Posted: 6/27/2011
Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Unknown
Duration: ~8 hours+
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Many white lights/objects moving at high speeds throughout the day.

I began taking photographs of the sky at approximately 07:00. I began noticing movement in the sky, but initially wrote it off as my imagination. With the naked eye they were nearly impossible to see; small pinpricks of light moving at very high speeds.

However, they were captured in the photographs. Zooming in on the photos they appear to be small shining orbs or motes of light. They almost resemble stars against the morning and afternoon sky, though I never noticed one sitting still.

They seemed to be most noticable surrounding aircraft.

I would wander outside at irregular intervals to snap a few more photos. I stopped at approximately 16:30, at which time the lights or objects were still active.
