I was in Meridian, ID for business staying at the Best Western hotel. I had just got back to the hotel and when I got out of my car I saw a bright light in the sky to the NW.... I thought it was a plane because the light was so bright but it wasn't moving, it was just hovering across Meridian Ave. After hovering for about 2 minutes it started moving SE towards my position. The first time it completely disappeared during the video it went behind a telephone pole... then as it moved SE / E direction it was mostly blocked from visibility because of a tree... when it emerged from behind the tree it looked sort of metallic with a bright light in the 'front' and a smaller dimmer light in the 'rear' (front and rear references based on direction of travel)... it continued to move towards the East and went behind a shopping center sign and a parking lot light and then finally behind some trees to the E direction and ultimately those trees blocked any further view/filming of the object. Honestly I don't know what it was... I don't believe it was a plane or helicopter because it seemed like it was only a couple hundred yards away from me and I didn't hear any noise at all from it. There also weren't any blinking lights which I always see when I see planes/helicopters flying in the night sky. I'm very interested to know if there were any other reported sightings on this day and this time in Meridian, ID and I am very interested to hear professional opinions about the video I captured (taken using my Samsung Galaxy S3 -- sorry for the shakey video!) I'm also including a map with a red 'X' that represents my position (facing NE) and blue 'X' that represents the position of the object when I first saw it and a black line that represents the path it traveled to the best of my knowledge :o)
