Name: Chris Wood

Date of Sighting: 10-13-10 7:50am

Location of Sighting: Boise Id.

Shape(s) of UFO(s): round

Size(s) of UFO(s): Est. Size of bus or bigger

Color(s) of UFO(s): Black

Number of UFO(s): 1

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: Est. Several miles

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): West

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): Between I-84 and Boise Foothills.

Further Description of Sighting: Driving to work went around the corner past the Eagle to I-84 on ramp. something caught my eye to the left above the foothills.

Thought at first it was a hot air balloon, however, they are usually brightly colored and this was solid black. They (balloons) usually fly in groups and this was a solitary object.

Balloons will have a teardrop shape with a basket under and this was round with no basket. the object was showing a shiny arc of reflection on the side facing the sun.

It gradually lowered and moved in front of the foothills. As I was driving some trees next to the freeway blocked my view. When I passed them the object was no longer visible.

I work next to Gowen Field so see all types of military and civilian aircraft and helicopters. No resemblance to any of those. I thought about the balloons that car dealerships and stores float, but, have never seen a black one and usually they are smaller and you can see the string, cable or whatever is tethering it.

Just thought this was interesting as I have never seen anything like it. My son may have posted a duplicate report for me.

    Further Description of Sighting: My Father, who is a noble honest man and has no reason to lie or tell stories, claims he saw a black circular object in the sky to the northwest this morning at 9:30 am. He was heading east on I-84 in between the Eagle exit and the “Y”. He claims that at first it appeared to be a pure black hot air balloon. There were none other than the one in the sky and it started moving slowly to the west as he was heading east. He assumed it was a helicopter until he was close enough to see it clearly, and he states clearly that it was not a helicopter. It accelerated west so quickly that there was no time to pull over and examine the object. All day today, even i noticed in the treasure valley, the Air Force was on full patrol. Something on radar must have got their attention hence all the military jets in the air today. I told my father to call the non-emergency sheriff hot line next time he saw a sighting such as this. I recommend the same to everyone that see’s something wierd going on in our airspace.
