Appearance / Description of Object(s)
We saw the green orb from what looked like maybe 3-4 miles away. It gave me the impression of being the size of a bus or truck. A green tail on the back end was there for only a few seconds. No sound that we could hear although it seems like we would have heard any fireworks. Nothing explained about the large craft that was being spotted by the other people we talked to. We didnt take it serious until we saw the green orb blast into the night sky.
Size of Object(s)
realative size about 6" actual size the size of a bus
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
3-4 miles away leaving from an elevated spot on the other side of the Columbia River.
Full Description & Details
I looked at my friend and she looked at me. One of us said "did you see that?" We looked at each other but neither of us said anything at first. Later we talked and agreed we both had seen the bight green ball shoot up into the sky with a green tail of light. I have since heard of these huge silent ufos . The description we heard of what was flying over the city sounds lot like other sightings. At the time I worked for Douglas Co parks dept. and it looked like the thing was up at the Pangborn Memorial. On the following Sunday I checked for any signs of fireworks or something that would explain what my friend and I saw that night. I did not find anything but I still remember that green orb and green tail going straight up.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Nothing that I have been able to come up with explains what we saw.
Park aid for parks department.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
When I was 13 my uncle described a ufo that he had seen. I have always watched the skies because I was interested in the change of air travel. I had not thought much about ufos except from a fictional basis. After that sighting of that bright green orb and tail I started to pay more attention to reports of ufos.
