Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was very quiet, the only sound I remember was a humming sound that would pulsate. It was round with lights that constantly rotated about the bottom, the lights were orange (maybe red), green and yellow, it had a dome top and was overall dark other than the lights on the bottom and the dome. I remember it tilting at one point and seeing windows and shapes moving behind the windows, like looking into a lit house where all you can see is silhouettes.

Size of Object(s)

I have a hard time relating to size of the object, it seemed about the length of maybe 2 cars. As it hovered over the drive way it didn't seem to much larger than maybe 3 car widths across or maybe 2 car lengths.

Description of Area / Surroundings

We lived on a small farm. Our house and yard sat pretty much in the middle of 40 acres. Most everyone around us had 3 to 5 acres or more. We were 6 miles north of Portland Oregon, the nearest city.

Full Description & Details

My brother, sister and I were sleeping in the yard, as we usually did during the summer. We were not talking, just watching the sky for shooting stars. As we lay there a UFO appeared above us, I use the word appeared because I don't remember it approaching. It was very quiet, the only sound I remember was a humming sound that would pulsate. It was round with lights that constantly rotated about the bottom, the lights were orange (maybe red), green and yellow, it had a dome top and was overall dark other than the lights on the bottom and the dome. I remember it tilting at one point and seeing windows and shapes moving behind the windows, like looking into a lit house where all you can see is silhouettes. We did not move, we lay there frozen, then it moved across the yard and hovered above the cars in our driveway. Then just as quick as it came it was gone.

We ran in the house and slept the rest of the night on the living room floor. Many things are strange from this point (like they weren't before right?). None of us talked about it the next day, I don't even remember thinking about it. I also don't remember my older sister (I was the youngest) being in the yard or waking up in the living room with us, to this day I don't. One day my family was sitting around visiting and talking about UFO's the 3 of us looked at each other and said in unison, "we've seen a UFO" and then recounted the same story. I really don't know the time between the two events, it was over a year, probably more like 3 years later that we remembered. Other things have seemed weird to me too. For years I would see a circular pattern and think of my sister and even asked her if she had a shirt or dress with that same pattern on it. For some reason it also brings back the UFO memory.

I forget that my sister was even there in the yard with us, just a year or so ago she said "remember when we saw the UFO?" And again I had to remind myself she was there, I truly don't remember her with us.

None of us have had a detailed talk about this since we recounted to our family what has happened. I have shared it with some of my friends, I am sure they have too but we don't talk to each other about the details of it. My brother (the only boy) won't talk about it, wont' acknowledge that it was a UFO. He will go as far as to say he saw something or something happened but I think he leans more toward government trial craft than something not of this world.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No.

Witness Background

I grew up on a farm in a christian household and still hold those beliefs. I am the youngest of 6 children, 5 girls, 1 boy, we grew up with idealistic childhoods playing in woods, riding horses and had many pets and chores. I had a successful carer in retail before taking the plunge and opening my own coffee shop and deli 8 years ago. I am happily married and have 3 grown children (2 are step children). Life is good.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I was around 9 or 10. Other than scary movies (which I hate) and Star trek (which I love) I had really no experience before the sighting. As an adult, I just don't know. I read one book, many years ago, on abductions but it gave me bad dreams so I don't read them anymore. I feel there is some thing out there, but really have no really opinion as to what. I am neither eager to share nor opposed to talk about my experience. If it comes up, I'll gladly tell you about it. If you ask what I think it all means I tell you the truth, I don't know.
