Bright Lemon Shaped Craft Seen Moving Erratically Across Dark Gray Sky

The Sighting Occurred in the Northeastern Part of Portland, Oregon.

Date of Sighting: March 10, 2011
Time of Sighting: 1 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Northeast Portion of Portland, Oregon (See Map)

Description: Around 1 PM I was opening our shades and a flash caught my eye. It had been raining hard just moments before so the sky was pretty dark gray. After focusing my eyes on the area where it was coming from I noticed the sequence in which this object moved in the air. It's shape was similar to a helicopter cockpit or a lemon, but didn't have the tail on the end. After ruling out a plane and even a helicopter, I couldn't help but draw the conclusion of a "UFO". It was in the east towards Gresham. I watched this object move back and forth, side to side then fly across to the north. After stopping it went vertical. This odd shaped object would flash periodically as if it was shiny like a mirror. I would like to know what it was. After a moment it appeared back near the area where I first saw it. The odd thing is it went so high near where the flight path of landing planes at Portland International Airport so I wonder if any air traffic control saw any of this.

Note: Heavy rain showers were observed in the area at the time of sighting. Winds were gusting to 27 mph from the Southwest. The cloud ceiling (base of mostly cloudy layer) was 4,700 feet.
