Location of Sighting: Independence, Oregon
Date of Sighting: July 4, 2021
Time of Sighting: 4:25 PM PDT
Description: I was driving, it was daylight and the sky was blue and clear. My passenger and I were discussing time as we were late for our event. I looked at the car clock and said we were 23 minutes late (meant to be there at 4:00, hence 4:23 PM). As we were driving, there is a straight stretch of road where 2 fruit fields are, immediately before driving up onto bridge going into Independence. I looked up and saw a small cloud that seemed very odd shaped, domed top, slighted lesser domed bottom and the sides sloped down/up into ‘points.’ It was very “classic” flying saucer shaped, only it was white and looked slightly “cloud-like”. I jokingly said to my passenger “um – is that a cloaked UFO cloud?”I noticed that my passenger was leaning forward in her seat, looking up to the left of the “cloud and remarked overlapping me “hey there’s something like glinting up there, but nothing’s THERE.” And then we looked at the cloud again and it was gone, nothing but blue sky. We looked for the shiny glinting spot and it too had disappeared – both in a matter of under about 3 to 5 seconds. I didn’t even have time to ask my passenger to take a picture with my phone. It was EXTEMELY fast. The cloud shape was directly over south Independence and looked to be around the areas of Talmadge Road and Stapleton Road vicinity of south Independence in the farm/country, but could be clearly seen as we approached the bridge.
Note: The witnesses could have seen a Lenticular cloud. These clouds are frequently mistaken for disk shaped UFO’s.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
