Large, cigar-shaped craft w / windows travelling south to NNE near Baker, Oregon @ appx. 22:00 on March 24th, 1979.

Apparently very large,cigar-shaped craft w / large, rectangular observation windows. Looked like an airplane without wings , travelling south to NNE over Baker ( City ), Oregon the night of March 24th, 1979.

After it passed north of town, seemed to slow down, make a 90*turn , and zoomed east at what seemed to be warp speed . A day or so later , the Oregonian newspaper ran an AP article out of San Francisco about a UFO seen over a bunch of western states by airline pilots.

I am a forestry technician with the Bureau of Land Management with nearly 20 years of experience, and have lived in Baker City for the better part of 24 years .
