Yellow to Golden Orange object moving over central Eugene, appeared just smaller than a lentil at arms length, moving slowly west to east across partly cloudy sky. I watched the object pass between the moon and myself and saw no physical body just the glowing globe and a slight residual light trailing upward. I ran to a nearby friends house and she saw it as well, then the object pulsated between bright and dim four times and streaked out of sight EastNE with amazing speed!

I was in route to a friends house about ten blocks from downtown Eugene and noticed what I first thought to be a star or planet that was an interesting yellow/orange color, upon closer observation, the object appeared to be moving from west to east across the night sky, but made no sound. I crossed the street to situate myself where I could watch the object pass the moon. As it passed, I saw that there was no physical body to the object outside of the glowing ball and a slight residual light (same color) trailing upward. I ran the remainder of the way to my friends house and got her to come outside as well. The object was now some distance across town to the east, but still visable. After aproximately five seconds, the object began to pulsate between a brillant light and fading out four times and then took off in a flash EastNE with amazing speed, leaving a meteorite like streak trailing behind it.
