Occurred : 8/2/2017 23:35 (Entered as : 08/02/2017 23:35)
Reported: 8/3/2017 8:32:16 PM 20:32
Posted: 8/4/2017
Location: Oakesdale, WA
Shape: Oval
Duration:5 minutes
The object that we saw was a massive oval that produced a loud thruming noise as it passed.

On the night of 8/02/2017, I went to bed at about 11:00 pm. At about 11:30 pm, my son came knocking at the door saying you need to come out and see this thing.

When I walked out side and went behind our shop I saw a ring of lights that appeared to go around this extremely large dark object, The lights flashed one at a time and went around the object clockwise. What really was amazing was the size, it seemed to take up a third of the western sky.

The other thing that we noticed was the noise it was producing, It sounded like a steady thrum and was vibrating things around us.

It slowly moved of to the west and faded from sight. The sky was fairly dark due to smoke from fire and the light was subdued from the smoke. Stars were visible were the object wasn't but we were awed by the area it occupied.

My son grabbed my cell phone and tried to record it and mainly got the sound. The lights on the object were white.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he sounded to us to be quite credible and sincere, as did his son. Please see the similar report regarding a similar sighting a few minutes later near Lincoln, WA, on the Columbia River. PD))
