Location: Eugene, OR
Shape: Oval
Duration: 2 minutes
Oval object seen racing from west to east over Eugene, Oregon.

I was sitting out in our backyard after dinner when I noticed what I thought was a balloon (like a child's balloon that someone had let go of) crossing the sky from west to east. I asked my wife to come out and see what I was looking at and we both watched the object together for about 2 minutes. The object was moving too fast for a plane, had no sound, and seemed rounded and had a silvery/white look to it.

It was still light out and clear, the sun seemed to illuminate this object as it got further away.

Eventually the object went out of sight.
