UFO outside Twin Falls- 2002 500 Lights On Object0: Yes

In August of 2002, my husband and I were on the first leg of our roadtrip honeymoon. We left Seattle in the morning, and around 11 p.m. we decided to look for a motel in Twin Falls, ID.

We saw road signs indicating that Twin Falls was within a few miles, so we began looking for the exit. And we looked. And we looked. And we realized we had driven way too far, and must have missed it somehow, so we turned around and headed back the way we’d come.

Ahead of us, we saw something that at first appeared to be an airplane in the distance, but its flight pattern and speed seemed off. The light came close enough for us to see the underside of the object, and we both knew instantly that it was a UFO. The lights on the underside were rotating.

The object never got close enough for us to determine its shape. We parked on the side of the road and watched as the object moved across the sky and disappeared behind some mountains. Then we got in the car and continued to drive towards Twin Falls.

It turns out we had indeed missed Twin Falls, and we had also somehow failed to see 2 exit signs. We weren’t paying close enough attention to the time, so I’m not sure if we were missing time, but we could never figure out how 2 people who were looking could fail to see 2 exit signs.
