|Oregon City Sighting on 5/29/2010 - Approximatley 12 red-orange lights ascending in the east.
May 29th, 2010. At approximately 10:30pm I was leaving my office in downtown Oregon City. I was walking to the place I normally park under the bridge when I remembered it was Saturday and I had parked right in front of the office where the meters donít run on weekends. As I was heading back, facing east, I noticed four (4) lights over the cliff where the big Oregon City elevator is - Which coincidentally is shaped like a UFO. They looked fairly high up, about as high as a plane would be coming in for landing at PDX from that distance - Ten thousand feet, (10,000) maybe? They ascended slowly upwards, appearing over the cliff. Although they were shaped like a triangle, it was apparent they were separate objects in a triangle formation. As they rose the formation began to break up and they criss-crossed each other. They gradually faded the higher they climbed, eventually disappearing altogether. As one formation began to fade another rose up over the cliff a! nd as similar pattern was repeated. They moved slow and consistent, like balloons being released on a calm day. There was no mistaking them for balloons, however, it was very dark and they were lit up by their own light sources, not the sun or moon. There appeared to be 12 total but I could be wrong. I was frantically trying to call my workmate who was still up in the office to get him to come down and see. He made it down in time to see about 4 of the remaining lights before they faded. The lights were red-orange in color and they did not blink, flare up or change shape. They were simply very bright as the rose over the cliff and faded the higher they climbed. We waited about 10 minutes to see if anymore appeared, but that was it. End of show. On a personal note, I am 34 and have never seen a UFO before, of any kind, except on film. The behavior of these lights reminded me very much of some films I have seen of UFO clusters in the day time. Silver orbs floating arou! nd like balloons, eventually ascending and fading out. Only t! his time they were at night and emitted a bright, red-orange light.
