|Triangular light formation hovering over Oregon City/ West Linn area Oregon.
Occurred: May 29, 2010 around 9:20pm
I was driving to work from my home getting ready to turn onto I-205 north and to the East above the treeline I saw 3 lights in the sky. They were in a perfect formation of approximately a 25-30% angle triangle with the center point above the other 2 outer low points. The points of light were way to far apart to be any plane or aircraft I have EVER seen! I didn't see any distinct blinking lights like those from an airplane or any other common aircraft. The individual lights would somewhat pulsate in intensity but not a true blink. One light would get brighter though the light didn't radiate outward to appear any larger, just brighter, as another would dim in unison. They seemed to "take turns" dimming/brightening. I don't recall seeing any odd colors just white/yellowy lights.
As I turned onto the freeway ramp I lost sight of it for a moment then regained sight of it to my right as I was heading north. At this point it seemed as if the formation had slightly shifted but gone up a bit higher in altitude, though still too low to the ground for this to be a military type plane formation maneuver. Now the northernmost light was slightly lower than the southern pointing light and it appeared closer to the center light, like how the perspective would warp if you had a solid triangular object and pivoted it slightly clockwise.
At this point a fourth light appeared just barely above the tree line and even further back in the south direction than the back corner of the triangle and much lower. This light seemed brighter and larger than the other three and seemed almost to be a tail??? Upon a quick glance at this point it would almost appear as if the little dipper had lost part of it's tail, it's bottom star, gotten very close to the earth and hovered there above Oregon City.
Unfortunately I was not in a position to stop and shoot footage as I was running late for work. I called home quick to see if my husband could see it but he could not even though we are on a slight hill. The object was just hovering too low for it to be seen from many locations. I say object, yet strange thing is I didn't see any solid object holding these lights in this formation. It was BY FAR the oddest thing I have EVER seen! I have looked all over the internet, called news channels and even the local dispatch and NO ONE else seems to have reported this. This is why I'm posting this here. I am not crazy or anything but some verification that ANYONE else saw this would ease my mind!
Thank you for reading.
