Posted: 8/10/1999
Location: Ashland, OR
Shape: Light
Duration: 1-2 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
A light drifted from west to east, roughly following the Rogue Valley corridor.

I was standing in front of my home, and saw a light drifting from west to east, roughly following the Rogue Valley corridor. I was facing north, toward Grizzly Peak. There was no sound, no flashing lights as on aircraft wings, the path was not exactly straight, but somewhat wobbly; it was slow, not fast like a meteor; and at the east end of the valley it disappeared as if it had gone behind a cloud, however, it didn't reappear. At some points in its trajectory it looked blurry. It was too low to be a satellite; it was a constant white light as it drifted from the left of my visual field to my right, as a planet's light is constant because it is reflected light. I am an acupuncturist with a masters of science in oriental medicine. My vision is 20/10, I do not have night blindness or light sensitivity, and I have been living in this location since 4/97. I have never seen a UFO before, however, I have seen satellites, meteorites, and of course aircraft at night.
