Location: Beaverton, OR
|I was driving south on Murray Blvd at about 2:00pm in the afternoon. I was in a long line of traffic where Murray Blvd. Crosses over Tualatin Valley Highway.
As I was sitting in traffic I observed what looked like a shiny silver balloon in the air. It was about 300-400 feet above the ground and I estimate that the size was 2 or 3 feet around. It was drifting slowly from east to west along the Highway.
After watching it for 2-3 minutes the object took off suddenly and flew west, performed a roll and changed direction to the S. W. and then rolled again and headed directly south. When it accelerated and rolled, the object looked like the typical disk shaped UFO with a flat top that was on top of the disk shaped object.
I did not call the police or anyone to report this but I did discuss it with family immediately after it happened.
