Beaverton, Oregon Object With Large Blue Halo Around It

Date: February 11, 2008
Time: Approx: 7:25 p.m.

Just an update as the "unidentified object" was out tonight as well.

Tonight, rather than being due east from our house it was more south-east, and rather than being just above our neighboring hill, it was about 45 degrees higher in the sky. This was around 7:25 PM.

And I've just rediscovered Murphy's Law, as I had taken the time to get out my HD camcorder, put in a telephoto lens, set it up on a tripod and "record" 8 minutes of footage. Having done this in a hurry, I didn't realize that the DV cassette I had put in the camcorder was a cleaning cassette, not a recordable cassette (and the camera didn't bother to complain) so I actually have no video.

It was slowly moving east to west though, as when I started to tape the object/planet/satellite it was about "two feet" away from my front porch over-hang where I was taking its picture and it was just going out of view over the over-hang about 10 minutes later.

Again to the naked eye it was bright and almost dazzling (compared to any other star/planet in the sky at the time) in multiple colors of white, blue and red. The main thing I noticed in the LCD view finder was the object had a really large blue halo around it.

While I obviously do not know what this is, on the surface it would seem to be more of a bright planet/star or satellite putting on a good light show due to atmospheric conditions, rather than a true "UFO", but hey, I can always hope.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
