Case File Information

Description: Hello. Today, November 20th, 2013 I was on my way to work when my boss called and told me we weren’t working at the previous location. So I turned around and was driving from Aloha to Beaverton on TV highway and saw something burning in the sky and what looked like a star came out of it rather slowly, floated down and then hovered. I got a picture with my phone that I will attach. I have a few pictures. In the one I attached you can see the star like thing that came out of it. It was around 7 AM.

If we could first talk through email I would be more comfortable.

Note: The witness said that several other reports of the object were reported in the Portland, Oregon area. 

So far no one has been able to explain this object.  Was it space junk?  Was it a meteor? Who Knows?

 

Portland TV Fox Channel 12 Report

 

November 20, 2013 – What Was That in the Morning Sky Over Oregon?

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - Something in the sky Wednesday morning had people in the Portland metro area looking up and asking, “What is that?”

The Fox 12 newsroom received several photos of objects passing through the sky above Oregon shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday.

One FOX 12 viewer wrote she noticed “a strange line in the sky” in Beaverton.

“As it continued down, the trail behind it started to spread out as you can see in the pictures. Then it lit up like a fireball,” she wrote.

Another witness on Marine Drive said he spotted three objects in the sky around 7:15 a.m.

“I ran inside to grab my camera after I saw the first two and when I came out this one was breaching our atmosphere,” he said.

Jim Todd, OMSI’s director of space science education, said some of the photos seem to depict an explosion. That would indicate it’s a fireball. However, one thing is missing for that to be the case.

“So far, there is no indication there was a sonic boom,” he said.

Todd said it could also be a contrail that formed behind an airplane. He said what looks like an explosion in the photos could actually be the rising sun reflecting off a cloud layer.

“The verdict is still out whether it was a fireball or a contrail,” he said.

Just three weeks ago, a fireball was reported above the Pacific Northwest and investigated by the American Meteor Society.

When I decided to keep my eyes on it that's when it started to move around. At first I just assumed it was an airplane since they no…
