On 4 Oct 2015 at 2145 hours we observed a bright fiery orange light in the southern sky above Boise, Idaho. This object moved erratically as we observed it for 10 minutes. It went north, then east, and then gained elevation until it appeared to vanish. We also saw blinking lights from other aircraft that approached in the vicinity of the bright object. The object looked much larger than the other aircraft passing over.
