Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 seconds
It was triangular in shape, but hard to describe, because of so many different angles.

Well, it was not my plan to report this, because I have never in my life seen something like this, and figured no one would believe me. After listining to the Art Bell show last night I figured "why not" so here I am. I work for a hospital in the Portland area. I start work at 2300 hrs and usually arrive around 2245 hrs. On this night I pulled into the parking lot, and began my short walk to the engineering shop where I work. I am not sure why, but I just happend to glance in the sky, and I saw this object traveling across the sky at an increadiable speed. It was not real high. I would say about 500 meters up. It was solid black with a strange triangular shape with a lot of sharp angeles. It had no lights on it at all, and made no noise what so ever. It traveled from the south to the north, and went from my field of view within 3 seconds or so. It gave me the chills because I know I did not imagine what I just saw. I was able to see it because there was a heave cloud cover this night, and the city lights put a white glow on the clouds. When this solid black object came across the sky, it was not hard to miss against the city lit clouds. This object was fairly big. I would say about 75 to 150 feet long, so it appeared to me. If you do happen to call, please call after 1700 hrs. I wake up at 1630 hrs each day.
