Duration:5 sec.
Caller witnessed a triangular-, or wedge-shaped object, with rectangular white lights on both sides--6-8 per wing, he thought--in the southwest sky. The center portion of the wedge was all black, or dark, and was not visible. No blinking lights on the object. Observer estimates that the overall length of the object was 200-400, although he recognizes that it would be very difficult to estimate its length accurately.

His impression was that it was not very high, perhaps a couple hundred above ground level. It appeared to be flying to the southwest.

He got our number from the Hillsboro, OR, airport.
