UFO BOISE IDAhO 8/8/2020 between 8:30-9:30 p.m.
We saw a stationary white object that looked round through our biloculars and it appeared to be catching the sun so it was very metallic and hard to tell what it was. After 15 minutes of it not moving, we got out our more powerful spotting scope out and was able to zoom in on the object very clearly. It was semi round and had two rows of lights. The lights started at the top left and right and curved down towards the bottom. Very distinctively.
We called our neighbor over to see if he had seen anything like it and he was surprised at the clarity and unusual object. It was very distinctive that the lights on it was not sun reflections as the sun went down and it was very clear. We are in SE Boise Idaho and sitting on our patio, which faced North. once it was dark, it disappeared. We observed it for a good hour, We had also called the local news station, Channel 7; and left a recording around 9:00 pm hoping to see if further equipment might be able to zoom in closer.
We hav t heard back, nothing on the 10:00 news so we will see if anything further develops tomorrow. We did not have the ability to take a picture of the zoomed in object clearly defined thru the spotting scope, unfortunately, but we could definitely draw it. The object was less clear through binoculars and only looked like a round metallic object, reflected by the sun. it was just a tiny stationary white object in the sky by naked eye. The spotting scope was amazingly telling as to what we were seeing.
