Location: La Grande, OR
|Very clear night.
Stepped outside to check on cats and caught movement in the sky approx. 500ft. in altitude to the east, traveling south to north up the middle of the Grande Rhonde Valley.
Appeared to be a long tapered light approx. 100ft. long with a dark center with 2 bright dots in the middle, dim light as passing through a cloud on the top and bottom... although the sky was clear. No sound whatsoever.
I watched the object fly straight and level for approx. 30 sec., and ran in to get my glasses, only to run back outside and see it fade away to the north behind some foothills.
