Location: Lewiston, ID
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 10+minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
3 sets of lights (changing color) in a triangle formation moving slowly over Lewiston valley.

On the way to work noticed 3 sets of unfamilier looking lights moving slowly over valley W/NW (towards Moscow),they formed a triangle formation . I stopped my vehicle and got out to get a better look. It was hazy and the ambiant light from valley was making it hard to see any detail other than the lights that were changing color constantly. I got the feeling it was one object at the time but was not sure ,I could not see any mass between the lights. The sets of lights appeared the same color with a white center light changing to a light but bright blue, with what apeared to be rotating or flasing lights around it (they were changing from red ,green, yellow ).I got back in my vehicle and headed on to work , this was the same general direction the lights were moving. I parked my vehicle and walked to a wall that blocked a lot of the light surround my work facility. I again could see the lights which had moved on farther towards Moscow (and above the Snake River Canyon). The perspective of the lights seemed to change but it was from the greater distance (I still believe it was a triangle shaped object but at a greater distance from me). The distance was greater and so was the haze but the direction of the object changed slightly as almost following the river. For a moment I thought the lights broke formation or atleast changed formation but I think it was the object changing dirrection. I watched as the lights faded out in the haze and lights .Just before it faded out I was able to guess altitude at about the same as the top of the Snake River canyon . The object was first seen by me just past and above the Lewiston airport(west) and was last seen above the Snake River past the port facilities that are on the north side of river and west of Lewiston. In 10 plus minutes the object moved about 10 miles in around 10 minutes at best. I had not reported this until reading report of students sighting in Moscow just over an hour later, it seemed that the sightings might relate????
