Location: Boise, ID
Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
Red, slowly pulsating light, that hovered in the north for twenty minutes.

I was sitting on my patio listening to the Boise State-Fresno game ( I don't have ESPN) at around 11:00 pm 9/18/09, and looking north I noticed a small bright red light . As I watched it hover in mostly one spot (it did slowly drift to the west) it would get brighter and then fade slowly. It slowly pulsated this way the whole time I watched it for about twenty minutes. It finally just faded away altogether like it was moving away north at what would have to be a high rate of speed.

I doubt any one else in Boise witnessed this because most would be watching the game on TV. BSU football is that big here. This object looked like no aircraft I've ever seen or heard of. I couldn't tell how far or altitude but if I had to guess, I would say it was very high in the sky and fairly far, because it was pretty much just a spot of light. I wanted to get my wife and video camera but didn't want to miss what it might do. I will be watching your site to see if anyone else spotted this.
