Location: Aloha, OR
Shape: Sphere
Duration:2 seconds
Large sphere entering clouds at high rate of speed.

My wife and I were pulling up at the store and my wife said "what is that?" When I looked, it was already gone. The object was (we are going to quess was about 10,000 ft.) up in the cloud range. There were very large patches of blue sky and lots of clouds as well. Just above a large section of clouds my wife saw a large sphere (about the size of an eraser head held at arm's length). It was extreamly bright, she almost said it looked like a light but for some reason said that she though that it wasn't, like it was metalic. The object dove into the cloud range at a very high rate of speed. Much faster that anything she has seen in the sky before. We got out of the car and looked at the range of clouds for several more minutes, but nothing else happend. She also said that the object flew in an arc as it entered the cloud range and left no trail.
