Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Disk
Duration:15 Seconds
I went out to lock my car at 11:33 PM on September 2nd and saw a white disk shaped object streak across the northern sky.

The sighting was about 11:33 p.m. Sept 2, 1998. White luminous disk traverses 70% of the northern horizon from east to west in 1 to 2 seconds parallel to horizon. It was too high to be a plane over the Portland Airport yet quit low and too parallel to the horizon to be a shooting star. Within 10 seconds another (more faint) object was seen traveling at a high rate of speed (yet much slower) in a northerly direction over (what I would call) the coastline of Oregon. This was too fast to be a plane but much slower than the east-west object. Yet both objects had a similar destination west of the coastline of the Northwest U.S. and disappeared.
