Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Changing
Duration:20 minutes
In bright daylight, bright object observed-thru binoculars it looked wierd-second bright object traversed path of first.

I was lying out tanning. I saw a bright object that seemed to change shape. I called out my 13 yr. old son. While he kept track, I got out the binoculars. Using them, it seemed that there were several smaller bright objects clustered. Since it was moving in the general direction of the one high cloud(although at a different speed), Maybe a weather balloon? Another bright single starlike object came into the binocular view. This thing approached then went by the first thing. This was at a right angle to the direction of the first object. I'm 45 yrs. old., and a manager at a grocery store. My son will go into the eighth grade this September. Total time observing the first object is about 20 minutes. The second object came and went within 1 to 2 minutes. My son says that the second object "looked like a moon."
