We live in vancouver washington, on the other side of the river from portland, oregon. while looking in the night sky toward the southwest from our home, we saw an extraordinarily bright light which we thought might be the comet everyone is talking about. we brought out binoculars and saw the most peculiar rotating orb which appeared like a beautiful 3d version of the flower of life. colors were pulsating from the inside, almost as if it was breathing with the most beautiful blue, white and red colors. we were mesmerized because it almost looked like a multicolor version of the moon. behind the orb was a gigantic black triangular craft with muted white lights on each corner. it was hard to see at first because it was so gigantic. there were several smaller lights spinning in and out of the larger craft for about 40 minutes that were moving in erratic movements at high speed. this activity went on for about a half hour and then the whole mass was stationery for a couple hours before moving away. we couldn't film it because we could only see the mass through the binoculars and we don't have a telescope.
