White ball of light traveling at high rate of speed vanishes over southern Boise, Idaho.

At approximately 20:45 last night as my husband watched TV he noticed a brilliant white ball of light drop from the sky through our half moon window above our fireplace.

We watch planes approaching our airport through this window, but he said this object was different. There were no flashing lights associated with this ball of light and it was brilliant white. He said it was the brightest white light he's ever seen and it had no tail. The object moved at a high rate of speed and dropped straight down and out of sight in the direction of South Boise.

From my husband's vantage point it was the size of a baseball.

After hearing that another person reported a UFO sighting in North Boise a few days ago, we wondered if others witnessed this white fireball.
