Location: Independence, OR
Shape: Disk
Duration: 20 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
I was driving, it was daylight and the sky was blue and clear, my passenger and I were discussing time as we were late for our event, I looked at the car clock and said we were 23 minutes late (meant to be there at 4:00, hence 4:23 pm) as we were driving, there is a straight stretch of road where 2 fruit fields are, immediately before driving up onto bridge going into Independence. I looked up and saw on small cloud that seemed very odd shaped, domed top, slighted lesser domed bottom and the sides sloped down/up into 'points' - very "classic" flying saucer shaped, only it was white and looked slightly "cloud-like". I jokingly said to my passenger "um - is that a cloaked ufo cloud?" and looked their way, noticing my passenger was leaning forward in their seat, looking up to the left of the "cloud and remarked overlapping me "hey there's something like glinting up there, but nothing's THERE..." and then we looked a! t the cloud again and it was gone, nothing but blue sky, we looked for the shiny glinting spot and it too had disappeared - both in a matter of under about 3-5 seconds. I didn't even have time to ask if they would take a picture with my phone - it was EXTEMELY fast. The cloud shape was directly over south Independence looked to be around the areas of Talmadge Road, Stapleton Road vicinity of south Independence in farm/country, but could be clearly seen as we approached the bridge.
