Location: Swan Falls/Kuna, ID
Shape: Formation
Duration:1-2 hours
3-7 small "stars" that moved across the sky in various formations for 2 hours

my friend and i were sitting in the bottom of the snake river canyon, about 1-2 miles west/southwest of the swan falls dam (south of kuna, idaho). there was virtually no clouds ... and the area we were in was around the corner (of the canyon) from the dam, so we did not have any man-made light obscuring our view of the sky. we were watching the stars, and would notice the occasional satellite streak across the sky ... but we noticed one ... then two ... of these 'satellites' stop, change direction, and continue on. after awhile, we noticed more ... they were all either directly above us or to the northeast a bit. the objects looked alot like stars ... but moving ... which is why we mistook them for satellites. if they were aircraft, they were VERY high -- much higher than normal jets/airliners/planes ... and since the objects frequently stopped or changed direction (reverse, 90-degree and 45-degree angles), we did not believe they were regular aircraft. these objects would also change colour ... from a faint white to a faint pink, faint blue, or faint green. when they were stationary, they seemed to be floating like kites ... in one place, but wiggling from side to side (much as a kite would when held in the air by the wind) ... and would sometimes dart a short distance. we viewed at least 3 of the objects travelling quite a far across the sky, but some of the others just seemed to appear ... and would fade away from time to time. we thought perhaps these were just stars & our eyes had been deceiving us, but when viewed between other stars (which were stationary), we could definitely see movement. at one point we watched 3 of the objects move across the sky toward each other, where they paused in a small triangle (best way to describe it) we watched these for about 2 hours ... then they each faded away. a few days later we brought 2 other friends into the canyon with us, but did not see anything similar. i'm not sure of the exact date -- i am positive it was in july 1992 ... i'd written down everything back when it happened, but i can't seem to find my notebook. i do remember that we did not see the moon that night.
