Location: Lincoln City/Albany (between), OR
Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour
Sighted bright light about 35-40 degrees eastern sky that pulsed, dimming to barely visible, gradually increasing to bright again.

My husband and I were returning home from Lincoln City to Albany, Orgon about 2 a.m. 11/17/99, when we noticed a very bright, white light in about the location Jupiter had been a few weeks ago, but about 3 to 4 times as large and pulsating very slowly from extremely bright to so dim it was barely visible. It did not seem to move at all, just to hang in the same position. It was visible throughout the 75 mile trip, and we stopped at a gas station in Monmouth, Oregon, where the attendants also commented on it. It was very curious and not like any object we have seen it the night sky before.
