Duration:2 minutes
Orange fireball in West Boise. May have landed near Cole street. No noise,

I didn’t actually see the UFO, it was my son. He doesn’t want to report it. It kind of freaked him out. But I thought it should be reported. He doesn’t know I’m doing this.

My son couldn’t sleep on the night of 6/24/15, so he stepped outside and sat on the porch for a while. It was a warm night.

After a while he saw an orange fireball in the sky. He thought it was a meteor at first. But it was coming down towards the house and slowing down. It made no noise at all. He watched as it got lower and lower and he lost sight of it when it was very, very close to the ground. There were big bushes between him and the craft. He believes it landed because it was so low. There’s an empty field behind his house and he thinks that’s where it landed. He was too scared to stay out and watch.

I asked him why he didn’t peek through the bushes and see, and he said he was too afraid. I asked him if he could see people or anything inside the craft. He said the light was too bright.

The house I located in Boise on Cole Street. The nearest cross street is Ustick.
