Extremely bright light over Mt. Bachelor

My husband and I saw a very bright light over Mt. Bachelor. I thought it might be Venus, but I looked up the star chart and found Venus, and it was much dimmer.

This was so bright that it looked like a morphing bright light- it sort of changed shape and color, and we watched it as it "set" behind the mountain. It was extremely bright, and was in the NW horizon.

I'm skeptical about UFO's, and I have a bachelors degree.


((NUFORC Note: Currently, Venus is visible in the evening western sky, and it is very bright. We believe that it would have to be ruled out, before we could conclude that the witness saw something dramatic that was not Venus. PD))
