Duration:10-20 seconds
objects seen while waiting on city buses

At approximately 3:30 p.m. I seen and photographed a cigar shaped craft at a high altitude. I was standing on the corner of W. Burnside Street and N.W. 5th ave waiting on a city bus. This craft emited light (but it could have been from the sunlight reflecting off the object). It was not (in my opinion) a regular airplane because there was no wings. I seen this craft cruising around 5 m.p.h. seemingly because of its altitude. I grabbed my camera and managed to take three pictures of it before it vanished. This craft was flying in a straight south to north direction The second craft was see while again waiting for a city bus at the corner of S.W. 5th ave and S.W. Washington Street. This object was much closer to the ground and appeared to be cruising at about 5 m.p.h. also, this craft had no wings. I could see more detail but was not able to tell that much about it because I was not wearing my glasses at the time. This craft appeared at around 3:52 p.m. and both objects were seen over Downtown Portland. I was not able to get pictures of this craft because I was viewing it between buildings as it was flying. Both objects did not emit sound.
