UFO sighted in Salem, OR, over park at around height of airplanes and is white and shiny with translucent halo blinks out & comes back.

My two young daughters and I were at Clark Creek park in Salem, Oregon, 07/14/15 at around 5:10 pm. The sky was clear and blue with a few clouds and it was a warm nice day.

I looked up near the southeastern part of the sky and noticed a stationary white object that was round, and had a sort of white or metallic look to it. It might have very slowly moved while we observed it, but I can't be sure.

I had my Canon camera with me at the park, so I started to film it, and it was hard to keep it steady because my kid started crying, as most toddlers do when the stroller stops moving.
My 5 year old was talking about it as we have talked about ufos in the past and she was very interested in it.

It disappeared right before our eyes after only being there for a few short minutes, and we continued walking in the park picking berries. I looked up again to see and it showed up again in around the same area of the sky. It sort of had a translucent halo around it that was very! hard to see but I noticed it nonetheless.

It disappeared again and we were pretty excited.

A regular big white airplane showed up and flew past the area we had sighted the ufo, maybe the same height in the sky as well, and according to the size of the plane I'll guess that ufo was maybe half the size of the plane and a much brighter shiny white color.

I have witnessed and filmed some other objects before, and my husband and I are very interested ufo researchers. He has college background I have graduated high school and we're intelligent and read a lot. This type of sighting only has me feeling they will be back again. I have submitted a report to MUFON and uploaded the video I shot today as well.
