Duration:10 minutes
Triangle craft motionless in sky with three bright lights and one strobe seen in Beaverton, Oregon 9:00 PM May 5 2007

I was driving north on Highway 217. Saw the object in a large patch of blue (most of the sky was dark except for the patch I was looking at). It was not terribly high in the sky. First saw the object a short distance after entering the freeway from the Walker Boulevard on ramp, southbound. The object seemed to be just sitting there, seemingly not moving.

I slowed down as I drove, to determine whether it might be moving, or whether it appeared to be standing still simply because I was in motion. Slowing the car down didn’t make a difference. The object continued to maintain its position. The object looked like a triangle, seen head on (that is, a triangle flat on its belly, with the tip facing front). Very bright lights: brighter than I’ve seen on any jet. One very bright light in the front, two others forming a V-formation on either side, but rather closer to each other than far apart. Also, another bright light strobing, but I could not tell its exact location. It occurred to me that it could be a delta wing flyer I’ve heard about from time-to-time. As I took the exit ramp onto Denny Blvd., I lost sight of the object. I tried to exit to a high place to keep observing it, but I was no longer facing in the proper direction to see it.
