Description (In Witness's Own Words): About three days ago. My friend was taking me home from work, I work graveyard shift so it was daylight at this time about 8:00 in the morning. The locatin was Albany Oregon. The sky was clear. I looked toward the sky and saw a trail of smoke. I said to my friend, Look A skywriter! But she had to drive and pay attention to the road. She didn't see it. I saw this white glowing object, shaped like a cigar. I thought it was the Space Shuttle. It eased through the sky. I said Look at that! When we almost wrecked into another car, she said what? I said The Space Shuttle! It wasn't natural. I never saw a skywriter glow! I don't think the Space Shuttle glows either! Although we were shakin up A bit by our near miss accident, we made it to my house, and I could still see it while she was driving off. I watched it fly through the sky, then disappear! I don't know if she saw it, but I think she did. That is what almost caused us to wreck into another vehicle. It scared her and me too! It wasn natural! It Glowed! I'm just glad she got me home safe!

Second Report by Witness (In Response to Investigator Questions): We Were traveling South on 99. My friend was taking me home. I don't think she saw it, but as I said in the report we almost wrecked into another vehicle so maybe she did see it. Must have taken her attention from the road or I interested her by talking about what I was looking at in the sky. The object in question was moving North on 99 clearly visible to me. Maybe it was a test object. I don't know. It made no sound. It just cruised through the sky. It was no meteor, and it wasn't a plane like I thought it was nor was it a skywriter! It was Glowing! Keep in touch, and I will talk to my friend and see if she actually saw it too. Have A great day. I love your site,

Investigator's Notes: I initially thought that the witnesses saw a meteor or "falling space junk", but given that the witness still had the object in sight after she arrived home would rule out these causes due to the length of time of the sighting. Whatever the witnesses saw was flying below 10,000 feet given the weather conditions. Visibility was also somewhat restricted in fog so the object was probably within a few miles of the witnesses. Given available information I don't know what the witnesses saw.
