Shape: Formation
Duration:20 seconds
My friend and girlfriend were with me at my house, just spending time. We decided to go out and smoke a cigarette, so we did. We come outside and look to the sky like always, just waiting to finally see something, since there has been rumors all around town of strange activity in the skies, just a lot of activity rather than strange. While we are gazing, we notice something quite peculiar.

What we first saw was what we thought was merely a formation of 3 commercial planes, but there was something strange about it. They were completely horizontal and on the same plain. Also they were the exact same distance from eachother. They looked liked 3 separate blinking red lights in the sky, off in the distance. Then we all started to realize that it looked as if it was one huge craft, rather than 3 independent ones.

Also it was relatively low to the ground and not going up or down, just staying level and moving forward. A few strange details are that the nearby airplanes that use the Portland international airport did not have any changes in their flight patterns. They didn't wait for it to leave or wait for possible clearance to land, which is strange because it was so close to the airport. But it makes me think that it could have been under the radar. So only civilians saw it.

On a last note, we are not the only witnesses in town to see this event. We got onto a local reporters Facebook website and noticed that someone reported the exact same event as us. There are many new reports coming out of Portland, Oregon. So please watch the area:-)

PS : we had strange things happen to our satellite signal later that night.
