Location: Eugene, OR
Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 minute
Round, changed color, swerved, reversed direction without turning or stopping.

Two planes, one traveling North to South, one South to North. In between two planes, and closer to plane traveling North to South, and traveling North from the South, was a light easily twice as large as any plane light, twice as bright, and traveling twice as fast.Light was roundish inshape, and chaning color every couple of seconds or so from a bright white with blue tinge to a orange-red. At one point I as the object was very close to the plane I thought "That's awfully close" and it swerved. Swerved quickly to the right, then swerved back again. A couple of seconds later it suddenly had reversed direction. It did not stop, then "back up" or just was going South to North one minute, then as it was stillmoving going bacwards, to the South, the next. I watched it until it traveled out of sight. My husband saw it at the end; as it was moving South; he said he did not think it was any brighter or different than anything else, which surprised me. It was hard for me to understand how he could say that. He did not observe it swerving or reversing direction.
