Tuesday, February 19, 2008 On February 16, 2008 approximately 6:30 pm three children ages 12 to 13 were outside talking on the neighborhood street in Albany Oregon when they saw a large circlar craft traveling at a high speed in the direction from east to west. This occurred on a beautiful day in daylight hours with clear skys. All children concurred that they heard a loud roar and what also sounded as a sonic boom. Approximately a minute latter they witnessed seven military jets possibly from the Portland Oregon Air Base, traveling in the direction from the north to south. The jets suddenly made an abrupt turn to the west in the direction of travel they last saw the craft traveling. The children all concure that the craft was very large and as described by my son as at least as large as two houses. They also said the craft had four green lights on the underside or belly of the craft. I tried to determine altitude by asking the children if it was traveling at a height were commercial jets fly. Their answer was about half the distance of were you would expect a commercial jet liner to fly. I would estimate approximately 20,000 ft.
