Location: Oysterville, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Ball of light spotted over Oysterville, Washington.

I had just gotten home and it was a very clear night. There are no streetlights here and so the stars are quite clear. I looked up at the sky and saw a (silent) ball of light traveling steadily from West to East. (Coming from near the Pacific Ocean and heading towards Willapa Bay.)

It had no colored lights like a plane. It had no flashing lights. It was just a ball of white light.

When it was over Willapa Bay, I witnessed the light of the object turn completely dim until it faded out from white, to an orange glow to nothing.

That was all that I saw basically. It appeared large and to be flying relatively low in the night sky.

I took some video of the object on my iPhone, but it came out shakey and blurry. Basically nothing compared to what I saw.
