Location: Eugene, OR
Shape: Changing
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
After exiting my garage on my way to the car, my eye caught something odd in the night sky. I observed what seemed to be an object with a haze of lights moving in from the west. The closer the lights came the more it became brighter and more hazey. Once the object was at it's closest point my wife mentioned that she thought it was egg shaped, and made the comment," It is strange, isn't it!". The object appeared to shift off to the NW and headed off at an even speed, not too fast but with no sound and moving a bit faster than planes I've witnessed at night. I managed to shoot about 6 digital shots seeming we were headed to a Xmas gathering and I had my digital camera. After I took the shots the object continued to the NW. Not sure what I saw. I can't really trust a digital camera in lowlight with no flash, but, I'll submit a few pics anyway. The pictures are interesting.
