Huge UFO passing between opening over the city of Portland, Oregon

Coming down OHSU Hospital in Portland, Oregon which is on a hill above the city. It was winter and the sky was clouded and grey, but there was like an opening between the clouds and below it you could see the city lights. It was about 8 PM on a Sunday night. As I was going down the hill, looking at the city, suddenly a huge, immense, flying object started passing almost in front of me, and on top of the city. I stop the car in the middle of the road as I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was flying low, so low I could see how huge it was. Unbelievable... it was almost at the bottom of the heavy clouds passing the opening in the sky. I could see it passing, like in slow motion, like almost hoovering, without making any noise, nothing. It was in a tilt position, like a dish, a plate... Huge, immense,like a football field,looked round but it was so big it could have been oval because the border of the tilt make me feel it was round or oval, looked heavy, the color was clear grey metalic but it was not shiny, on the tilted side I could see, there where four roads of blinking lights, like the christmas lights. I didn't see the top because it was tilted, only the bottom and the lights around the side. After being in my car looking at this scenario, I decided to walk outside the vehicle, to see if someone else was seeing it. But when I stepped out and looked at the sky, the flying object had dissapeared.

I returned to the hospital as I was so impressed... I told my story to the ER doctors I work with and everyone believe me. I was told they see things like that all the time. For me was the first and the last. I called the Air Force, the TV stations, the airport, but no one give me any attention. I do believe that I saw a UFO, I think I was fortunate to see something like that in my life. It was too wide and too long, and absolutely quiet to be anything I have ever seen. It was not an airplane or a flying globe. This was a huge, immense object, so big, it couldn't be confused with any known thing. May be a mother ship? I will never forget this experience, I could take a test to verify my story.
