Eugene, Oregon--On July 31st, 2005 at about 12:15, I was sitting out by my mailbox reading and talking on the phone, when suddenly I saw something out of the corner of my eye...something bright.
I looked at it closely and thought, "Oh, itís just a plane; maybe a shooting star?"
Then I took a closer look, and there were green and yellow flashing lights on it. It was moving at an incredible speed, Iíd say around 1,500-2,000mph (literally). The object appeared to be going in circles and blinking its lights rapidly.
I was literally shocked from what I saw. I said to my friend "I gotta go bye" and hung up.
I ran into my parents room, woke them up and had my mom run out to see it; by the time we both got out there, it was gone. She went right back to bed, and about five minutes later I saw another one (possibly the same one coming from a different direction). I didnít know what to think this time.
I ran inside again, except this time to get my camera. When I came back out with it, it was gone. So... I was hanging out in my backyard after that trying to spot another one (I had my camera at that time).
I spotted another for the third time! I saw this one about 1:45a.m. It looked just the same. I got a picture of it this time. The picture is kind of hard to see, but if you zoom in, itís a little easier to see. It didnít look like the typical circular UFO shape, it looks to me like itís more rectangular or "platform-shaped."
The next day the news came to interview me; It was shown on the news that day (August 1st, 2005). That night, the newscaster called me up and said there were 30 other people that also saw it last night, they called the police and the police came! They didnít know what to think, they were just shocked.
The next day (August 2nd, 2005) a friend from church called my house and left a message saying that she saw th UFO as well around the same time of night too. Now... nobody knows whatís going on.
((NUFORC Note: We do not know what it was that this student may have witnessed, but it seems odd that none of the other alleged "30 witnesses" has not submitted a report, as well. We have received no other reports of the alleged incident. PD))
