My husband and I were out on the deck which faces the north to north west area. We were roasting some chickens on the grill when I spoted something shine in the sky , I ran and got my binocular's. (Bushnell 7x35, 420ft.at1000 yds.,14om at 1000m, field8) I searched and found the object , it hadn't moved it was very shiney and look to be wobbling in the one spot I watched this object for aleast 15 to 30 sec.. I then put my binocular's down to help my husband with the grill and then picked up them up again , when I went to look at it had change shape and looked like a column wobbling in the same spot . I turned to say something to my husband and looked back and it was gone from that spot where I was looking . I then ran down the stairs to see if I could see it more from the direction to west and high in the sky , it was there for just a moment and it was gone .. As I was looking at this object for the first time I said to my husband this has no wings so it can't be a airplane and it wasn't a helicopter. I know what they look like and this wasn't it ... All of this happen at about 3:20 or 3:30 pm this 1st day of July , Sunday . There was no sound coming from this object , but it did look to me as if there was some sort of short beam coming from it in a downwards direction ..

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone at length with this witness, and found her to be a serious-minded person. Her description of how suddenly the object disappeared from her sight, combined with a similar report from Gresham, OR, approximately on hour later, suggests to us that she may have witnessed something unusual.
