Location: La Grande (10 miles east of), OR
|A very slow moving brightly lit object crossed I-84 north to south about 150-200 feet above road and disappeared into mountains south of us
The object appeared to be 50 feet long, the body could not be seen, but there were 4 roughly square windows equally spaced over one long thin rectangular window. there were no running lights, or flashing lights. No bridge over us and we could hear no engine sound other than the truck engine even with the truck windows open. the windows were bright but opaque. The object flew over us at 10-15 miles an hour in a straight line. My partner was sitting in the passenger seat, and was talking on the CB radio with some other drivers on the road who also saw the object. I am a retired Army sergeant who taught aircraft recognition. I have never seen this configuration on any aircraft.We have been driving truck together for 5 years. I was 50, she 49. The object was also seen by two ladies driving from Portland Or, to Lubbock TX, who were also on the CB radio, and 3 other truck drivers.
