Odd ship that changed shapes, then back to original round shape, possible lights on it.

My niece called me from Nampa, Idaho, and asked me if I could go outside and see if I could see what she was seeing in the sky, I live in Boise, Idaho, approximately 20 miles away.

I went out in the backyard and looked toward the southwest, and it only took me a minute or two to spot it. It looked like a white shiny sort of ball-shape ship of some kind floating through the air, way up high. My only camera is my Galaxy S6 smartphone, so I started taking photos. This white ball moved quietly through the air above me for about 40 minutes. I took many photos of it through clouds and a background of bright blue sky. It seemed to be on a northeastern path, exactly toward Bogus Basin Ski area in the Boise Mountains above where we live.

As I was taking photos, I noticed that this ball changed from the single big white ball to a single smaller ball then two balls the three balls in a triangle shape, then a purplish looking tube shape, then a couple of odd shapes before it went back to the bigger single white ball shape. When my niece sent me photos of this ball shaped thing in the sky, it wasn't really a ball shape, but she was taking pictures through a high power telescope lens. This was really an odd thing to see in the daylight. We have alot of ships or?, they are in the Bogus Basin area at night I have watched them until 6:15 am, they are there every night starting about 1:30am. They move super fast, darting around, bouncing up and down, zigzagging and doing perfect square patterns in the sky. They are super bright glittery ball shapes that are so high up that they are about the size of the head of a pin.
