Date of Sighting: June 4, 2011
Time of Sighting: 2:03 AM PDT
Location of Sighting: Portland, Oregon (See Map)

Description: A friend and I were driving eastward around 2:03 AM on E Burnside and E. 166th Ave. in Portland, Oregon on June 4th. He was driving and I was in the passenger seat., texting. We both saw a very bright light in the sky. I observed the light moving across the sky to our east (in front of us). The light was moving northward very quickly and was then being obscured by trees. My friend initially thought it was arcing electricity from a power line. We disagreed about what was seen so we circled the block to look for where an arc of electricity would have cone from. There wasn't anything that we saw on our second trip through the area that could have created an arc that would have accounted for where each of us saw the light. We decided that it had to have been in the sky after stopping and analyzing the area and what we saw. The light was large and right enough to draw me away from my phone screen at night at which time I saw the object moving at a high speed and then disappearing. Out of curiosity we had searched for UFO sightings in Portland, and we saw that there have been a large number this year. I am not certain that what I saw was such a thing, but UFOs are not something that I give frequent thought to so to believe I may have seen one was enough of a jump for myself already. Then to find out later that my area has had a plethora of sightings recently became more than I could dismiss. I hope you may find this useful to your sightings reports.
