flying triangle over portland airport

1245 am june 6 from ne 162nd and glisan area of portland, or, usa i noticed a throbbing red light and additional white lights on an apparent aircraft in the sky doing slow, lazy, SILENT circles at approx 60 degrees off horizon 1/2-3 miles east of me over the columbia river between the troutdale airport and pdx.

i was fairly well under it as it banked nw and noticed three white lights showing a triangle as as well as what i would say was about 8 lights under the front, but giving me the impression of a well light interior and perhaps 3 levels deep.

i figure the size as 2/3 - 1/2 of that of a commercial aircraft as they fly over me daily from this residence for the last 45 years. i know planes flying over me when i see them. it made 3 large circles maybe 3 miles in diameter then slowing went north towards mt st helens.

no commercial or private aircraft were seen then for about 70 minutes. unusual in itself.
