Bright Light hovering in Eastern sky for over 4 hours, moving, flashing lights and dancing

A meteor shower was taking place during the second week of August 2012, so my friend and I were star gazing in western Ridgefield on a very secluded farm. It is very dark and you have a great view of the whole area east of the Columbia River from this property. We spent the previous 3 nights out doing the same thing. We went inside to grab a drink around 12:00am, and we came back outside on the back deck around 1:00am. Above the barn where we had been staring for more than 2 hours, there was a large bright orb hovering where nothing had been before. Astonished, we stared at this light comparing it to all the other stars in the sky, the airplanes coming from PDX to our south, and this was nothing like anything else in the sky. We sat and watched the light go up and down, left and right, floating and moving, and then it started getting higher up in the atmosphere. It was dead silent at the farm, and over the night air you could hear the whiring or hoovering sound of an engine. After staring almost motionless for 3 hours, I decided to post on facebook about what I saw. No more than five minutes later, another friend of mine messaged me and drove over to the property we were at. At 4am he arrived at the house and the floating light orb was still there, bright as can be. As dawn came, you could see this bright light in the morning sky, all the other stars were gone but this light was so visible. He could he the engine noise as well. Next time I looked away, it was just gone. It was about 5am when it finally left.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
