Location: Silverton, OR
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|A brightly light object hoovered over tree farm near Silverton, Oregon tree farm at 2 am.
At about 2 am I saw an object that was triangular in shape and about the size of a large coast guard helicopter hovering about 100 feet off the ground about 200 yards away from my house.
The object made no noise and was covered with bright and brilliantly colored lights that included red, green, blue, white and orange. The lights were similar in brightness and intensity of those on police cars and other emergency vehicles. The lights were blinking like Christmas tree lights.
The object was hovering over fir tree seedling beds and for the first couple of minutes illuminated the tree seedling beds with a flood light.
After a couple of minutes I had thought of grabbing a camera and tripod, but this would be a hard shot in short notice.
The object started to sway side to side and up and down then very slowly moved to the south. The location here is 10 miles south of town in a remote area comprised of forest and tree farms. The latitude and longitude here Is 44’54.654 122’39.666.
I have a lot of training in emergency communications and emergency management and have active in the Amateur Radio Emergency Services for more than 20 years. This kind of event is not covered.
