Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:5 seconds
Bright white cylinder, or sphere, makes rapid descent & disappears.

Iridescent bright white (lit up with a squid like external appearance - no tentacles..just the body portion) cylinder type object fell from the sky at a rapid speed. It appeared out of nowhere and made its decent in a manner of seconds. It appeared to disappear before reaching ground. My location is SE Portland and I was viewing the sky in the northern direction.

I do live nearby the PDX airport. That fact has absolutely no bearing on what was seen. Due to traffic noise, unable to determine if it did have any type of sound to it.

Perhaps, due to the speed it came down, it could have been a sphere rather than cylinder.

The lighting of the object may have just made it appear to be a different shape by causing a light trail behind it.

It was not a lantern, falling star or meteorite. I don't know what it was
