The witness was a passenger in a vehicle driven by her mother at 2:06 p.m. on July 18, 2018.
“I was in the passenger seat,” the witness stated. “My mom then pointed out two white lines in the sky. They were far off and too big to be an airplane. The lines were definitely not airplanes because there was no tail or wings. On a regular airplane you can make out the shape of it, but these were just straight white, cigar-shaped lines in the sky. They appeared to be headed eastward in a straight path before they stopped and started hovering. One of the cigar lines appeared to be flying below the higher-up cigar line and a distance back from it. Then after the higher-up white line stopped, the lower white line caught up underneath the higher-up white line and then ascended upwards to merge with the higher-up white line. At the time in my confusion, and while I was trying to figure out what the cigar-like objects were, I did not think to record. After the two objects merged, they moved northward, disappearing into a thundercloud, in which an airplane would not go. Also, I noticed the two objects were flying in close vicinity of each other, and I know commercial airliners do not do that. I guess I would describe the way that the objects were flying was as if they were formation flying. I witnessed this event in Hood River, Oregon, and the objects seemed to be flying over the Washington side of the water from where I was at the time.”
The witness did not feel like the objects were posing a threat in anyway.
“People in movies tend to make UFOs seem like these dangerous beings that come to Earth to solely kill humans. But these objects only appeared to be investigating the Earth below. I was not frightened by these objects, but instead I was left with many questions. What were they here for? Did anyone else see them? And what was the sole purpose of them coming to Earth? When my mom and I came home we told my dad and brother about the bizarre event. They did not believe us though. And because we don’t have any pictures or videos, this event will be nodded off as another illusion, human imagination, or for entertainment. And though I do accept that not everything on the Internet is real, I know what I saw, and UFOs are real. The UFOs that I saw were real.”
Oregon MUFON Field Investigator Kellie Graham and State Director Thomas Bowden closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
