Posted: 9/25/2015
Location: Bandon, OR
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Red and white light flying erratically and very fast

Saw a sphere of light which randomly oscillated between red and white with no apparent pattern or timing. It was difficult to tell whether it was small and close to me (1/4 mile) or large and very far away.

It hovered in place for 10 to 15 seconds, then descended in a very rapid spiral pattern almost to the horizon. It then immediately zoomed back up to its original altitude, where it proceeded to move in random figure-eight patterns, gaining and losing altitude rapidly. It moved very quickly - approximately the same speed as someone playing with a laser pointer (except I saw no beam and it was larger than the point of a laser).

It continued its dance for about 4 to 5 minutes until it disappeared behind some trees in the distance.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke at length via telephone with the witness, and we found him to be exceptionally eloquent and objective, in his description of the sighting. We suspect that he is a very good witness. PD))
