|I'm a pilot.
At dusk, after work, I saw a golden, metallic saucer-shaped object in the sky. It came from the south and was probably at 1,000 feet. It was silent. I thought it was a floating mylar balloon until it stopped in mid air above the Sklyline mountain range (Portland Zoo area).
I got a very good look at it. It looked like two drum cymbals welded together, and may have had a blue glow beneath. Incredible.
It hovered for about a minute. I struggled to get my cell phone powered up, looked up and it was gone. I'm still shaking. I don't intend to tell anyone.
