Location: Corvallis, OR
Shape: Other
Duration:1-2 seconds
White, illuminated cresent seen at high velocity, lit up cloud, no sound.

I saw the object, which was a completely luminous white crescent, to the north of me fly from east to west. I caught it out of the corner of my eye. It happened so fast! I wish I could have viewed it longer. Anyways, it made no sound and it never changed color. It partially illumnated a cloud bank as it flew into it. As I said, it was shaped like a crescent, but the lower end was shorter, giving it the look of a cuvry boomerang at an etreme angle. People tell me, "It must be a rocket, or a jet afterburner," but I know it wasn't. I used to live in St. Cloud FL. and see the space shuttle lift off, illuminating the whole horizon and jet planes flying overhead, heading to and from the air force base. I know that it wasn't a plane or a rocket or anything else.
