Location: Barview, OR
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2-3 minutes
Large, triangular shaped object, three points of fient light as if stars.

My friend and I were camping at the Barview Jetty Park, on the beach in Oregon.We had been there for two days already,spending the days surfing. We are both engineers. I live in Seattle,my friend in Eugene, OR. It was around 1230 PM or 0030 military time. We had been sitting around the campfire,talking about the days waves and star gazing. I had identified several planets and constellations to my friend when I noticed a very fient triangular object in the southern sky.It really looked like dim stars on each point of a triangle and it was moving upward,very slowly.It stopped,then moved left,then up and out into space until I could no longer see it. It disappeared at my 1 o'clock position as I faced south.I pointed it out to my friend as soon as I saw it and he confirmed that I was not crazy or seeing things. It was very fient and very large. I hope that we were not the only witness to this object.
