Posted: 12/2/2000
Location: Klamath Falls to Medford, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour
While leaving Klamath Falls Oregon by car I noticed a star to my rt. Or which i thought was a star, maybe Venus. Anyways i was talking to my friends 2 adults and a thier daughter. We were going to K mart in Medford to get their daughters Brownie outfits. We were about 4 miles from downtown Medford and i noticed the light was extremely close and much larger. like a headlight( very bright) it was moving as fast as we were it was maybe a mile away from us. Parallel to the highway. When we reached the part of the highway parallel to the Airport it stopped above the Airport maybe 2 miles up and extremly bright. I was changing the radio stations to see if anyone had reported it. When we pulled into the Parking lot to K mart we watched it hover for 45 min. No noise. We didnt notice but across the street from Kmart many transformers had blown before we got to Kmart. the power was on at Kmart so we didnt notice til we saw many Police looking around. I crossed the street and approached an officer and said I know what caused this power outage. I pointed at the bright light hovering and he looked up, but at his angle he couldnt see it because of a roof top, he told me to get lost. the light slowly moved across town and fog set in. we watched it for 20 more min then we decided to leave. I heard of no reports on this incident, I cant remember the date or month but im sure it would be easy to find out the day the transfomers blew on the summer evening in Medford 1996. Thankyou
