Location of Sighting: Wilsonville, Oregon
Date of Sighting: September 26, 2017
Time of Sighting: 4:30 to 5:30 AM PDT
I thought I should mention this to a group that might find this interesting. My sighting was from Wilsonville, Clackamas County, OR, on a hillside looking southwest down into the Willamette Valley. The time was 4:30 AM to 5:30 AM and on.
Last night I awoke at 4:30 AM. I saw out the window very bright lights above the horizon in the valley below my hillside home. It did not move, so I became curious and got my telescope (glorified monocular).
What I saw: Two medium sized very bright yellow orbs in parallel. Also in parallel, spaced further out on either side of the yellow orb set, were sets of pin-point orbs in triplets. Each small orb was a different color: green, yellow, red. At this time there may have been another triplet above the medium yellow orb couple.
I watched this arrangement of lights for fifty minutes. During this time, the medium yellow orbs would change size. One stayed mostly constant and the other eventually shrank to the pin point size. Slowly, all the orbs would shift size, visit each other, materialize, disappear, re-appear; inexplicably.
I also saw along the horizon further out from the above described arrangement, additional single orbs and sets.
I eventually became cold and tired. I went to bed at 5:30 AM and they were still visible.
Also I had seen this light in the same location the night before, but didn’t get the telescope, and thought it was an incoming airplane. My prediction is that the orbs are still there and will be there again tonight. Orbs look very similar to the pictures that you have of Lewis County, WA on August 31st and Sept 2, in Vancouver, WA.
The other interesting thing was that stars and constellations above and to the East were incredibly bright and twinkling. They were surprisingly bright.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
