Location: Gresham, OR
Shape: Triangle
Duration:?minute(s)
Clear night & sky - no other aircraft. Saw strange lights in NE not like regular aircraft. Am trucker, kept catching glimpse of lights thru trees as driving east. Not much traffic. Looked over toward trees just as the bottom of the aircraft turned down to face me with one corner, just across the lanes of the westbound freeway. Huge, silent w/laser type red rays emitted from opening that went deep inside craft. I could have parked my truck in that opening with a 2-3 others. Never heard anyone discribe one this close, nor the "lasers" from nose before. This is not my first UFO - but it was definately of the "Closest" Kind and felt ominous, not friendly as if trying to intimidate - following my movement in a slow turn (I was almost at a crawl by then)No other traffic. Then it slowly turned to the west and I could only make out the big dark triangular shape - no lights, or sound but it was out west of Portland's PDX in no time. More/next night and one month later. I couldn't get your number from the Seattle operator at the time - I tried when I got home. They are out there often, but have lights in the shape of an airplane turned on underneath so you can barely make out the triangle shape against the sky, for the brightness of those lights. They always are headed West,NW.
