Location: Philomath, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:6 minutes
08/05/13 21:59 Low flying, very large white light, heading north, viewed for 6 minutes.

Aug, 5, 2013 9:59 pm Huge bright white light moving slowly heading almost magnetic north. It moved so slow that it almost seemed to stop.

I watched it for almost 6 minutes, until it disappeared behind some trees.

Compared to commercial jets flying over the object is really low and a 100 x bigger when comparing it to jet lights.

I have seen this before and it is only in the summer and it usually comes from the west heading in about same direction as magnetic north. This time it a lot further SW then the previous times, and seemed to be following a straight path.

My location is N 44*36’59.9” W 123*26’9” Benton County, Oregon.
