|Amber lights appearing in the skies over Wendell, ID 8:00PM 02/02/2010
My friends and I were heading west on interstate 84 when we observed a string of round amber lights, one appearing after another at a diagonal upward angle to the last, just ahead of us seeming to be oriented somewhere over the farmland between Wendell and the Bob Barton road. We decided to try and get closer for a better look but since it was dark our phone cameras were insufficient for pictures. We witnessed the object(s) a few more times, each time rerouting our course adjusting for the change in position of the object. Finally we gave up the chase after seeing no other signs of the object for over ten minutes.
Also, its important to note that as one light would go out another would appear. Sometimes the string would get to be three or four lights in a diagonal upward row. I have witnessed this before, but my last encounter I owned a radar detector. Each time that the lights would appear, my radar detector would go off as if someone had just shot me with a radar gun. Full blast. I no longer have the detector however, as it broke a few months ago. I am a full-time college student/sophomore to the College of Southern Idaho and manage a restaurant in Jerome ID.
