Driving north on Highway 101 to my home in Bay City, OR I observed a bright cylinder shaped light approximately 500 feet above the south end of Tillamook Bay. At my home in Bay City, OR I observed the bright light through binoculars. The object appeared to be a fully illuminated cylinder that was rising slowly in a northwesterly direction. The cylinder entered a broken cloud cover and illuminated the clouds around the cylinder. The cylinder continued to rise and disappeared from view after approximately 5 minutes. Approximately 5 minutes after the cylinder disappeared, jet fighter aircraft were heard above the Bay City, OR area.
