Duration: 20 to 30 minutes
No of observers: 2

Location: Hatcreek Campground (Near), CA, USA

Shape: Rectangle
Characteristics: Lights on object

Watched the object cross diagonally across the sky over our car, drove up a logging road to see where it went..It was HUGE, rectangular and it had lights all around the edge only...It was quiet, very quiet and moved quite slowly from the direction of Mt. Shasta, south towards Redding

On or about the 14th of November 1979, my friend Vic and I were headed towards Susanville from Medford Oregon, on our way to Reno (Vic had a job interview), it was around 10pm.. Vic had a convertable and it was an unusually warm evening so we had the top down... In the area of Hat Creek Campground, on Highway 89, I was leaning back with my head on the back of the front seat when I saw a HUGE object moving diagonally over the highway above us.. I was saying Oh my God, and Vic was trying to see what I was looking at while trying to keep the car on the road.. When he realized what I was looking, he immediately pulled over to the side of the road.. For about a half a minute we watched it fly over the woods to our right, and almost out of sight, so Vic said "Let's follow it".. We found a logging road and drove up until we reached the edge of a canyon..We sat on the top of the back of the front seats and just watched the huge, silent, rectangular object with lights that went all all around the edge of it, (I can't remember if they were in color).. When we realized that if we could see them, then they could see us, we decided to leave the area...It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my life.. I never reported this to anyone of authority for obvious reasons.. ((Name deleted))Medford Oregon
