Corvallis, Oregon Star-Like Light Diamond Shaped

Date: August 5, 2005
Time: 3:45 a.m.

Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: no shape. Too far away. Just like a Star.

Full Description of event/sighting: I wont drown this with dramatic foolery, but I have been researching the net, to see if anyone else had seen this, so I'll report my story here.

All that happened was that I was facing East and noticed a very, very bright star-like light in the sky, diamond shaped, but obviously that's because of optics. Sky and telescope.com's Sky Chart isn't working, so I couldn't say what star/or planet it was directly under, in terms of my line of sight as a relation to where it was in the sky. The star/planet was reddish and about a third of the way north of the horizon to the center of the sky, facing east/southeast.

Anyways, this object was no doubt the brightest object in the sky, and soon began to startle me, and then I noticed it was moving northeast, but did not have blinking lights like that of a commercial aircraft. Soon the light began to decay but as it decayed the object seemed only to move faster and farther north into the night sky, tracing a quarter of the circumference of a circle. It wasn't a direct 90 or 45 degree angle turn. It was soft, but very fast. There was no noise to be heard in the silent hours of the night where I was, and it seemed to bright and too far away in the sky to be the average military jet. I'm not sure what it was, but nearly 4 hours into my 23rd Birthday, it was the highlight of that day.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
