Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Slow moving bright light in the sky

Working at a hotel on the beach in Lincoln City, I looked to the Eastern horizon and witnessed a light travelling south. The light was orange, like the color of a street-lamp, and bright, like an airplane with its headlights on. It travelled a slower than I am used to seeing planes fly, but at a steady pace. It was too bright to be a satellite. It could be an airplane with its lights on, though that seems improbable given our relation to any airports.

I continued to watch this odd light fly south. After a few minutes the light began to pulse, or change, as if the light was turning away from me then back toward me again. This happened for a minute or two then the light just extinguished altogether. I kept watching for approximately five minutes, but never saw the light again.

This is the second time I have encountered a sighting such as this, which has prompted me to write this encounter. The first time was in early April (I don't remember the exact date), a very similar encounter except this original encounter occurred at 9:30 pm, the light was bright white and not orange, and it was travelling West to East much more overhead, rather than near the horizon. But everything else was the same, the time-span, the way it 'pulsed', and the way it went out altogether.

Very interested if anyone has witness this here in Lincoln county or surrounding areas.
