The sighting took place on Dec 23, 2001. I saw an orange object low in the West....a little toward the North-West. As I watched it, it slid a little to and fro as it approached our farm. As it approached, it turned from orange to yellow to white gradually. I ran in and got the binoculars and by the time I got back it was almost over our house. It was beautiful! There were five large white lights around in a circle, and one in the middle. In between each of the white lights around in the circle were what looked like a million "sparklers"....4th of July type sparklers.

It was stunningly beautiful! My husband wouldn't look at it....said he didn't believe in UFO's and refused to look through the binoculars. I was very relieved when a friend told me she and her husband had seen an orange object over a dam East of our farm the same night on their way home from Pocatello, Idaho...Eastern part of Southern Idaho. As it went over our house it was about two inches in diameter at arm's length. It was sliding slightly erratically back and forth. Height? Maybe 2000 feet. As it continued toward the East, it slowly turned yellow and then orange again. There was no sound.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
