Duration: 5-10 sec.
|Myself and a co-worker were driving west on Tualitin Valley highway about 11:35AM, about 200 yards before the turn to 141st street I saw four silver objects motionless in the sky. As we drove closer I could see that they were not balloons. There were low clouds so I had a good background to judge distance and size, maybe 400-500 feet in altitude, about 25-35 feet long. The wind was blowing pretty good but the objects were completely motionless against the moving cloud background. They had a strange shape, almost looked like silver acorns! They had what looked like a seam where the bottom of it connects to the top but were rotated 90 degrees so they that were laying on their side. I got a good look at them for about 8-10 seconds before we had to turn. We came back the other way about 20 minutes later and they were gone. I drive this route everyday. Not very dramatic, just some odd things hanging in the sky.
