Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The shape was oval in general, but it looked like a black balloon that had a heavy cable wrapped around and around it. And it had a tiny dot of a satelite whipping around it violently. It looked like it was in a storm wind, but it was a calm day. And it didn't seem that far up in the air.
Size of Object(s)
If I held out my pinky at arms length, I could cover it up with 1/2 of my pinky nail. I would guess its size at 30 feet in diameter. Roundish, blobby in appearance.
Description of Area / Surroundings
we saw it in a neighborhood with houses. We were somewhat close to an old extinct volcano (mt Tabor). Downtown portland oregon was a 2 minute drive away, as well as the willamette river.
Full Description & Details
My friend was sitting in his room and looking up at the sky and napping, when he saw this object hovering midair.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Could have been a weather balloon, but it was behaving so strangley on a calm, sunny day. and it had that satelite buzzing around it.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I believe ufo's are too complex for us to understand. Its just so outside our comprehension to think logically about. I have a moderate, passing interest in UFOs.
We were both convinced that this was NOT a weather balloon
