Location: Vancouver, WA
Shape: Formation
Duration:20 minutes
Three bright lights in formation.

Formation of 3 bright orbs seen from SE Portland.

My wife, son and I observed what looked like bright aircraft lights over east Portland, in the vicinity of Rocky Butte.

As we watched it, we saw that it was actually three lights, moving in various formations: triangular, horizontal, and almost vertical. They was moving very slowly in the beginning.

Two of the lights departed to the east and were lost from view, while one appeared stationary to the west of Rocky Butte for several minutes before flying east as the others had done.

My son recorded the lights on his cell phone camera for several minutes. what we saw is very similar to a Portland sighting reported February 15, 2015.
