Triangle Craft seen moving West over Pocatello Idaho seen as a Pinkish glow against the cloudy night sky.

August 29, 2014 I live in Pocatello, Idaho. Approximately 70 miles North of Utah and 70 miles West of Wyoming.

I am setting up my camera Nikon D7000 with Nikon 300mm f 2.8 manual lens, a large lens and heavy. Manual settings pre-set on my camera. I was ready, at just a couple minutes before 9:00 pm. I make my way out into my driveway where I set up my camera on a tripod and a chair to start the waiting game of Sky watching, I barely had the camera set in place when I looked up, it was a cloudy but warm evening. The clouds were less than a mile up, lots of room between me and the clouds but they were not real high, the city lights could light them up a little. When I am outside I have to look to the sky, it is impossible for me to not look up, I always feel as though I am being watched from up there, weird I know, but so am I.

So I look up towards the East over my house, just below the clouds is a Pinkish light moving very slowly due West, I immediately jumped on the camera thinking, (Couldn't you wait till I got set up?) I started snapping picture's, I took 32 pictures of it as it moved across the sky. I had to reposition the camera a few times because I can only take so many pictures before the object moves out of the frame, and with a 300 mm lens the field of view is rather small. While taking pictures and looking through the viewer I saw a Red light flash and I thought to myself, that I was wasting my time taking picture's of an airplane or Jet plane. So I stopped and looked at the pictures I just took on the camera because I could enlarge them, that's when I saw the light formation with the large light in the center, now I knew this was not a plane, and looked back up to find the object and continue photographing. Big Mistake on my part because the object was gone, and I didn't see how i! t could have disappeared, either it went up into the clouds or it shot off at high speed, because it was right up in front of me. I can and would be excited about forwarding my picture's to you via email.

Mine is a very short story but I have pictures and that says it all.

As far as I can tell the craft is a Triangle, it has a Bluish light on 3 sides with a larger Redish light in the center. I am guessing because the craft was at least a mile from me when I say it in the dark, it had to be somewhere 30 to a 100 feet in size. I could not make out detail of the craft or it's shape, because it was dark up in the sky, but the pictures lead one to believe it is of a Triangular shape
