West Linn is a Suburb to the South of Portland.

Date of Sighting: July 23, 2009
Time of Sighting: 11 PM PDT
Location of Sighting: West Linn, Oregon (See Map)

Description: I saw lights that resembled an airplane's flickering lights in the horizon, but the object was hanging there for about 6 minutes without moving. The flickering got fast for a moment and then back to normal. After 6 minutes the flickering light disappeared and turned into a powerful yellow light. It looked like a very big star at that point. It was not flickering. It was solid strong yellow light. This part lasted for 2 to 3 minutes. Then it went off. Then the flickering red and blue lights came back and the object started to move toward my house. It was pretty low maybe 300-400 feet. I could not see the object itself while it was passing over my house, but I can say it might have been of triangular shape based on the location of the lights. There were 2 red lights and 1 blue light. It made a sound like hair dryer on the low setting. Considering the object was flying low, and it was that quiet I thought that it cannot be an airplane.

Note: The witness didn't see an airplane. I don't have an explanation for this sighting.
