|Bright lights of unknown origins witnessed by two individuals over the Pacific Ocean
I was sitting in our car with my boyfriend, we are in our mid thirties. We were watching the evening sky grow dark. The sun set around 9ish. When I first started viewing the night sky a sliver of a moon and a bright star to the right were visible if you are facing the pacific ocean.
As the darkness increased I became aware of two brighter objects appearing between the moon and the bright star. At first I thought they were stars that were further away and needed more darkness to be seen. That was until they started to move. They took off from over the ocean headed southeast at a fairly decent pace.
By this point I have caught my boyfriends attention because I practically had my face planted in the windshield. It was at this point I asked the question to no one in particular and to myself out loud "What in the hell is that?" My boyfriend noticed what I was seeing and we both started exiting the car, him to get the camcorder out of the trunk I already had my camera in hand and was ready to take pictures. I started shooting as soon as I could but didn't think I was getting anything so I kept looking over the camera to make sure I was pointing it in the right direction. Meanwhile my boyfriend was getting the camcorder trying to capture what we were seeing. While I was trying to capture the still shots I witnessed a triangular shaped silver object appear 40 to 50 feet above my head going to the right or northwardly up the beach no sound accompanied any of these objects. When I gave up in my attempts to get pictures and turned back to my boyfriend to see if he was getting it on film I witnessed them disappear into the southeastern sky. May be a minute later we witnessed two light seemingly further away and dimmer flying a bit further apart flying from the SW to the NE. We are not sure if they were the same two or two new ones. We watched the sky for about another half an hour and witnessed nothing else at that location. We finally headed back to our motel room about a quarter mile from the original sigh ting. We discussed what each had seen my boyfriend confirmed the two bright lights I had seen but he says he saw a third light I didn't see forming a triangle shape with the first two but he reports that he didn't witness the triangular silver object that I seen headed north.
We spent the rest of that evening watching the skies off the oregon coast and an orange glow of what looked to be something burning on the horizon where the sky meets the ocean. We don't know what we saw that night. We both agree it was like nothing we have ever seen before. However we did capture video of this event.
