Posted: 9/2/2005
Location: Tigard, OR
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 4 minutes
Black thin Mantaray shape w/dome and rods no lights or sound. Flew like wing, then moved horizontally in upright vertical position.

Black in color, no lights, no sound.

Shape: Mantaray/Stingray (fish) w/short tail, round dome w/rods protruding. Thin like a lawn/garbage bag, approx. 15ft wide, 20ft in length.

It emerged like a big wing over my neighbors house from south, and slowly flew into my backyard in a swooping motion, then banked to the east into back yard of of east neighbor. It hovered in their back yard in an upright position (round dome up) for about 2 minutes.

In upright position, it moved north directly over peak of roof of east neighbors house, hovering there about 2 minutes. Then, still in upright position, traveled horizontally due east at a rapid pace. We watched it until it disappeared.

The south neighbors house is about 100ft from my patio, the east neighbors house is about 50ft away. Our properties our terraced, we're higher, so my east bank is inline with the neighbors roof top. It was about 20ft from us.

We are about 50 years old. I've never believed in UFO's. Had to think this through before reporting it. I will call the hotline as well.

Thank you for your time.
