Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Circle
Duration:20 minutes
Two disc-shaped objects observed over Portland West Hills for 20 minutes, then they disappeared.

Viewed from Vancouver, WA. Saw two groups of 2 disc-shaped objects, bright silver/white, one over Portland West Hills (between the TV towers on Skyline Blvd I believe - I grew up there-, the other over Happy Valley area perhaps? They first looked like helicopters, but very steady and no rotors visible.

Then, second observer with binoculars saw the saucer shape with glowing lights quite clearly. No noise was heard, no vapor trail, etc. Sky was clear and calm winds.

We observed from the ridge north of PDX and saw other airplane traffic as usual for this time of the evening (light traffic). It surprised us that no fighter planes were dispatched, since they appeared over the Portland metro area.

I took digital pictures but there were quite blurry and probably not useful, but they do document where the objects were seen.
