Location: Manzanita, OR
|Wedge, 70' off the ground, Moving NE at approx. 15 MPH towards Washington state. Very large with Red flashing lights and no sound.
I live on the Oregon coast. A small town by the name of Manzanita. One block from the ocean.
At 8:30PM tonight I was outside walking my dog, when I heard the unmistakable sound of Jet engines above. I searched the clear, unobstructed skies and saw nothing. It is not common for Fighter Jets to be on night practice here. Though I have seen them during the daytime.
When I looked directly above my head, I saw a very large patch of night time ski gone. No stars, nada! Then slowly they started to re-appear as if there were something blocking my view of them.
This craft was dark as the most nark anything can be and was moving at approximately 15 MPH, in a Northeasterly direction. Towards Washington State. I live 40 minutes from there.
It was about the size of half a football field and there were two reddish lights on the underside, one on each side. There were none on the front.
It was moving sooo slow that I could have kept up with it walking.
