Date of Sighting: June 2, 2010
Time of Sighting: 10:20 PM PDT
Location of Sighting: Portland, Oregon Over Columbia River (See Map)

Description: I saw a glowing orange ball traveling east above the Columbia River near Portland. the ball was traveling approximately 100 miles per hour. It was difficult to judge altitude. The clouds were low and the ball did not look to be obstructed by the clouds. This was very unsettling.

Additional Report by Witness (In Response to Investigator Questions): I heard no sound at all. The object was reddish-orange, not exactly a ball. It was difficult to focus on due to the shimmering light. There were a couple planes in the sky and this was definitely not a plane. We are surprised not to have read about it anywhere yet.

Note: The closest airport to where the sighting occurred was Portland-Troutdale. Skies were overcast with cloud bases at 4,900 feet at the time of the sighting.
