Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Disk
Duration:5 min.
Black saucer wobbled slowly as it gained altitude.

One object seen. Black disc, wobbling (similar to a coin spinning slowly on desk), horizontal orientation, 1 wobble/second. Wobble allowed a clear disc shape to be seen, then flat and not any noticable hight dimension to it. Gained altitute slowly from about a 30 degree angle off of the horizon against an overcast sky. Moved to my left while rising until it reached the lower level of clouds, then it moved to the right and eventually stopped moving or gaining altitude at approx. 65 degree angle from horizon. Eventually, the clouds covered it. Also, there were no lights or any other markings visible on the craft which seemed about a mile away. To my eye, at that distance, it looked about the same size as a street sign from 60 yards away. No helicopter or jet sounds heard.
