Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Winds Were From the South at 14 MPH. Few Clouds Were Observed at 4,700 Feet, Broken Clouds Were at 5,500 Feet, and Broken Clouds Were at 25,000 Feet. Visibility Was 10 Miles.
Astronomical Data: The Only Planet Visible During the Daytime (Venus) Set in the West About 3 PM PST.

Description (In Witness's Own Words): Today around 2:40 PM, I went into the living room and opened the curtains to get more light in the room. My one 4 yr old twin boy asked what I was doing and I joked and said "Oh looking for a UFO in those pretty white clouds." Then I showed him a plane in the NE distance, and a crow. Then I looked to the east above the huge trees there and I saw a white sphere! It seemed to come from the west very very slowly then it seemed to dive into a large cloud or maybe the large white cloud moved over the object. At first I thought I was seeing things, then the cloud moved to the north and in the break of the cloud I saw the white sphere again! I then ran into my computer room, turned on the camcorder and found it again as the clouds moved along to the north and the white sphere was still hovering there in the same area. I started to record the object at 2:42 pm (14:42 - I've since corrected my DV camcorder clock since the sighting on Nov 8th - so the TIME shown on the video is correct for this video). I was only able to video tape it for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Many clouds passed on by and I could no longer see it. Shortly after this sighting, I went to verify the weather online to get the wind speed - because as you see in the video, the clouds moved along rather quickly to the north but the sphere did NOT move along with the clouds - so I don't believe this is a balloon.

Investigator's Notes: The witness is correct in that the clouds are moving towards the north (more to the northeast) and the object is NOT moving with the clouds. I viewed the entire video and the object is clearly behind the low level clouds which were nearly 5,000 feet. These facts clearly eliminate birds or "toy balloons." As stated by the witness the object seems to be hovering or moving slowly away from her position towards the east. The witness lives close to Portland Airport and she captured commercial jets in the same video. Several videos and photos have been taken of these objects in the Portland area during the past few years. The identity of these objects remains a mystery. Due to space limitations the video footage of this object is not shown.
