Date of Sighting: January 26, 2009
Time of Sighting: 4:45 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Portland, Oregon

Description: I was waiting in morning rush hour traffic in the west hills of Portland. I noticed a thin, white line that looked like a small contrail, but noticed there was nothing trailing it or in front of it. It was not moving, but then I noticed it was moving very, very slowly. This was at 8:30 AM on Monday, January 26, 2009. At 4:45 PM I had an impulse to look out my window, and there it was, high above me. I quickly called my children (8 & 9) to come look. I told them it was exactly what I had seen. Again, it was just moving slowly. I grabbed the camera and took video of it. Then the video just went black and was not recorded. I did manage to get one photo of it, at a distance, but this is what I had seen twice at different times of the day, right over me, but high up. I looked to see if there were any comets in the area or if anyone else saw it. Look to the right of the tree, and you'll see a white line.

Note: I believe that the white line could be a contrail left over from a flight of a high flying jet aircraft. However, this is speculation and not known for sure.
