Location: Lebanon, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Bright white light moving fast in sky turns red suddenly, changes directions and begins to descend then a second white light is seen.

Lebanon, OR ~9:30 pm. I looked through my house window and noticed a bright light moving fast in the sky. I had heard there were meteor showers happening tonight, so I went outside to watch. But, the light was moving very fast and not like the meteors I have seen. Then I had the thought it was a planet or satellite. The light was very bright white light.

Then the light started to slow down and it changed directions multiple times.

At this point, I had no idea what this thing could be-it wasn’t behaving like the meteors, planets or satellites that I typically see in the sky. I went inside quickly to get my cell phone to take photos/video and get my husband. He then came outside and watched the light with me.

At this point the light suddenly changed from bright white to red. This was really weird to see happen and kind of freaked us out! Then the light started to descend even more when we lost it behind the tree line. It looked as if it was descending toward the ground.

We walked down the block to see if we could spot it behind the trees. We then saw another white light moving similarly (speeding up/slowing down, changing directions suddenly and then looked to descend toward the ground). We followed it as long as we could before it moved out of sight. We did not see the second light change color like the first one.

I have attached photos of the light after it changed red. The light looked very large and bright. I took video of the light for at least 20 seconds, I saw the video recording and we only turned it off when the light descended from view but for some reason only about 2 seconds of the video saved…. Not sure what is up with that!
