Sighting Reports 2009Woman Sees Bright Orange Ball of Flames in Night Sky
Date of Sighting: March 31, 2009
Description: I saw a bright orange ball of flames with a very very small tail. It looked large. My sighting occurred in the Eastern Oregon mountain area. It was headed east and traveled on a downward slant and to the east. My view was from in the house looking south through huge windows it was just above tree tops and then was visible through the trees as it traveled east and down out of sight. In my opinion it could have been within 30-50 miles? I do realize it's hard to tell the distance with a flying object. The flames were very visible. Perhaps it was space junk! All I could see was the flames, but the shape was more oval then round.
Note: I agree with the witness that the object could have been space debris. However, that is speculation and I have no evidence that any space junk was in the area at the time of the sighting.
