Three reddish lights seen over Pearl District of Portland, OR

Witness reported sighting to MUFON (per Oregon State Director for MUFON). Witness states he was in the Pearl District of Portland and on his way home from work, when he saw a well-dressed man walking his dog in a park. The man was looking up at the sky with an "expression of wonder and concern", and he turned to the reporting witness and said, "There's three strange lights up in the sky".

Reporting witness continues: ". . . and when I stopped and looked sure enough right where he pointed there they were. Three dim but definite reddish lights, two were right above each other, the third above the two and off to the upper right. They resembled stars in their size and over the course of several minutes the upper two would fade and dim out, then reappear at intervals, independent of each other. Finally they faded for good with the upper right one moving off to the west in the process, the other one just did a stationary fade leaving the bottom light which then faded in and out as well then vanished. They seemed to be a high altitude but as I had no way of establishing scale it's impossible to tell. The gentleman expresses his gratitude at my stopping and telling him what I was seeing as it mirrored his own perceptions and relieved him as he was concerned that he was 'seeing things'. He also told me that he had been watching them for about 5 minutes before I appeared and they had seemed both lower and brighter."
