Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 45 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
High up and West of where we were (North Portland), possibly over the Coastal Range, we saw about 5 smaller fireballs in close proximation to each other, sparking and leaving a trail, moving relatively slowly towards each other at a diagonal, then merging into one large fireball.

Once merged it came down horizontally, also very slowly, leaving a short tail.

To us it was as if the smaller fire dots were missiles shooting at an object and leading it to explode.
