|On Monday, 3/12/2018, at 12:00 AM, I walked out on my back porch to have a cigarette and look at Orion between the large surrounding trees. I saw what at first looked like a star at a glance just below where Orion’s feet are. I saw it move downward and over and thought well that’s odd. I stared closer and saw it flashing multiple colored lights. The object was small and bright white light. The white light was fixed but the colors that flashed were colors I had never seen on anything in the sky before. It flashed red, blue, green, pinkish lavender. My first thought was it was all the rainbow or aura colors.
It moved southwest farther away behind a tree branch and I could no longer see it. I went into my bedroom and could see it out the window. Still the same just smaller, farther away. I got my binoculars and could see it more clearly. I was amazed! I watched it for 40 minutes. I went to get my phone to google it. When I came back it was gone. The sky was dark.
I don’t know if it was just a reflection but I could have sworn the colored lights were streaming (not sure of the right word) toward the bottom and flashing.
The light was about 60 degrees from the horizon. I live at about 1000’. The object was SW from me in the valley, toward Forest Grove area.
I reported this on MUFON.
