Man Sights Long Cylindrical Object With 3 Bulbous Protrusions

Time of Sighting: 8:35 PM PDT
Date Sighting Reported: June 23, 2007
Duration of Sighting: 4 Minutes
Location of Sighting: Portland, Oregon
Latitude: 45.5 Degrees North
Longitude: 122.9 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Scattered Clouds With Bases at 7,000 Feet. Broken Cloud at 8,500 Feet. Visibility 10 Miles.

Description (In Witness's Own Words): I sat on my bed, looking at the sky as I frequently do. Then I saw a white point of light, identical to the one from the Portland video on your website from a few months ago. (Click here to read about this sighting.) It also looked the same as the object I saw the previous two times. I quickly grabbed my binoculars and observed it for about 4 minutes. It was long and cylindrical, like a pipe or a pencil. I also noted what appeared to be three bulbous protrusions along the length of the object, spaced apart from each other by one-third of the total length of it. It drifted slowly towards the south, slightly southeast. Without the binoculars it appeared very far away. (It was above the clouds in the partly cloudy sky.) I have no way of telling you how large. There is a slight possibility that it was some kind of balloon train/weather gadget, given the spherical bulbs along the length of it. I'm not sure about that. Are such devices even used these days? Surely not, given advances in doppler radar, etc. I last saw it still drifting in the same direction, towards the south/southeast. This would seem to indicate that it was probably not any kind of alien spaceship, since TRUFOS generally behave in ways that seem far more remarkable. I see a lot of strange stuff in the Portland sky, particularly at night. Some of them are very high points of light which move too fast for a satellite (I think). Strange... Too bad I wasn't there for the Redmond, Oregon, incident of September 24, 1959. See Dolan's "UFOs and the National Security State," introduction, pg. XXIII, for an apt description of that amazing incident.

Investigator's Notes: The witness has provided his report in explicit detail. He is not claiming that he saw a UFO and seems to indicate doubt. This same witness reported a sighting on March 12, 2007. (Click here to reading about this sighting.) Given the characteristics described by the witness I don't know what he saw. The sighting was not a weather balloon because the nearest location where a weather balloon would have been launched was Salem and the launch would have been at 5 PM PDT. The balloon would have not been aloft at the time of the witness's sighting.
