Witnessed a rectangular ufo come closer to me but eventually came to a stop (a hover) just above some trees and take off again.

I live close to PDX airport. I was driving along 148th/Halsey and I thought I was seeing just a regular plane take a regular flight path to descend to the airport. All of a sudden I start thinking wow thatís a big plane. Like oddly wide for a plane and the lights were not those of a normal plane. So as Iím driving this object is coming closer and Iím starting to realize this ĒthingĒ is not going to the airport. Mind you, Iím slowing down as this thing approaches me so Iím slowing down more to try to follow it and Within a matter of seconds this aircraft is close AND hovering just above some trees of this dead end street I turned down to try and record itÖIím CLEARLY seeing this rectangular object that can only be described as the shape of a suburban with moonbeams for headlights just hovering in the sky. Completely soundless. Absolutely no sounds came from this thing! There was even a man taking out his trash RIGHT UNDERNEATH THIS THING and he didnít even notice a thing. So by this time Iíve stopped my vehicle in the middle of the road of this dead end street and Iím just watching this thing hover for like another 20 seconds while Iím messing with my phone to try to record this thing and it just silently takes off and disappears. When I was witnessing all this I got goose bumps all over my body and suddenly I felt overcome with terror. Even writing, thinking, or speaking of this event causes the goose bumps and feeling of being afraid. Like I saw something I should not have seen.
