I have thought about reporting this sighting for years, started to report it many times then decided not to.

Late Summer in 1995 or 1996. My wife and I were laying in bed watching television. Our bedroom was located on the second floor of the house with a sliding glass door leading to a second floor sun deck looking over our back yard. At our fence line there is another back yard a home then a street and then a green way with power lines running down the middle.

Around midnight I got up to turn the television off and close the sliding glass door. I turned off the TV which darkned the room. I turned to close the door and about 150 yards away there was a huge object with colored lights just sitting above the power lines. The lights were not extremely bright but the object was clearly visible.

I said to my wife come here fast. The best way to describe the object is oval shaped. Smooth on top and bottom with an area in between. On both sides the top and bottom came together and were rounded downward.

The object began a slow 360 degree turn. We could clearly make out windows, and what looked like tubes and barrels stuck to the sides of the craft in the area between windows and the top and bottom. I guess you could describe it as plumbing. The window were lit soft white but I could not see in.

This thing was probably three football fields across. I remember thinking I wish I had a video camera this thing was there and right in front of us. We could see it perfectly.

It finished it's 360 degree turn about 50 feet above the power lines and then just shot away at about a 2:00 angle and was gone.

The green way is located on SW Johnson Street between 209th Ave and Cornelius Pass rd. in Aloha Oregon.

This object made no sound.
