|lights in the night sky near Mount Piscah, Oregon
On the evening of June 17th, 2011 around 23:30 as I was at an outdoor festival at Mount Pisgah, Oregon, near Eugene, I noticed what appeared to be a very large, bright, white object in the western sky.
When I first noticed it, it was stationary and I thought it might be a planet, though it appeared to me larger than I have ever known a planet to appear.
I observed this object in a stationary position for about 10 seconds. As I watched, this object suddenly grew slightly larger with a flash of white light then immediately shrank down to the size of the surrounding stars.
As I kept my eye on it the small shape slowly begin moving upwards toward the zenith of the star field, faded away and was gone about 5 seconds after it started moving.
About 10 minutes later I noticed two very large, bright white objects in the southern sky. They appeared exactly as the first object did in brightness and size and they appeared to be about a hands width distance apart if I stretched my arm out in front of me. They were positioned vertically to one another.
I watched them in this stationary position for about 10 seconds. At that time they shrank down to the size of stars and then begin moving together toward the west very slowly. They appeared to move together as one unit, keeping an equal distance apart as they moved.
They grew dimmer and disappeared about 5 seconds after they started moving.
