Location of Sighting: Portland, Oregon
Date of Sighting: August 27, 2016
Time of Sighting: 11 to 11:30 PM PDT
Description: A man and two other witnesses saw a flashing (or flickering) light nearly straight up in the northwestern sky. The witnesses were outside on a back patio and saw the light. The light was much brighter than a star and would occasionally be obscured by passing clouds. The light suddenly vanished after about 15 minutes. The story becomes even stranger. The witness who reported the sighting said that everyone went to bed shortly after the light vanished. The witness slept on the couch, but woke up in the middle of the night laying on the grass in the backyard with a lump on his head. He had no idea how he got there and has no history of sleep walking.
The witness seemed skeptical of UFO’s and abductions, but said that he had never seen anything like this.
Note: A check of weather showed that skies were mostly cloudy at 13,000 feet and another scattered cloud layer was measured at 5,000 feet.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
