What happen in barview jetty oregon 1996

It was eveing time as six of us were in a mini van. we pulled up to the end of the jetty were we had watched the sun set. We has started a camp fire on the beach and hung out for a few hours as it got dark. When we had packed up, I went to the mouth of the tillamook bay into the ocean and noticed a very elevated bay and thousands of ripple like bay, by far no waves I have ever seen. I called my brother and cousin and the other few friends that was with us at the time to look. At first we thought it was the beagaining of a sunami. One other we sere with saw a light about 600 yard out in the ocean were it was hidden by fog or steam like clouds. we all got alittle dissorientaed and watched the light for a few minutes, in awe. It was like we were spell bound as we were stuned and could not move, when the light had dissapered into the ocean, the ripples went away and the steam like clouds dissapated. My brother Had whent into the van to get the spot light, and shined it to were we seen this light. there was no sign of anything, no boat no light house nothing. One of my friends I was with looked down as he had peed his pants and said "Holy shit, It is 1 in the morning". two to three hours had went by from the few minutes from watching this light. We all freaked out and left back to Tillamook. The next day watching the news this light was seen all up in down the west coast, from Vancouver B.C., Washington, Oregon, California and Mexico. With millions of call ins of the sighting no anwser was given to this date. I am courious as to were those two/three hours went that only seemed like minutes sent and what happen. I know I will die with out knowing, yet knowing we are not alone.
