Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Circular shaped light travels quickly across sky in suburbs.

At around 2 am, I arose from bed and looked outside. In less that a minute I saw a extremely bright yellow light (roughly circular in shape) travel from the north and dissappear behind some trees. There was no sound, and it was moving at an extremely rapid speed. I would estimate the total time the object was in my view to be no more than 3-5 seconds.

This is the second time a strange object has been seen in this area. About 12 years ago, a fast moving red light shot across the sky moving west to east during the late evening.
