Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:30 mins
Bright oscillating light in the SW sky. hovered at approximately 10k AGL, then left

A bright white, slowly oscillating (white to slight red then blue) stationary light that appeared to be approximately 10,000 feet AGL. Was not able to observe during object departure but moments ago while writing this i went to look again and it is gone. We observed a few aircraft in the normal PDX approach vectors and there could be no mistake this was not an airplane, helicopter, or balloon. We also compared the object to the many visible stars and the object clearly stood out.
