Hello Sir I just saw the end of a show where I got your website name, sadly I forgot yours, just that you sit in the corner and run this yourself.

My report well rather late than never?

I was moving to my new rental house on the night before 9-11 happened, that is the only reason I remember the date of my sighting.

Looking skyward south in rural McMinnville Oregon around 11 PM, I saw a light moving laterally nothing any airplane wouldn’t do, (no flashing lights, steady white) when it stopped that got my attention, after a brief pause it began to "float" downward side to side like a leaf falling from a tree (so many UFO sightings are said to do this).

Next it headed laterally in the opposite direction for less distance than the first viewing, stopped again floated side to side downward then proceeded laterally back in the original direction.

It exhibited this type of movement three or four times then appeared to move upwards growing fainter as it went, I do not know if was a elevation increase or a distance increase until it was so faint as it was difficult to tell from the background stars, so I want back to my un-packing.

I know McMinnville Oregon has its own UFO sighting BS and I did not want to get into a loony bin of idiots so I just forgot about it.

Later I had two of my neighbors tell me about another sighting they had on a different date, which I will not relate this to you for this would be second hand information.
