Full Description of event/sighting: One two evenings, 9/3 and 9/5, approx 10:00 p.m.., my partner was outside and called to me to come out and take a look in the sky. I went out, and we used inexpensive binoculars (10 X 50 WA) ... saw clearly a brilliant-strobing-lights object hovering in the sky. Clear night, many stars. It was far away, but quite visible. I framed it in my sight line with the telephone wires and a tree, and it hovered within that space for around half an hour. We are in Linton, and observed it to the north, looking across the Willamette River, but could not ascertain how far away it was. I saw it hover and shift position, tilting from horizontal to a vertical position, then rotating slowly enough to see the underside, then flatten out to horizontal again. We saw four colors of lights-- red, white, green and blue-- distinctly, but not all at the same time. They flashed and rotated around the edge-- or appeared to through the binoculars. I wondered at the time if this was one of "ours", some advanced technology being tested out here. In fact, I recall airliners in the sky taking off from the Portland Airport, and they must have seen this object, also. I thought-- surely they (the airport personnel) would have knowledge of this sort of advanced technology craft (maybe a military test craft, and the military contacted them?) if planes are just flying to and fro out there while this thing hovers...???

As I stated, we saw this object two nights, in approximately the same position in the sky. On the second sighting, our two friends joined us outside to see it as well.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
