ORANGE CYLINDER OVER EUGENE ON THE 4th

IT WAS A CLERR NIGHT. I FIRST OBSERVED A CIGAR SHAPED OBJECT COMING FROM THE SOUTH AND HEADING DUE NORTH. IT SEEMED TO ME TO BE GOING 250+ MPH AND BETWEEN 500 TO 750 FEET UP.

IF I AM CORRECT IT HAD TO BE 150' LONG AND 30+' ROUND. I LIVE ON A LANDING PATH 4 MILES FROM THE AIRPORT NORTH OF ME. THE LIGHT EMITTED WAS ORANGE AND CONSTANT.

AT FIRST, FOR THE FIRST 5 SECONDS, I THOUGHT WAS A FLAMES, BUT RULED THAT OUT BECAUSE THE SHAPE SEEMED TO BE SHARP. IT HEADED ALMOST STRAIGHT FOR MY POSITION, BUT STARTED TO VEER TO THE EAST WHEN IT GOT ABOUT 1/2 MILE AWAY AND BEGAN TO CLIMB AND HEAD DUE EAST. I LOST SIGHT OF IT AS IT CLIMBED IN THE EAST.

IT WAS ABOUT AS ROUND AS AS THE MOON, YET AS LONG AS 7 MOONS.

THE WIND WAS FROM THE NNE.

IT SCARED ME WHEN FIRST OBSERVED. I THOUGHT IT WAS A MISSLE OR METEOR.

MY FRIEND AND I AGREE THAT IT WAS CONTROLLED. no sound
