Location: Beaverton, OR
Shape: Circle
Duration:90 seconds
Dark circle, or Dot at about 1,000 ft. moving due South to North, at small plane speed at 09:19, with a bizzare field that shimmered...

I was standing outside, facing East, when a dark colored circle, about the size of a pencil eraser held at arms length, appearing to me to be flat, in the sense that it did not appear to be capable of reflecting light (to make a determination as to whether or not it was really a Sphere. It's speed was slow, say small plane speed. It was moving (in course and speed) steadily due south to due North, I saw it only moments ago so I'm curious I if It turned or is heading up to Seattle. The object was only at about 1,000 feet or so, maybe lower.
