Duration:30 seconds
Uplit triangular craft displaying spectrum of color over Hwy 26.

I was traveling west on Highway 26 at 9:40 PST. The sighting occurred between the Jackson School Road exit and North Plains exit. I saw a bright golden light on horizon to the NW, over Pumpkin Ridge. I thought it was a planet due to position and quality of light, maybe Venus. As I continued to watch, the light began to move and then change color from gold to Orange to red through the spectrum very smoothly, like a gradient.

The object moved unlike any aircraft I've seen, very fast and smooth with no blinking lights. It moved South very quickly, close enough to the highway that I could see it was an uplit, triangular object. As I tried to comprehend what I was seeing, as well as keep the car on the road, it disappeared. The entire episode lasted less than a minute.

I am a woman in her early 20s, working in the service industry.
