Albany is in Western Oregon About 25 Miles South of Salem.

Date of Sighting: April 19, 2011
Time of Sighting: 1:40 AM PDT
Location of Sighting: Albany, Oregon (See Map)

Description: I saw something last night that seemed too strange and curious to be a plane, helicopter, planet, a star or a satellite. First of all I felt a strange sense of energy or sensation that woke me up around 1:40 AM and I have windows in the upstairs bedroom that faces south. I remember when I first went to bed, the moon was to the Southeast of this later object I will be seeing. During the sighting the moon moved to the Southwest of this object. I saw a moving lighted object in the south sky like a distant helicopter or something. It shot up very rapidly vertically or sometimes horizontally and in circles. Sometimes it looked like it was heading north towards me, but at other times, east and west. I sat up and continued to observe this moving light for an hour and a half. It didn't seem to go away for the duration of the time I watched it. I never thought to take my phone camera to take a picture of it. The lack of a photo weakens my case that I really saw this object. Because I was upright in bed, my husband asked what is going on. I told him calmly I was watching a curious pattern of a moving object in the distant southern sky. He continued to sleep. I seemed to be alone, with these sightings and need help finding others that may have seen this single lighted object erratically moving in that location. I checked the local news and did not find others that saw what I saw last night. If you have been informed and can verify that they are not crazy I would like to know if the sighting was already documented.

Note: A similar sighting occurred around the time of the above sighting in Beaverton, Oregon. Beaverton is about 70 miles North of Albany.
