|Blinking, bright white light seen travelling at high altitude
We stepped outside into the backyard in West Eugene and saw a bright white light that was steadily blinking. It was odd... aircraft generally have one solid white light with a red and green on each side. There was no noise... just a white light that blinked steadily. It moved steadily across the sky, directly overhead, and moved behind some high, very thin clouds. At this point, it disappeared.
I stepped out into the front yard to scan the sky in the direction it was travelling. It never reappeared! It travelled about the speed of a low-altitude plane, but was as high in the sky as a jetliner.
The light was brighter than a jet would be. Strange!
I have been a field investigator for 18 years. I've spent much of this time investigating Bigfoot reports for Oregonbigfoot.com, of which I am the director. However, I've spent many years following up on UFO reports as well. I'm very aware of the appearance of planes and jets at all altitudes. This did NOT have the appearance of those.
I would add that there have been two occasions in the last few months that my research partner and I have been up near Oakridge, Oregon and have seen steady, bright white, soundless craft moving across the sky. I captured these on film on one occasion.
