National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report

Location: Pocatello, ID
Shape: Light
Duration: 3 minutes
White lights popping into view, moving a short distance in the sky and popping out of sight.

I was taking my dog outside and happened to look to the Northeast sky, about level with the telephone lines in the back alley, but far up in the distant still dark sky when the first white dot kind of just popped into view and was moving in a North to eastward direction for a short distance and disappeared, then another one would pop out into view moving to the same disappearing view point. They moved faster than a plane or orbiting object that Iíve seen before, but somewhat at a slower pace or patterned movement, but not a drone if you can understand that. I counted about 6 dots of light and one (about the fourth in the row) appeared to have a red and white light to it (but not blinking like a plane would), the rest were just white dots of light. They seemed to all move in the same direction for a short distance and then popped out of view one at a time, as they were seen above the tree line but very distant in the early morning dark night sky. It was exciting to see but in! a different location from the last ones I saw.
