Description (In Witness's Own Words): My sighting was on May 30 2007 and first seen at 19:45 to 20:15 PDT. I observed these objects for around 30 minutes! When I first saw this object, I saw only one- then later I saw two. To the naked eye it looked like a very small white sphere that did not move (sort of like a planet), but it looked very different when viewed through the binoculars. (See drawing above.) At one point while viewing it with binoculars, the center of it suddenly flashed a strange metalic gold. I tried to video tape this object from inside my home while my camcorder was on the tripod. I could see this object in the East directly above the neighboring trees nearby around 7:45 pm. I started video taping around 7:49 pm. After a few tries (only caught a few bits of it on video), I ran outside to have a closer look at this with my 10X50 binoculars. After observing it more closely for several minutes, getting a good look at what it was (see drawing ) I then decided to run back in the house and try to tape this again. I grabbed the camcorder and ran back outside and started to video tape again at 7:57 pm. Again, I was only able to get a few quick shots of this object on video. It was VERY hard to find this in the camera viewer lens of my JVC 25X optical camcorder - and its much to harder to find it on the LCD screen during daylight, and it was too small to pinpoint and focus on the object. I continued to try off and on attempts at capturing it on video. (Not easy to do in clear blue skies.) I had to use the trees and far distant planes with contrails to help reference about where they were above in the blue sky. The video overall is about 9 minutes. (because I would pause for a bit, then try to record through out the video). These objects were observed from around 7:45 pm to 8:15 pm. The last part of my video records a few frames of both objects at 8:15 pm just before they head up a bit higher above the one huge fir tree then they head NORTH against the 7 MPH winds that were coming FROM the WNW!. I gave up trying to record them, and ran inside to see if I could still see them, but could not. I immediately checked the weather conditions and it confirmed to me that these were not balloons because they headed away to the NORTH against the winds that night.

Investigator's Notes: The witness took about 25 minutes of video footage. She has edited the footage to slow the frame rate and she added graphics to emphasize the objects. The above video only includes about 20% of the footage, but does show the best footage of what the witness captured. Some of the footage shows contrails and a jet aircraft. It is not believed that the white objects in the above video are airplanes, helicopters, or balloons. The witness presents a good argument that the objects moved into the wind and were therefore not balloons. (The airport wind direction was NNW at Portland International Airport at the time of sighting. This differs slightly from the WNW direction stated by the witness.) The witness also viewed the objects through binoculars. Her drawing above shows the appearance of one of the objects through binoculars. It appears that up to four objects appeared in the video (two groups of two). This same witness has sent other excellent footage of unknown objects in the sky. She did say that the footage really doesn't show what she saw. The drawing better illustrates what was seen. I don't know what the witness captured in the above video frames. Some of the frames eliminated show a jet with contrails, but the content in the above footage is a mystery.
