of us. I reported it to the US Air Force whom I believe thought that I was making it all up.
