Posted: 10/27/2004
Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Light
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Two objects, both red, one appeared to slowly fade, the other moved out of view behind trees in a quick stop/start motion.

I saw a pair of red lights. I was looking North by Northeast, near the star I believe to be Capella. I'm a little rusty with my star names.

It is a mostly clear night, with some faint, fast moving low clouds that passed near the two lights. At first, the clouds gave the appearce of movement, however, the lights appeared to remain stationary in relation to a nearby telephone pole.

I looked over to my mother and brother, to see if they were looking at what I was seeing. One of the objects moved to the down and to the right of their orriginal position. Then, the light that didn't move faded. I didn't know where the other light went, however, my brother saw it move in two rapid, stop-start movements out of view behind some trees.
