Oval Shaped Object Floats in Sky. Object Looked Like Lamp Shade With Flame.
Date of Sighting: August 22, 2011
Time of Sighting: 9 PM PDT
Location of Sighting: Portland, Oregon (See Map)
Description: I saw an oval shaped object that looked like a lamp shade with flame in middle, but there was nothing attached. It floated away from us, but at first it looked like it was going to fall on us.
Note: The witness may have photographed a Chinese Lantern?
Comments Sent by Witness: It was not a Chinese Lantern. It was very large. There was a flame inside that was exposed. As it travelled toward the trees I feared a fire would be started. It flew quickly then hovered and then flew East until out of sight. It scared us.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting. Be detailed in your description.
