Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Circle
Duration: 30 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
my house is approximately 1/4 mile from pdx(Portland airport) i am to the south of eastbound approach and can see aircraft taking off and landing. Last night at around 8:45 pm I was on my back porch talking to a family member on the phone when I noticed a right circular light just above the pdx east bound approach about 500 feet off the ground and if air traffic where coming into pdx this object would of interfered with landing trajectory. The object moved sporadically in different directions for just over a half hour and the light would go brighter at times and the color would change from bright white to bluish. At first I thought maybe a drone but I myself am a drone pilot and quickly realized it was not a drone because I can't even launch my drone anywhere near the airport because of strict FAA regulations with all drones being GPS enabled when i do try to launch my drone it won't go more then 3 feet off the ground with warnings and alarms going off. I ! have a very clear two minute video of the sighting.
