A witness in LaGrange, Oregon claimed to have spotted and recorded on video a glowing, disc-shaped UFO. He reported the sighting to Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and it was filed in Case 53207 of the organization’s witness reporting database.
The reporting witness was with his wife outside on a balcony enjoying a barbecue when the object made an appearance around 10:05 p.m. on August 15, 2013.
The husband knew at that moment that it wasn’t ordinary. He was taking the video when the mysterious object blasted off so fast or disappeared.
MUFON received the report of the sighting on January 3, 2014. Oregon assistant director Keith Rowell investigated the case and closed it as unknown.
Rowell stated in his report that the witness saw the aerial object maneuvered around a bit. It had a reddish/whitish color that flashed randomly and appeared to be glowing. Both witnesses believed it was disk-shaped and had a dome and windows. The video doesn’t show it, but it does reveal an unusual and fast-changing, lighted object.
While investigating the video, Rowell could only think two possible identifications for the UFO, namely, the hobbyist RC aircraft and burning balloon-like object. However, the UFO’s characteristics don’t fit all to both RC object and burning object.
Rowell explains that an RC object doesn’t vary in shape too radically several times and its color does not vary from virtually washed out white to reddish/yellow. He adds that lighted RC’s internal image structure would be more regular, even if it were programmed randomly as light show type of RC craft.
Rowell further explains that a burning object would have been fit the random look of the UFO in the video, but the UFO’s movement doesn’t fit well with characteristics of a drifting, airborne object.
