Three moving bright lights...
Portland, Oregon - 05-03-17
Shape: Circle - Duration: 20 minutes
@ 2100, hrs. (PDT)—Two witnesses stand outside for twenty minutes, observing three lights in the night sky. The lights appeared to maneuver for several minutes, first forming a triangular pattern, and then arranged into a horizontal, straight-line formation.
The primary light on one of the objects appeared to dim, revealing prominent flashing red and white lights. All three lights departed and disappeared from sight, after which one of them returned to the same location where it had been in the sky.
One witness captured the photo shown above.
There were three bright balls of light, too bright to be a plane or helicopter and brighter than the street lights. At first they weren't aranged in any particular way but slowly went into a triangle formation, then proceeded to change into a horizontal line.
One of them dimmed and was no longer bright and, instead, had flashing red and white lights, almost exactly like an airplane, but was moving too fast to be one. It flew away.
The other two shortly followed individually. There was nothing for about five to ten minutes, then one came back (the bottom one) to its exact spot where it was before and was bright again then flew away.
