A hovering object in the vicinity of "The Lady of the Mountains".

Travelling North on interstate 15, just past Butte on a streach of road going uphill. I noticed a sphere hovering very near a statue referred to as the "Lady of the Mountains". It was, what is commonly reguarded as, disk shaped with rounded dome and also rounded in a congruant fashion on the underside. Driving up the mountain I noticed that the craft was yellowish in color, gently changing it's hue to an orange and then back again. It remained stationary till I drove under and it disappeared due to my forward progress. Thinking it was one of those safety devices used to warn low fling aircraft of hi-tension wire in the area, I was not overly suspicious. As I was coming back using the same route on my return trip a few days later I would check it out as to placement of the devices. To my surprise on that return, day-trip this time, I encountered several grey vans with strange looking antennaes emmanating from them on the mountain overlooking Helena going south. What was even stranger were the personel. They were seemingly a bunch of "goodlooking" guys ages between 25 and 30 scurrying around in bluish-grey overalls. Going further south past Helena about 10 miles north of Butte, I again noticed similar vans with personel fitting the above description. Guess what? When I got to the place where I saw the object there were no high tension wires, nor were there any warning devices strung along any of the smaller cables crossing the hi-way at that point. Even stranger was the reoccurance of vans further to the south, before one reached the town of Dillon, Mont.
