Posted: 1/29/2002
Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Red triangles of light that straightend into column.

I saw what appeared to be two triangular sets of red lights. They appeared to 1500 to 2000 feet overhead. I felt a deep, almost subharmonic vibration as they went over me, there was no audible sound that I could hear.

They tracked directly over me while I was outside on my cell phone to a freind. As we were talking they increased thier speed traveling in a north bound direction, at the same time the lights seemed to seperate and form a straight line/column. They then shot off into the horizon.

I spent 10 years in the USMC, have seen numerous types of US & foreign aircraft. These bore no similarity to anything I had ever seen before.
