Sighting Reports 2008

Woman Sees Bright Flashing Orb Flying Low in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: April 11, 2008
Time of Sighting: 9:30 PM PDT
Date Sighting Reported: April 14, 2008
Duration of Sighting: About Five Seconds
Location of Sighting: Cottage Grove, Oregon (W-Central OR About 16 MI S. of Eugene)
Latitude: 43.81 Degrees North
Longitude: 123.04 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: At Least Two. (Exact Number Unknown)
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Weather: Clear Skies. Visibility 10 Miles. Winds Were From the North at 5 MPH.

Description: It appeared out of no where. We were driving on the freeway on a low mountain or hill. There were three lights and then one. It looked like the color of a camera flash. It was like a bright round orb light and it kept flashing. It was way too low to be an airplane and too big of a light for it to be airplane lights. It came down a little further in the air and then took off behind us. Within 5 seconds it was so far away we could barely see it.

Comments: Initially I thought that the witnesses saw an iridium flare satellite, but given the brief time that the light was seen rules out this explanation. A similar report was received on the same date from Auburn, Washington. Click here to read this report.
