Did you notice at about 1:07 something in the background flies from right to left, whole frame, above the object. It was fast too.

My gut reaction when I hear someone calling this a helicopter is, the video person must've known that then. How do you NOT hear a helicopter?
I want to believe people at first and give them the benefit so helicopter is off my check-list ....for now.
Plus, if it was a solid object, why did I see through it?
Some times (and I'm not saying this is the case with this particular video YET but...) some times, there just aren't any good explanations and we should be okay with that.
I personally don't feel I have to make things fit just to satisfy a mystery.

Around 1995 or 1996, summer, a friend and I were camping in the hills above Ashland, Oregon. It was just after
dark, we were laying out our sleeping bags under the stars, and, booooooom! I have told my only UFO story over the years, and described the sound as like several jet engines, loud, rumbling. And up over the ridge, just above the treeline, was this - craft- lights, we could not discern a definite shape. Well, it traversed the ridgeline, and not so fast; we watched it fly all the way from the left to right of our vision. it was up there for about 20 seconds, loud and
very close. God, I was yelling at my friend, DO YOU SEE THAT?!... It appeared and sounded like nothing man made, and besides it was far too low to the trees to be an aircraft. Right over them. It finally disappeared over the other side of the mountain.
This was one of the most phenomenal experiences of my life. And shared, verified, with another person. And years later I told the story to a local who may have seen the same thing at the same time in those mountains.
I have always described it as a bunch of lights, or a triangle of lights, with one big flashing light, that (the craft was so low!) lit up the bottom of the clouds above.
So, I would like to know about the implied first sighting of the craft in the vid. Did it make noise? What part of Oregon when?
See, I opened the vid, and THAT is the UFO we saw! The unique light pattern, and even the rhythm of the pulsing light are the same!
Is there more info about this video? That thing I think is what I saw.
And if this a hoax, then, well, weird...

It looks like a chopper. We are watching a highly edited video. Maybe the sound of it was edited out. We talked about on the live show t'night, many choppers are now stealth....and very silent.
I am of the camp that I dont believe witness testimony just because. the evidence needs to match the testimony....and well, it looks like a chopper....i dont believe the testimony matches what is being seen.
Maybe contact him and ask for raw footage w/ all sound and no editing at all....until then...we are watching edited footage.....even then, he could edit the sound and we wouldnt know...edit on February 25th 2012 by greeneyedleo because: (no reason given)

Like I said, this is the first I'm hearing of any supposed sightings in Oregon..
So maybe Oregon is an unknown (non-famous) hot-spot after all.
