|Disk w/dull reddish glow.
This report is submitted to Oregon UFO Research from the same witness who reported the 1-16-02 sighting from Portland.
Witness testimony... "I have attached some JPEG files that I made to document what I saw last night (2-11-02 8:30 P.M.). I was out on my usual walk with the dog (again) and I caught site of it out of the corner of my eye as it passed overhead. I was walking east (again) about 15 minutes into my walk when I spotted it. The object was passing over me (to the south slightly) on my right at what I thought was a low altitude maybe 1000 to 2500 feet. It was a reddish object, disc in shape. It passed over at a high rate of speed without noise. The dull reddish glow was at a low level until after it had gained a lot of altitude. At this point the glow became very bright like a light emitting diode red. It's path was to the east for about 5 seconds and then swooping vertical (circular shape became very noticeable) and the streaking off to the south in a split second. I saw whatever it was for only about 20 to 30 seconds before it disappeared. It was very clear and cold last night, the visibility was fabulous... stars all around and no clouds. I made the accompanying files with AutoCAD for documentation purposes only. I have talked to nobody nor have I showed these file to anyone.
OUFOR would like to thank this witness for the extra mile he went to document his sighting in such detail.
