Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Longer than wide, light colored metal with at least 5 window/ portholes all in a row. There was orange light in the craft and extending out the back with the humming sound. The orange light extended out the back in a rhythm. The craft was thicker under the windows than above.
Size of Object(s)
I think my hand if flattened out would cover the craft. About 4 inches or more. It was a while ago and I'm not quite sure. Bigger than a Baron and smaller than a Airliner.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Across canyon below the opposite tree line. Very easy to see this object.
Description of Area / Surroundings
We were way out in the countryside not to far from the ghost town of Grandview. High desert with Juniper trees and Ponderosa Pine . We were on the edge of a long wide canyon and the craft was on the far side of the canyon below the tree level.
Full Description & Details
Slow low flying light colored craft with orange lights in what looked like port holes. A pulsating sound that was in unison with an orange light that came out of the back. It made a humming sound when the light came out from the back. It flew slower than an airplane is able to fly. About 15 MPH. We watched is across a valley. It flew lower than the tree line on the opposite valley. It went steadily to our left which I think was toward the south. It was longer than wide. More the cigar shape than round. We three watched it until it disappeared. My ex-husband was with me and he is a pilot. We had a slow Bat-21 plane that can go about 35 which is slow for a plane and this was moving slower.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
This was not anything that I have ever seen or heard of before or since. It was not an airplane, and flew slower than any plane is able. It could have been a experimental UFO man made but not one that I know of. It had a pulse sound and light that seemed to propel it forward.
I lived in Central Oregon for 20 years where I raised my son. I am a graduate from University of California Berkeley. I studied Earth Science and Anthropology. Now I live in Breckenridge, CO (for the last 12 years) I'm self employed. Have done lots of property management for years. I am starting a distribution company for soil amendments that are all natural and conserve water and enhance top soil.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I had seen 2 lights in the sky in CA that moved in an unusual way when with friends in the 1970's. I have always thought it reasonable that we are not alone in this Universe. My views are the same before and after the sighting. I have not read a lot about actual craft and sightings before or after. Just the typical knowledge.
The sighting I am reporting was of an unusual craft and I have not seen anything like this before or since. I have not heard anyone else mention a sighting like this. I was with 2 other people in the early evening and plenty of light to all see and talk about what we were seeing. It was so slow moving and below tree line over a valley. Under radar.
