Location of Sighting: Medford, Oregon
Date of Sighting: March 1, 2016
Time of Sighting: 8 PM PST
Description: At approximately 20:00 Pacific Standard Time on 3/1/16 I noticed a bright yellow light appear to the east of the constellation Orion from the vantage point of 42.348533,-122.836794. The object appeared to be an atmospheric anomaly. It was similar to an explosion in low Earth orbit. Approximately 5 minutes after that, a solid white light appeared on the lower horizon, passing westbound over the sky of North Medford at a high rate of speed. It’s elevation was approximately 750 feet AGL (above ground level). This solid white light traveled for a visible distance of 1 to 2 miles and then disappeared. It was heading in the direction of the prior observed anomaly in a linear path. No directional deviations were observed. Within the next 2 to 3 minutes, faint solid white lights were observed moving Southbound at a very high elevation in a linear path. These could have possibly been satellites, but the timing was very suspicious.
Response From Witness: Thanks William. I’m a trained observer (law enforcement) and haven’t seen anything this suspicious in the sky before.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
