Case 111479: Steven (a pseudo-name), who lives in a wooded, mountainous region near Athol, Idaho, spotted a black triangular craft moving at the speed of a small aircraft from east to west toward his house. Steven estimated the craft to be between 30 feet to 100 feet in length and traveling at about 60 miles per hour. There were no flashing lights, no red or green navigation lights (as required by the FAA). There were lights in each corner of the triangle, though he did not specify what color(s). When it approached his house, the triangle stopped, then hovered for a short time and then proceeded along the same path and altitude of approximately 1,000 feet, and at the “same speed” (testimony below differs from sketch). As the craft passed over his head at an 85° elevation, it blocked out the star field above. The craft was completely silent, and there were no emissions. See Steven’s sketch left.
