NUFORC Sighting 14538

Occurred: 2000-10-13 22:10 Local
Reported: 2000-10-13 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 00:03
No of observers: 2

Location: Portland, OR, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Lights on object

4 white lights initially stationary suddenly merged into one light and then when out.

4 white lights became visible through a patchy cloud cover. It looked similar to Moon light breaking through a cloud, except there were three lights (and a fourth more faint). The three brightest lights were shaped in a triangle pattern and where not moving. They were about an extended arms length apart (like one hand on the 10 and the other on the 2 of a clock). The fourth fainter light was off to one side from our position. They were almost overhead, possibly 15-20 degrees looking down, if looking directly overhead was 0 degress. Suddenly all four lights came together in the middle, they merged, moved down very slightly and then went out. The fourth light seemed to be just a hair behind the other lights as they merged together. The movement happened in about 1 second. The lights seemed to be shining down, but it is difficult to tell as the clouds were obscuring them from a direct sighting.


Witness appears to be describing advertising light, but that is a guess. PD
