Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:at least 40 minutes
3 bright white lights in traingular formation with no noticable sound and in seemingly fixed position seen in SE Portland Oregon area

Driving south bound on I-205 we saw three bright white lights in a triangular formation. When we first noticed them we were in the area of Powell bvld. They were stationary and very low and no sound that we could detect. We also saw a helicopter that seemed to be pretty close to the light at the triangal tip. The helicopter left and shortly after we saw an airplane. the third light became invisible to us but the two stayed in exact formation but seemed to be traveling southbound. When we arrived to our destination, (Oregon City) the two lights were still in what appeared to be exact distance from each other as when we first saw them. They seemed to be stationary again for some time. I went outside to look at them a few times for the next fifteen minutes and the last time I checked they appeared to be on the move again but still in formation.

What is interesting is that there were other people on the freeway who had to see them. The helicopter and plane certainly did but no report on news or in the morning paper. Even if they were blimps or something explainable, it would seem that lots of people would have called in.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the witness was observing the three planets, visible in the southwest sky. PD))
