UFO Oregon

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.

We heard no sound or saw no movement.

We did not say anything about this at the time. I don’t remember anything after that. I did mention it to my sister many years later to see if she remembered seeing this and she said she did, but we did not remember anything else.

Then it was just gone?
