Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object, The object emitted other objects
Metalic craft traveling at high speed leaving trail like meteor rapidly changes direction and vanishes.

While driving my pickup I was looking east across Interstate 84 near North Powder Oregon. I saw a metalic craft traveling downward at about a 45 degree angle that emitted four white light tails similar to a meteor that expanded into one enormous tail. It suddenly turned upward at great speed and dissapeared into a blue sky in daylight. It was aprox. 3 miles away and bottomed out at about 1500ft. As this was near the freeway I was hoping someone else saw it. At the great rate of speed this object was traveling the upward manauver really baffles me. There is frequent military aircraft in the area. The following few days after I saw this there were many low level planes flying around in the area (and I mean less than 500ft), and helicopters.
