On July 23, 2018, I was tent camping with my bride at Cape Mears, Oregon. Our camping site was a stone throw from the ocean. The night was foggy and very misty as the valley was having a heat wave.

At 4:50 am. we were awakened by a strange animal like sound. I walked out and looked over the ocean and saw two bright orbs, about the size of a basketball, over the ocean. I immediately thought it was two boats in trouble as it was so close to shore.

Looking closer, it was obvious that it wasn’t a boat because the lights weren’t bobbing up and down, but solid. The lights would turn and face shore then out to sea turning almost like looking around. As soon as my wife showed, a third orb appeared. Next, as we stood in awe, the lights moved quickly further out into the ocean. Moving quickly, then pausing every now and then. They then started moving south toward the rocky cape and disappeared into the night. The entire event lasted about four minutes.


We spoke via telephone with the witness, and found him to be quite sincere, and sober-minded. We suspect he is a highly reliable witness. PD
