Name: AD

Date of Sighting: August 19, 2009

Location of Sighting: Sisters, Oregon

Shape(s) of UFO(s) (If Known): Looked like a bright star – a bit larger perhaps. Emitted a bright light in 4 beams.

Color(s) of UFO(s) (If Known): White

Number of UFO(s) (If Known): 1

Distance of UFO(s) in sky (If Known): edge of atmosphere

Direction of Travel for UFO(s) (If Known): west to east

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): other stars were dimmer, since it was nearly dawn – maybe 4:30 AM. Abut the size and brightness fo a reall bright sar – like the evening star or northstar at their brightest.

Further Description of Sighting: We were camping, my dog barked at something, waking me up. Our tent has a net roof, so we can see whole sky. It was neary dawn, and only the brightest stars were still visible (maybe 4:30 AM?). The sky was noticeably lighter near the eatern horizon.

I was waiting to go back to sleep when I noticed a star-like object that was brighter and closer than the other stars and was traveling straight and steady west to east across the sky. The speed was like an airplane, only no flashing lights like a plane would have (and no noise).

As it reached the 45 degree angle point in the eastern part of the sky, it suddenly stopped moving and got MUCH brighter. It also briefly emitted 4 beams of white light off each corner – this only lasted about 1-2 seconds.

Then it started to move again, only it now looked like it was falling toward the north east, at a slightly different trajectory than before. As it “fell” it got dimmer and dimmer until it almost was redddish and very dim and small near the horizon.

I woke my husband up to take a look at the point it stopped. He couldn’t get his glasses on in time to see the object get brighter and emit the light, but he did see it “falling” towards the eastern horizon as it got dimmer. We both watched it until it was gone. I think it was the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen in the sky. I am guessing it was a meteor or satelitte that hit the atmosphere and burned up….??

  1. ME again – I have been researching this since I posted this, and figured out this was the International Space Station!! The sun hit it just right and it burst into illumination – brighter than anything I have ever seen. Check out the schedule on NASA’s web site — It was awesome.


  2. I wanted to tell someone about a strange object three of us saw in the sky one night in Eastern Oregon, above Ukiah, near Bridge Creek Flats.   We were in the mountains, sitting around the campfire in October 2007, about 11 pm, when we heard a rumbling noise coming from the east.  There were no other people or cars around.  The noise lasted maybe 10 minutes and then stopped.  About 5 minutes later, my brother looked up, and saw an object in the sky directly overhead.  He told us, we looked up, and there was a black, triangular shaped object, about 300 feet up, looking almost motionless.  The triangle was hollow in the middle, you could see stars through it, there was one small white light on the underside of  each point, and a tiny red light that seemed to be in the middle of the bare space that you could see stars through.  It began traveling very slowly, eventually reaching what we estimated to be about 30 mph.  It was headed west and we ran and followed it to where we could see  it over Bridge Creek Flats.  It slowing moved across the flats and disappeared several miles away over other mountains.  We never heard a noise after my brother spotted it.  Does anyone know what this may have been?
