Location: Albany, OR
Shape: Egg
Duration:5 minutes
In the early evening, I saw a white, egg-shaped object making its way across the sky.

Me, my sister, and my brother were sitting on the front porch of our house in the evening during the summer. I remember it was quite warm. One of us looked over to the west and saw an object flying across the sky, north to south. It was at about a 50 degree angle from the ground. The object had an oval, egg shape. It looked white and had no appendages (wings, etc.) that we could see. There were no other details or colors that were apparent on the outside of it. It wasn't too far into the sky so that we were missing details or anything. It was close enough to the ground so that we could see it clearly. It had a faint hint of a contrail coming out of the end of it but it disappeared almost as soon as it came out. It wasn't rushing but moved at a steady pace until it it disappeared from view to the south of us.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. We wonder whether the object might have been a high-flying jet aircraft with a short contrail behind it, but that is pure conjecture. PD))
