Huge White Lighted UFO Spotted Over The Lower Columbia River

At approximately 7:20 pm, I was driver on HWY S-4 from Skamokawa to Cathlamet to and notice a Huge White lighted UFO above the Columbia River adjacent to the Julia Butler Hansen Wildlife Refuge.

I pulled over on the Highway shoulder and watched it. I notice it was traveling West, or downriver.

I immediately drove back the direction I came to Skamokawa Vista Park to get a better view of it. It was then going towards Jim Crow Mountain/ Jim Crow Point, which sticks out in the Lower Columbia. It stayed there many minutes. It was about 200 ft high, and the main object was about '75 ft. in diameter. It was round White light--so bright it lit up the Columbia river from its glow!

I looked through binoculars at it. It was changing shape. With the naked eye it sometimes went to a dull orange color. It was absolutely silent. There were other lights flying around short after it disappeared (at 7:55 pm) far down river and Jim Crow Pt obscured it.

The other lights were blinking red and white. and smaller. You'd think that these were maybe airplanes, BUT when looking at them in binocs they have several other multi colored lights blinking on them also! These other lights were going more North and South and going back over the woods of Wahkiakum County.

This is very rural area. Not many people outside...or seem to look in the air. Maybe they think these are planes! They are not! They are silent. And move very slow.

Years ago I read of Police reports in the local paper of residents up East Valley, Skamokawa reporting UFOS right down LOW by their property! I grew up in this small town, and over the years have observed many UFOs of various colors and sizes fly around and go back into the woods of the Willapa Hills. This area is way downriver from Portland. It would be hard to imagine them being from the Portland airport some 80 miles away. I have seen Huge Green Lights. Huge White Lights. Multi-Colored lights fly back over these hills. Last late September 2014, approx. the 28th I saw one fly right over the town of Skamokawa going North up towards East Valley, maybe 300 ft up, it had all different colored lights blinking on it, absolutely silent!! In binoculars I could see it was like a 28 ft size Black Triangle.

It seems a lot of people just don't look up! These are there if people would just take the time and go outside at night for 3-4 hours after first dark on clear nights.

On Jan. 15, 2015, it was slightly cloudly and foggy, and I saw a Huge Round Green Light about as big as a house descend straight down across the river on the Oregon side into those forested hills. Its was fast, but not as fast as a meteor. As you could tell it was controlled. It went "straight" down.
