|Bright, amber object in the sky with brilliant, glittering, colored lights throughout.
We were heading home, driving up a 1 mile hill about 4 miles out of town. Out of my windshield a bright object caught my eye. It was nearly overhead. I carefully pulled over because it was a steep embankment on the side of the road and there was a car on my tail. I was pretty excited because I knew it wasn’t an object we normally see in the sky at night. I told my wife, “look, a UFO!” I rolled the window down and sat on the door looking up. There was a low, fog layer, with the base about 300 feet above our head. The object was directly beneath it. It was also lighting up the fog above it. If I stick my hand out arms length, I would say it was about a nickel size in diameter. It was round and had a brilliant amber color. There were bright, LED looking lights, glittering throughout it. I couldn’t tell exactly where the lights were oriented on it, but they were brilliant. There was no sound and it was moving very, very, slowly S.E. to N.W. I watched it for about 30 seconds. At arms length it moved just a few inches in the sky. The car behind us pulled up next to our car and asked if we were OK. I said, “We are fine. We are looking at that light”. I pointed up to the object and saw that it was rising/fading into the base of the fog layer. The person in the car said, “Oh” and just took off. We watched it for just 15-30 seconds longer and the light disappeared in the clouds/fog. There was no sound from it. My wife and I are both well eduacated and have encountered several credible U.F.O.’s in the past, one in this area, one 20 miles away, and two in Eastern Oregon. We are always looking up for the next one.
P.S. Please e-mail me back on this. There is more to the story, especially up to the few nights prior, previous visitation history, and incidents last night when we returned home.
