January 18th 2008 : Near Hugo, Oregon

Near Hugo, Oregon Star Like Object Appeared To Change To A Diamond Shape

Date: January 18, 2008
Time: Between 7:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

This is interesting. On a whim, I was googling for any "2008 UFO sightings southern Oregon" and hit the above post. The reason I was searching was because on January 18th, between 7:30PM to 8PM+, my wife and I saw a similar object from our home near Hugo, Oregon. I only remember the exact date/time because I tried to take a picture (which I did not get due to "user error") of the object, but retrieved the RAW time/date of the failed photo as I post this email.

I happened to look out our bedroom window around 7:30 p.m. and noticed a very bright "star-like" object due East of our home. The night was clear and cold, and I especially noticed it because it was centered between two "real" stars that night, which were much dimmer. With the naked eye, it looked almost like it was pulsing. I went and got out my 40x sighting scope to take a further look, and basically could see a "fuzzy" something, that seemed to be alternating with red, green and white light. At one point while looking through the scope, I thought I saw it morph into a diamond-shaped light (flat on top with the "diamond" pointing down) that had a tail of light underneath it (length about twice the height of the "diamond"). While the object looked still to the naked eye, in the scope it looked like it was jittering in place (and no, I took into account trying to hold the scope still while looking [you jam the scope against the window]).

Because of the "fuzziness" of the object/light, I have no idea how far away it was. It could have been one mile or one million miles. I do know that there was no sound coming from that direction, and if it were a helicopter within 1 to 3 miles away I would have heard it. Also, I doubt a helicopter could hover so precisely in place from more than 1/2 hour (at least, we both got bored after that). I checked back about 40 minutes later and it was gone (the real "stars" where still there). Also, while watching this object, I did notice a jet fly over at high altitude (no sound but a visible Conrail). The I5 corridor is typically a busy commercial jet route.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
