Dear PD, On 11/5/03, my wife described a sighting to me that sounds very similar to one reported by a witness in your database for Portland, OR for the 6th of November. Your other witness saw the object as she was entering I-5 southbound near Lombard St., about 4 miles sw of the tower at PDX. My wife saw a white, circular object hovering in the direction of I-5 & Lombard, but she saw it near the intersection of 102nd & Sandy Blvd., about 3 miles se of the tower at PDX. Could you verify the date with your other witness, because my wife is absolutely certain she saw this object at about the same time on the 5th (it was her day off work and she was running errands)? Unlike you other witness, my wife did not see any fighter jets in the area, but it sounds like your first witness saw the object almost directly overhead, whereas my wife's line-of-sight was more like 45 degrees above the horizon. Thanks and if I can answer any other questions, please feel free to contact me or my wife.

Kind regards, ((name deleted)) Gresham, OR Please note that I have completed the rest of this form based on what the witness (my wife) told me. I haven't checked any of the boxes, because none of the characteristics apply to the object she saw (she said it was a brightly lit white object that never changed colors) and although she wouldn't be opposed to speaking to an investigator and having her name released, she doesn't necessarily require that one contact her.
