Location: Spokane (About 30 miles SW of,I-90, maybe MM 254), WA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 minutes
Dark boomerange object seen for ten minutes hovering over the freeway with a bright light out the front that lit up the fields. No jet or helecopter sound whatsoever.

I was driving S. on I-90 about 30 miles SW of Spokane WA, when off in the distance I spotted a bright light. I assumed that it was a satalite. It got brighter and brighter, so I began to watch it closely. We seemed to be coming up on the object, and I then thought that it was a jet plane with its light on. It did not seem to be approaching us however, as we saw the light for at least ten minutes. As we approached the object, it was evident that it was NOT moving, but hovering directly over the freeway. Its light was lighting up the freeway and the surrounding fields, as a plane light would, but it was not moving! It was light like a search light it guess? About that bright. My assumption was that of a Harrier Jumpjet, but as we drove under the object, the was absolutely NO jet sound, and we did not notice a tail. The object was boomerag shaped, with green and red lights on the end of the "wings" I did not stop, as we were in a line of cars traveling together home to Portland OR, and as that my wife was petrified of the object, but everyone we were traveling with saw it, and could not explain it. I was not going to report it, as I thought that it was military considering the red and green lights on the ends, but there is no military base that I know of out there, and after hearing the womans report from Portland OR, on the Art Bell show of a triangular object in the sky with no sound, it sounded awfully familiar, and I though it was my duty to give the info I had, valid or not.
