Observer
NameMark K
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe object was very large and coming in at a 30 degree angle. It was green at the front and red in the back. It was low and seemed to impact behind trees (out of my view) about 2 miles north of Scio, Oregon on Stayton-Scio Road. It was far larger and closer than the showers in August and December and oddly colored. While I lost the object view behind trees, I am guessing there was an impact point in one of the thousands of acres of farm fields. I would guess that the object was ~1 mile off the road at impact (toward the west of my location) I was driving a Pontiac Solstice and a very bring light caught my attention, It was moving very fast and seemed not far about the car at the end when it was lost behind trees
