|Red lights in V formation less than 2 miles off Paf.coast-westerly flew off due North first. Easterly advanced of center light & went So.east center remained statitonary 30 sec. All vanished"poof!" NO sound. Not Russian Rocket. 3rd sighting in 2 years all early morn. This one was the closest. "Old timers" here are used to it.
I believed the Russian rocket stuff until I read the Oregonina last week which said it all happened around 9:30p.m. At first I thought it was a plane except 1. it was to close to the tideline(the coast is scatered with monoliths) 2. too big for the small planes that land at this airport. 3 red lights in a tight V formation. The light on the most westerly side broke first and went due north. The light on the easterly advanced of the center an went due south. The center stayed stationary then was gone. These lights were bright as headlights and steady until they vanished. The folks that have grown-up around here say these sightings are common.
