Something was flying over downtown Portland on August 6th

My friend was visiting me in Portland a few weeks ago from Germany and he was taking some video of downtown Portland while sightseeing in the aerial tram. Later he was watching the footage after uploading it on his computer and he noticed something hovering over the city like a helicopter but then take with a speed and angle that we don't think could possibly be a helicopter or plane. We have no idea what it was or even if perhaps it was a reflection or something but it sure looks like something that is flying.

I'm interested in seeing what any experts might think. The incident happened on August 6th at around noon and like I said he was in the portland aerial tram looking down over downtown.

As for witnesses there were others in the tram but no one saw anything or had any reaction at the time. We posted the video to youtube to see if anyone else saw anything that day so the link is below so you can see the footage.
