Name: Patricia Kirk
Date of Sighting: Summer of either 1964 or 65
Location of Sighting: Portland, Oregon – West hills – Near Hillsdale
Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): 1 UFO – Saucer shaped – The entire saucer was glowing orange like a coal in a fire.
Distance of UFO(s) in sky: I couldn’t say but when it stopped over head, from our view point it was about 12-18″ in size, so very clear to see. It stopped completely and at a slight angle.
Direction of Travel for UFO(s): We first saw what we thought was a falling star that come down from the Big Dipper. We were on a deck and facing south and it was about midnight. The light then began flying towards our direction crossing some distance away in front of us and eventually came around a group of trees and by that time was close enough for us to clearly see the actual shape of the saucer. It came to a full stop above us and paused for maybe 30 seconds or a minute, and then went from a complete stop to clear out to the horizon in maybe a second. The horizon again was south.
Further Description of Sighting: When the saucer came around the trees and stopping above us, it looked about the length of a football or 12-18″, solid in form and literally glowed orange like a coal in a fire. It was absolutely saucer shaped. Again it went from a complete stop to flying south in about a second and was again a mere light in the distance.
I spoke to a young woman years later that happen to live next to that house years after I had lived there and she too had seen a UFO while living in that house. She recalled learning that the house on the other side of the house I had lived in also saw a UFO from that location. . . Interesting that 3 houses in a row but in different years all saw a UFO. . . ?
I was young at the time and did not get a photo.
