Light orb over Lincoln City, Or.

About 9:35 PT in Lincoln City, OR, my daughter and I took the dog out for a break before bedtime. While we were waiting for the dog to do its thing, I noticed an odd glowing orb/circle in the sky traveling north to south almost parallel to the coastline. The object moved at a fast pace and was much closer than the stars.

I thought at first this was a plane and patiently waited for it to pass overhead but instead it just stopped in the sky at about 75 degrees from my point of view It flickered a lot and had an orange color but also some yellow to it. It pulsed.

I swear something dropped from it but I'm not certain. I saw something fall but my daughter did not.

As we watched the stationary light it started to flicker abruptly then turned to the west and slowly started to fade away as if it was going up.

This was no plane. Fortunately my daughter was with me and witnessed this as well.

This all lasted about 4 minutes.

I kept periodically going outside that evening looking for this light but it never returned.
