Location: North Plains, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:5-10 minutes
A stationary star suddenly shoots straight across the sky above North Plains then shoots towards space.

My wife, daughter, and myself were at a local campsite waiting to watch a meteor shower, which we apparently received the wrong information since we saw none, and were watching the stars to pass the time. My daughter is a star gazing fool. lol. We found ourselves looking at a cluster of stars that none of us could figure out which one it was and after several minutes the brightest stars in that group sailed across the sky in a fast straight line, stopped momentarily and then shot upwards and was gone. I am a very sceptical person but I've never in my life seen a star move like that, let alone any aircraft I've ever seen.
