Full Description of event/sighting: My Husband was driving our truck pulling our travel trailer and I was following driving our car. We were headed South on Idaho Highway 51 which becomes Nevada Highway 225 at the state border. We were about 45 miles North of Owyhee, Nevada. It was February 21, 2008, approximately 7:00 PM. We had passed the junction towards Mountain Home Airforce Base, Idaho about 40 miles back. Suddenly up and to my left were two bright glowing lights (flares I believe) drifting my direction. At first before I had time to reason out that they were only flares, I got scared. I hate to drive anyway and especially at night, so I began to flash my lights repeatedly at my Husband to get him to pull over. He did pull off on the first side road that we came to (on the left, East-side of the highway).

There hadn't been anyone else on the highway that night (even though the main road from Idaho, South down to Wells, Nevada, was closed due to a 6.0 Earthquake that very morning). After we had stopped, we stood outside and watched the flares just as we had watched the Lunar Eclipse one (or two?) nights prior. As we watched the sky, there began other activity behind a cloud. It appeared to be a few more flares. We could see the orange lights in motion behind the cloud. Then it got scary. A couple of jets came from the West really fast and really low. They made sonic booms that vibrated through us. They went to that area behind the cloud, where we couldn't see, and fired on something.

They quickly flew back over us headed the way they had come. Then, two more jets, while we could still see the first two jets lights going away from us, did exactly the same. Sonic booms and what we believe were weapons being fired. That second time there was a huge, huge boom and at the same time it turned momentarily daytime ! Seconds later, two more jets (maybe the first two again ?) went around the other side of the cloud and came back West. From the area in the sky where all the activity was, there came down mostly orange colored streaks and irregular shaped "pieces" trailing what looked like embers behind. We estimated the activity (the object that was fired upon) at about 300 feet up and about 1/4 mile East of the road. I did not want to continue driving separately, but my Husband was very urgent wanting to leave that area and wouldn't let me abandon our car. Before we were back onto the road and heading South again, cars began speeding North on the highway. Two and three at a time.

About 18 in all. We began to travel South. After a few miles, there was a "rain" of large leaf sized ashes, like snow drifting slowly down over us. We live in an area with numerous wildfires every summer, and we are both certain it was ash and not snow. Some more miles and we ran into very dense fog. As we got to the small town of Owyhee which is just a little across the border into Nevada, it had begun to snow. We spent the night there. The next morning our faces felt burnt (like gasoline on skin feels) and we looked like we had got too much sun, although, without the usual outline of our sunglasses. Our eyes were puffy and tender. Mine swelled up and stayed that way for over a month. Even though we tell ourselves that it was most likely some military training exercise, we are also concerned that we may have witnessed something that wasn't supposed to be seen. We didn't tell anyone about it because we are big fat chickens! I finally mentioned it in a report that I made last week to NUFORC on some unrelated night-time red lights in the Elko, Nevada vicinity. Sincerely.

Thank you to the witness for this most amaazing report.
