Duration:2 minutes
Round bright object in night sky emitted light beams across the sky three times. The beams lasted for one to two seconds.

On the evening of Saturday, August 10, 2013, my wife and I spotted a round, bright white light object travelling across the sky. The time was approximately 10:00pm to 10:30pm. The object was moving south. We were camping at Lion Head camp ground on the north end of Priest Lake in Coolin, Idaho. When we spotted the object.

At the time, we were gazing into the sky watching shooting stars, meteorites, and other marvels of the sky. When I noticed the bright object, I had my wife look at it because I knew there was something unusual about it. In fact, I said, "There...look...a UFO."

The object was travelling at a higher speed than any plane I've seen before and there was no blinking lights or any other alternative explanation. It was simply an unidentified flying object. While my wife still doubted what she was looking at, the object shot a beam of light, perhaps a laser, the width of the object, all the way across the sky, miles in length, to a point we could not see due to trees blocking our view. The beam of light lasted for approximately a second or two. I said, "Whoa! Did you see that?!?" And my wife did! The object shot the beam of light the same direction two more times, but to two different locations across the sky.

We continued to watch the object move across the sky hoping to see more unexplainable displays from the object, but more campers showed up with their car shining its headlights near our direction, which distracted us from watching the object much longer.

That same night, I witnessed various objects moving across the sky that would sometimes disappear while watching. Some may say that I saw satellites. However, the objects moved way too fast to be satellites. I've seen satellites move across the sky, and these objects appeared to move 10 times as fast.

I've seen UFO's before, but for some reason I feel this sense of apprehension to talk about what I've witnessed. I even felt apprehensive about reporting what my wife and I saw. She doesn't even talk about it. However, I found this UFO reporting site online and I feel it is alright to share what I witnessed when so many other people have witnessed various unidentified objects as well.
