Duration:Seconds
Brilliant with varied shape, blinks out and moves to another part of the sky in one second before blinking out again.

Only saw for about 3 or 4 seconds. I was driving east facing Portland on Canyon Lane. The object was above Portland's West Hills close to Sylvan. It caught my eye as I cleared some trees. Whatever it was looked brilliant, a silver white light. The shape varied in it's dimensions. At that point I was trying to figure out what I was looking at, when it just blinked out! Then came back in about a second, a good distance from where I first saw it. I was amazed at how fast it had moved! I'd never seen anything like this in the 25 years driving on weekend nights after work. Then it blinked out again and I lost it. I continued to look as I drove but never saw it again.
