One large white disc shaped object near Sea Lion Caves, Oregon.

11-16-2017, 8:45pm driving north on highway 101 from Florence, Oregon, to Yachats, I saw a large white disc off to the left of the car, out over the ocean. I was on the passenger side and could look at it for about 5-10 seconds. We were driving north along the edge of the cliffs - about 200 feet up from the water. The perfectly circular disc was evenly lighted, - not harsh or brilliant like a lighthouse light but evenly soft white. No glow to it. It was approx. the size of a half dollar at my finger tips when my arm is extended.

It did not move and hovered just about 20° below my shoulder height when seated in the car - a mid sized Escape.... not the newer taller one - out over the water. We did not hear any noise. Trees got in our view so about 1 minute or less later we pulled into the parking lot of the Sea Lions Cave where I got out and could see most of the coast to Florence. All was dark and quiet - no sign of anything anywhere in the water or along the coast.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and she sounded to us to be exceptionally serious and sober-minded. We suspect that both she and her husband are highly reliable, and capable, witnesses. Please see a second report from the husband. PD))
