Fast and middle-low flying Boomerang with 3 lights and no sound !

It was 5:05AM in the morning and pretty dark outside. I was standing in the backyard and smoking a cigarette.

I watched the sky 'cause of the fantastic star panorama and I could see satellites passing the sky.

I was watching straight up as I suddenly noticed a dark object in the sky. The object was definitely darker than the sky and had 3 lights -- short flashing. I would say the light were red, orange. Difficult to determine in that short time.

The object looked like a boomerang. The light were on each side of the boomerang and one in the front. However, this object moved into east south-east (ESE) direction which is also the direction of Boise Airport.

I followed with my eyes this object and it looked like to me that this object reduced of a moment its speed and speeded up again. There were no sound - and no visible engine activities.

My first thought was: way too fast for a plane...to slow for a meteorite.

The complete scenario last for approx. 3 to 4 seconds.
