This happened several years ago but I can’t remember what year. It had to have been around 1999 or 2000.
We were having one of those warm, blustery evenings here in southern Idaho where the temperature even at 10 o’clock in the evening was around 80 degrees. I was riding my motorcycle on one of the major roads leading out of town to the east. This is an agricultural area and there are fields on both sides.
As I was leisurely riding east I noticed a green orb that was flashing on and off just into the field to my left (north side of the road) about 50 feet from me and about 15 feet above the ground. It would flash on and off then disappear into the darkness, then flash again about a hundred yards ahead…and this cycle repeated several times. The orb looked to be about 3 ft. in diameter.
I have never witnessed anything like this before or since. When I got home I called 911 to see if anyone had reported seeing something similar that evening. The dispatcher said not that particular night but a couple nights before that one of the officers reported seeing some odd lights but she did not elaborate. I did not pursue it beyond that. I did report the incident to MUFON at that time. I’ve never figured out what it was.
