Close Encounters of the Coos Kind: 'A strange cluster of lights'

FAIRVIEW, Ore. - A resident called the sheriff's office to “seeing a strange cluster of lights moving through the sky near Fairview,” according to Coos County Sheriff's Office dispatch logs.

"Larger than stars and weren't moving, and that she was looking through binoculars. She was using binculars to look at these," said Sgt. Pat Downing with the Coos County Sheriff's Office.

This isn't the first sighting in Oregon this year.

A man living in southern Oregon has posted multiple videos online of what he says is a triangular craft with no engine noise. He doesn't believe the lights are an airplane because they have only one flashing light instead of multiple lights.

For now, Sgt. Downing said there are no unsolved UFO cases in Coos County.

"Our dispatcher classified it, and they observed it," he said, "as a cluster of stars."
