Location: Shoshone, ID
Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
Saw strange light going in circles, then it shot up to space.

I was standing outside having a cigarette and I saw a light out of the corner of my eye, I looked over and watched the light lose altitude and become even with the horizon. It started moving North and going in circles.

After about 15-20 minutes of watching this thing go in circles and slowly move over the horizon, it took off straight up and I lost sight of it. I heard no sound at all. I would guess the object was 1/4-1/2 mile from me.
