Description (In Witness's Own Words): I saw another white sphere on Nov 23rd 2007. I saw the sphere to the NORTH from my EAST window view. I saw it hovering and watched it move VERY STEADY and SLOWLY. It moved from the EAST going to the WEST direction. I watched it for about 10 seconds to be sure it was not a plane, balloon or bird. I then turned on the camcorder and started trying to tape it at 3:37 pm (15:37) and it was moving a bit out of my view so I decided to pause the camcorder, get on the coat and shoes and run out to the east side of my house. This took about 2 minutes. I get out there and it's very WINDY and cold but sadly I could not see the object anywhere! I looked for about 10 minutes and went inside thinking I did not get anything on video. For some reason, I believe it was going against the wind direction, but I can't be sure as I did not get the weather report looked up after the sighting. I didn't think I caught anything on tape so I did not bother to look at the weather report online at the time. Well, I just reviewed the video today, and found I did capture a few frames of it on video in the few seconds. I tried to tape this thing when I first saw it from inside the house. I did not think I caught any of it, but I did. The sighting was only for about 20 to 30 seconds, and the video is not much to go on, but at least I know I wasn't just seeing things and I am POSITIVE it was NOT a plane.

Investigator's Notes: These white spheres have been frequently seen in Portland and many other areas. The identity of these spheres is a mystery, but one possibility is that they are remnants of contrails left by aircraft. The air was dry on this day in Portland so most of the contrails would likely have evaporated rapidly. Some portions of the contrails could have remained for a few minutes, but eventually would evaporate and would therefore disappear. There is no direct evidence for this explanation, but it is a possibility.
