Object Spotted Over Northwest Oregon Draws Attention

(Tillamook, OR) -- A white object high in the sky over northwest Oregon drew a lot of attention Wednesday morning. It was a research balloon for NASA from Near Space Corporation based in Tillamook. It's similar to a standard weather balloon, but flies higher than planes can travel. The company has been in business since 1996 and offers high altitude and near space platforms for government, academic, and commercial customers.
