Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Light
Duration: 30 Seconds
Characteristics: The object changed color
Bright, White light moving North from South, Below the Moon.

Looking at the moon (To the East) noticed a bright light moving slowly from the South towards the North about ten degrees below the moon and about the same distance to the south of the moon, moving Northerly gaining brightness for about 15 seconds, and moving very slowly. Then just as it was when it came into view, began to loose brightnes...until there was nothing left to see. It moved very little in a Northerly direction, maybe a degree at most. It left no trail, did not come back into view and only changed color in the spectrum of white light. Very Bright, white light, and in Size was twice as big a Jupiter to the naked eye. Brighter than the cresent Moon.
