Sighting Reports 2011Couple Takes Video of a Red Object
That Changed Directions in the Night Sky
Date of Sighting: September 25, 2011
Description: I WAS OUT BACK SMOKING A CIGARETTE AROUND 7:30 OR 8 SUNDAY THE 25TH OF SEPT. I ALWAYS SCAN THE SKY LOOKING FOR WEIRD STUFF SINCE THAT TYPE OF THING HAPPENS TO US QUITE A BIT. I WAS JUST ABOUT TO WALK IN THE HOUSE AND IN MY PERIPHERAL VISION TO THE LEFT SIDE I CAUGHT A GLYMPSE OF LIGHT. I LOOKED UP AND A HUGE ORANGE-ISH GREEN-ISH OBJECT JUST KIND OF FREE FLOATED. IT WASN'T MOVING FAST LIKE A METEOR, BUT TOOK IT'S TIME ALL THE WHILE GETTING BIGGER. I RAN INSIDE TO GET MY WIFE TO START RECORDING. WE HAD THE CAMERA AT THE READY HOPING TO GET A GLYMPSE OF THE FALLING SATELLITE ON SATURDAY. MY WIFE STARTED FILMING AS I WAS CALLING MY MOM AND TELLING HER TO LOOK IN THE DIRECTION OF MY HOUSE. THIS OBJECT WAS TRAVELING FROM WEST TO EAST AND THEN TURNED TO GO NORTH. IT IS ONLY A 47 SECOND VIDEO AND TOWARDS THE END IT WAS TRAILING OUT.
Comments Received September 29, 2011: I have been watching the same thing all month (Portland, Oregon). It seems to rotate light colors with the white light being the brightest. It's so strange it seems to almost follow the stars, but not exactly. It drifts almost. Tonight my boyfriend and I saw 2 at Larch MT. This is so strange. I'd love to know what it is.
