Description (In Witness's Own Words): Yesterday morning, October 18, 2006, I saw my husband off to work at 6:30 a.m. We live approx. 25 miles south of Portland, OR & one mile east of I-5. As my husband pulled out of the driveway I noticed a cluster of colored lights to the north..mostly clear with some shades of reds and blues. At first I thought it might be a street light or a reflection. No - too high up. Then I thought it might be a Portland news channel helicopter monitoring the I-5 commuter traffic. This triangular (scalene) shape stayed in place for at least 5 minutes. I went into the kitchen to refill my coffee cup and then went back to the front door to see what was going on. These lights had moved a bit to the northeast. Daylight was fast approaching and dark grey clouds were becoming visible. This cluster of lights quickly zipped behind the clouds, again to the northeast. It was NOT the clouds moving to cover the light cluster, but the cluster actually move behind the clouds. I had visually lined this up with regard to rooftops & telephone poles.

Investigator's Notes: The lights were probably close to the witness given the weather conditions in the area at the time. I don't believe that the witness sighted a helicopter because she reported no noise. With limited information I cannot identify what the witness sighted. More information is needed to conduct an adequate investigation.
