I was on the corner of 12th and Alder street in Eugene, OR at 10:57pm, after grabbing food. I got into my car to leave and saw 2 bright orange lights to the side of me, in the sky. I first thought it was a really low flying plane and the lights were on the wings, then they rotated around, as if it were a baton slowly twirling, with lights on the ends. I grabbed my phone and started shooting video and stepped out of my car. There was low cloud cover, so I didn't track them for very long because they were ascending up into the clouds, heading SE. I got about 1 minute of footage of these 2 lights, then noticed there were 2 brighter orange lights that just came into view from behind a building, and they were moving in the same direction as the other 2 that were now out of sight. These were also bright orange, and were spread father apart than the original two were. My phone ran out of storage space and the video got cut off, but they also ascended into the clouds, close to where the first 2 had. These looked connected at first, all moving at the same time, but after my video stopped, they each moved around a bit more, to where they didn't maintain staying in that format. The lights on these were constant, not flickering in and out or changing in brightness until disappearing through the low clouds. As soon as they disappeared, people were walking around the corner and I asked if they saw anything and they hadn't. After my video ran out, while I could still see the lights, I used my phone to post to Facebook to tell anyone in Eugene to run outside and look for the lights. Someone commented she saw a similar light last week, about a mile away (on 2nd and Polk Street) from where I was seeing this. I posted my video on Facebook and just uploaded it to YouTube. *I can't attach my video file to this report because I uploaded it straight from my phone to FB and YouTube, and don't have storage on my PC to save it to my computer. I am happy to send the link to you if you let me know where you'd like it sent, as it tells me not to include links on this part.
