Red pulsating orb over the center of Bend, Oregon. Multiple witness reports to 911.

I had just left work when I noticed a bright red object moving very slowly over the center of Bend. I at first thought was only an airplane, but after driving the few blocks to my house and parking I got out to find it "hovering" possibly 1000 feet above and to the east of my house. It was a bright red circular or possibly disc shaped craft, with what appeared to be a smaller red light that seemed to revolve around the center of it (it almost appeared seperate from the larger shape at times). I asked a man coming out of a store to look at it and then I went into the store and had a young woman who works there, and another man come out to view it. I then called the Bend Police Department's 911 line and reported it, and asked if they had any other reports of it, they said they did. My roommate then came home, and I had him look at it also. We had a sighting a couple of years back that we also reported on this database, and this craft slowly dissappeared in the general direction as that one did, towards the now infamous cattle mutilation site of Sandy Springs to the south east of Bend. We only just saw this thing, so I'm going to call the Redmond airport and see if they have any information (I tried contacting the local newspaper but they were closed). My roommate took a photo of it. Right over the center of our town. Wow.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke at length with this witness, and found him to be exceptionally convincing. He has pursued facts surrounding the incident, to the extend of contacting the local news media, police, etc.. He appeared on a major radio program with me and did an excellent job of describing what he had seen. PD))
