|Bright round object seen in the sky and then disappeard as if it were leaving the atmosphere. It seemed VERY SHINEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was getting close to sunset and we were at the Willamette river in Milwaukie, when I looked up and saw a round bright light....then it just disappeared, like it went up into the atmosphere. I am prior Air Force and have seen lots and lots of aircraft coming and going and maneuvering in the sky and I've not seen anything like this before. I have also seen aircraft reflect the sun (like this may have been, not sure tho) but the thing with this was the fact there was no slow moving plane...we sat there and looked and looked for an aircraft after that and there was NONE. The light I feel must have been a reflection of the sun, and it was a round reflection, like whatever it was was round or perhaps it could have been the underside of it? (engine???). Who knows, but it was there and it was gone ...I know that meteor's have been coming into the atmosphere and it did not look like that because there was no tail or smoke or fire.....and it did not look like it had fallen into the atmosphere, it looked like it was leaving the atmosphere tho....
My son has better eyes than I do and he didn't see a plane afterwards either, but he did see something bright disappear, like I did....
