Reported: 10/5/2004 9:46:42 AM 09:46
Posted: 10/27/2004
Location: Manzanita, OR
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 minutes
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.
