Location of Sighting: Newberry Crater, LaPine Oregon

Shape(s) of UFO(s): Dome shaped, Like the top of US Capitol

Color(s) of UFO(s): White

Number of UFO(s): 1

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: 7 miles

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): North

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): Paulina Peak

Further Description of Sighting: Heading East on what was then called Pringle Falls Rd, we were returning to camp after a day of hunting. Paulina Peak lay directly ahead of us as the sun had just set. On top of Paulina Peak there was this brillant light. As we continued toward Newberry Crater, the light headed North off the peak. One passenger with me interpreted the lights as head lights from a vehicle, since there is a view point up there (in the sixties it was just a very dangerous dirt road to the top). I disagreed, since the light traveled North from the view point. If it had been a car, it would have plunged a thousand feet or more off the North facing cliff. As we were heading East on Pringle Falls Rd, we got close enough to see a shape. It was like slicing the top off the the US Capitol building, having a spire at the top of the dome shape. I witnessed two other UFO events in the Springfield OR area in the late 60’s that were probably even more interesting, but I’ll save those for inquires. I have not experienced any sightings since the sixties. Oh, wait, there were those dark shadows in the night sky when I lived in Wyoming for a short time.
