UFO SPOTTED IN SOUTHEASTERN IDAHO IN RECENT YEARS

I do not remember the exact day or year of this event, but I estimated as closely as I could. I was driving one night in Southeastern Idaho and I was northbound on I-15, shortly after i passed the small city of Malad, I saw something falling out of the sky to the west of me. There were larger bright lights , also there was a cluster of smaller lights as well. It reminded me of a shooting star at first, but there were too many lights and it didn't appear to be all that far away. I thought maybe it was an aircraft crashing, although It vaished and I do not know whether it ever hit the ground or not. So as soon as I could get to a phone, I called the Bannock County Sheriff's Office in Pocatello to report the possibility of a crashed aircraft. They imformed me that they had received NO report of any aircraft crashing in the area. Alot of time has passed since then and i hadn't given it alot of thought, thinking it was something that could be easily explained, but today I shared this eposide with a friend and he imformed me that alot of UFO's had been spotted in the surrounding area and that he too had witnessed UFO's in that area along with his son and a man in another vehicle who had stopped along the freeway to observe three UFO's in the air. If anyone else had observed UFO's in that area in the counties of Oneida, Power, Bannock, or Cassia Counties, please email me at ((address deleted--please submit report to NUFORC, so witness can read your report here.
