Large rectangle shaped craft. Large white lights at each end, moving very slowly, at low altitude, and no sound.

I drive a wood chip truck and travel to various mills and wood processing facilities in the Willamette Valley and southern Washington.

Friday, 6-19-2015, at approx. 19:45, I witnessed two military Blackhawk helicopters flying near Halsey, OR, at around 100 feet elevation, and thought it was a little odd, but dismissed it.

I then proceeded to Camas, Washington, and at approx. 22:45, while traveling eastbound on Hwy 14 in Washington, saw 4 or 5 Blackhawk helicopters hovering over the Columbia River, spaced around a half mile apart or so.

I unloaded at the mill then headed west on 14, and turned south on to the 205 freeway and then south on I-5, and continued south heading back to Eugene, OR. As I came to the north side of Salem, OR, there was another chopper hovering maybe a hundred feet above the freeway, then another one at about the same elevation on the south side of Salem.

I continued south and took exit 244 just north of Albany, OR, and pulled over to the shoulder of the on ramp to have a smoke. I was outside of the truck and noticed a craft coming from the northwest and it flew directly over me and continued on in a southeast direction.

The craft was flying at maybe 1,500 hundred feet, and incredibly slow, and was completely silent. The craft was shaped basically like a giant ruler, and had large square shaped lights on each side. For comparison if you look at a ruler and go from the end of the ruler to 2 inches on one side and from the end of the ruler to 10 inches that would be comparable to the size of the lights, and From how far the lights were separated it had to be the size of two 747ís sitting wing tip to wing tip..

The lights were white in color and didnít flash or change at all and as it flew past me there was another small white light flashing from one side of the craft to the other. There were no nose or tail lights and really appeared to be a giant skinny rectangle.

I got back in the truck and continued south on I-5, and lost sight of the object over the hills to the southwest, and as I approached Albany, OR, there was another chopper hovering just off to the west of the freeway.
