Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Red, Geen, Blue, and White flashing lights on stationary craft

Four of us watched for more than as hour a very slow craft in the sky north and slightly east of Couer D'Alene ID. The craft was low on the horizon and rose slowly.

At first we all thought it was an aircraft off in the distance but after watching it for a half an hour we felt it was something different.

The craft flashed red, blue, and green lights and would emit a white light from time to time.

After a while it moved very slowly to the east parallel to the ground. At other times it would stay in one place for several minutes. Two of us observed the craft creating a "worm like" pattern in the sky.

((NUFORC Note: Description is not unlike many reports NUFORC receives, which we suspect are caused by twinkling stars, and other celestial bodies. However, we did not see the object, and this is only an "educated" guess. PD))
