Posted: 8/17/2018
Location: Chiloquin, OR
Shape: Oval
Duration:4-6 hours
Object seen over Chiloquin, Oregon At 9:59 am on 11 August 2018 I received a call from a former police officer friend who lives a couple miles from me. He stated he is looking at a strange white round object in the sky. He first spotted it at 6:30am.

After reaching his home, I observed this object in the southern sky at about 179 degrees south at an 65 degrees off the horizon. It was round, with which looked like 'hands of a clock at 6:10, and white in color. The longer we looked at it and tried getting photos, more details came out. Several photos were taken and drawing in more detail. There was a wind blowing from the north at about 10-15 mph, so the object was traveling from the southern direction to the north.

(See attached photo & drawing) By 1:30pm the object was at 347 degrees north from my resident at 85 degrees off horizon.  By 2:20pm it was out of my sight due to trees and a butte.  Altitude was hard to determine, as we are at 4300 feet, I would suspect the object was 10,000 or higher. Size, hard to say without a point of reference.

Both Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls and the weather center in  Medford, OR, have been called and message left.

It has been noted that an object like this has been reported by numerous states recently. Observation balloon, weather instruments or something else? At this time unknown.


((NUFORC Note: We suspect a high altitude balloon. We express our gratitude to Ron Wright for sharing the report. PD))
