Location: Aloha, OR
Shape: Diamond
Duration:12 min
Slow moving orange dimond.

As I was looking toward the coast range (appox.wnw) I saw what I thought was a bright reflection in the sunset off a high altitude aircraft.Yet it was to bright and too slow,in fact it was'nt moving at all.I lined it up with a tree and saw that it was moving just a little and then would stop.I grabbed my binoculars and took a better look at it thinking there was a prosaic explaination.What I saw was a dimond shape with the briteness of a flahlite bulb,kind of orangish.All of a sudden it started to move down then across the horizen toward a small community called North Plains.It then went behind the trees that obscure my veiw on the hillside above me.
