Blueberry Size Glowing Orange Object going East, above the Columbia River at 3500-4000 ft. and a speed of approximately 150mph +.

On the night of July 4th, around 20:47 an object came into view as two friends and I saw a glowing orange object cross the sky going above the Columbia River. It appeared coming in from the South West at a very fast speed, than slowing to 150 mph or about the speed of a small plane. Its altitude was approximately 3,500-4,000 feet.

The size of the object was approximately the size of a blueberry or the end of your small finger and was glowing orange with a plasma haze around it.

The object was consistent with its trajectory vector and color as it traversed across the sky. Than it abruptly turned and accelerated in speed, going South East over Portland, OR, at a gradual increase in altitude until it was no longer seen. The sighting lasted approximately 2-3 minutes.
