Portland

Portland, Oregon, USA; Summer, 1964

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.

Portland, Oregon, USA; August 7, 2008

Name: S.Croraven

Date of Event: 8-7-2008 at 11:45pm to 12:10AM

Location of Event: Portland, OR

Message: I went outside to take my dogs out before closing up for the evening. That night, the sky was partially cloudy but the cieling level (visibility) was quite high. While facing south (since that was the direction my dogs head to to do their business), the pulsing light of a star caught my attention…

The pulse seemed more like one long throb and so I looked up and quickly found that the light I had seen was easily 3 hand-widths above my visible horizon and was not a light coming from ‘space’ (like an actual star).

The light got VERY bright white, then quickly faded out. I stood there thinking it seemed different than planes coming head-on from the south (direction of CA) and actually higher than what would be the norm for incoming jets.

About 5-10 seconds later, the light re-appeared aproximately 2-3 fingers in width to the left of where it started from. From there, it moved incredibly slowly, moving from it’s southern location, towards the north. While watching it, the light continued to fade in and out.

Every time the single light faded out, it would re-appear in a slight different spot and at a slightly different angle than the direction it would be going while remaining lit.

At the light’s smallest, it would look like the standard glow that a satelite would give off as it moved across the sky. At the light’s brightest, it would look like a candle flame.

What was really strange was that about a week prior, both my wife and I had taken our dogs out at around that same time, and I had seen the same light, but it did not re-appear. I just dismissed the incident as a mere fluke, or possibly a shooting-star coming in at a more direct angle as opposed to streaking across the sky.

But on 8-7-2008, I watched that light for almost a half-hour…moving incredibly slowly from the original point I had scene it, to move north about 2 hand-lengths before it simply turned off and was visible no longer.

Since I live parallel to incoming planes, when they come in at night, the lights they have are multi-colored as well as having 2-6 total lights. When they are coming in from the south with the intention to land at PDX, they seem to come in above the visible horizon at about one hand wide…2 tops, before making an easterly turn, which takes them from about the Keizer/Wilsonville air-space to the Clackamas/Estacada air-space, then over Larch Mountain before making a direct bee-line into PDX for a landing. I’ve lived in this area for 20 years…and I’ve seen this general flight pattern day after day.

Now, since I’ve seen this light TWICE…within a week…I want to know what the heck it is. It was not a plane, nor a satellite, and it was not a helicopter. It was higher than the clouds, but not in what I would consider ‘space’. If it was in ‘space’ then I would be inclined to say the object would be huge if that were the case.

I’ve had the opportunity to see rocket launch, the shuttle land, and satellites fall to earth…not to mention some awsome meteor related displays…but I’ve never seen a ‘light’ like that.

If anyone can shed some light, let me know.

Thank you!

Message: Me and two friends were swimming in my pool in the backyard. WE noticed a ship of some sort to our right appearing in the distance just like a plane but not blinking. It would appear at the farthest point in the sky and travel slowly closer but still far away and dissapear. We started to notice that once it dissapeared it would appear at the beginning point. Once we began having interest in this we noticed that the ship or whatever began coming directly at us slowly i think? i swear it was like a dream!

The ship came directly over my pool and hovered for at least a minute roughly 40 foot above our heads. It made no noise had lights but you could not tell what they were if that makes sense. It was not like a bulb from a plane. At first i think we were just stunned at the size of it. A huge Rectangle ship NO wings! We kept looking for them because we could not believe a ship could be a rectangle< but it was. We finally snapped out of our stare and started running for the side of the pool to get out and tell everyone inside.

Just as we started moving it started moving backwards and turned to the left ove my sisters room. As i got to the sliding door i turned to look at it one more time as i did it tilted downward and blue a flame or something about 20 or more feet and shot into the street and dissapeared. Sounds crazy but its true! it only made a sound when it disappeared which shook the plates off my walls. My friends and I were the only ones to visually see this that night that im aware of.

My parents came rushing outside as did all my neighbors. everyone felt it but noone was outside. I will never forget that day for the rest of my life. Some i tell will not believe me but we know what we saw. ON the news they said they were doing test at the navel base in Corpus..I DONT THINK SO!! Thanks for hearing my story.
