Description: This report has really got my interest. On January 1st, 2014 I was living in Sellwood, OR. A neighborhood in the SE quadrant of Portland. Around 9:45 PM I was biking home past Reed college on Tacoma. Riding in a western direction, at night, on my bicycle. Shortly before approaching the bridge I began to notice lights out of the corner of my vision. I couldn’t do more than glance at first because as I said I was riding my bike and it was a fairly dark and curvy road. I kind of wrote it off in my head as an airplane but it wasn’t making a sound, and it was LOW. I crossed over the expressway bridge and this thing was getting closer on my left side. It kind of dawned on me that this was no plane. The strangest thing was it was not that late out. Yes, it was New Year’s Day, I was angry that I had been forced to work, and I was anxious to get home. But there was literally no one on the street, no traffic. It was just me and this Triangle. So after crossing the expressway bridge I turned left onto a side street, and I got off my bike, and this thing hovered right over me. I could have hit it with a rock. That is how close it was,. It was no more than 30 to 40 feet above me at max and that’s being generous. It made no sound except for a slight hum that I more felt than heard. I remember the light at each corner and one in the center. I focused on the center light and remember looking into it pretty much hypnotized. And then it was over just like that. The thing slowly took off at a kind perpendicular angle towards the river and I just watched it go. The whole incident couldn’t have been more than 5 to 10 minutes from the time I first spotted it out of the corner of my eye. So I should’ve still been home at or before ten PM. However when I did get home I found I was missing about 30 to 40 minutes as it was close to 10:45 PM. I didn’t say a word to my girlfriend or roommates. Didn’t go blabbing on social media. I kept it for myself.
