Duration: 6 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
looking south-south east, object was moving from left to right and away from us. Peach or amber glow was like setting sun on moon. Speed faster than jet. Steady speed and direction.

First picked up object with field glasses. Peach glow, blunt cigar shape, not a football. If this is a ufo, it may be a disc if seen overhead. As to size, distance and altitude if object is say 1000 ft long, it was 300 feet fat, about 3000 ft altitude and moving at over 600 mph. There were no unusual maneuvers. Lost sight of object in trees as it seemingly moved South above I-5 corridor. After sighting, my wife called hotline
