Submitted to the Whales In Space Contact Form, two sightings of Black Balloon Cluster UFOs describing a cluster of black spheres that appear to be connected hoovering in the sky over Portland Oregon in 2006. The second sighting has an interesting twist, as a ‘circular/triangular chassis which was light greyish color’ could be seen in the center of the object, seemly holding the spheres together.
This object matches a report from Olympia WA from February 2009, another from a retired USAF Intel serviceman from 1996, and more sightings from May of 2009.
I have never seen UFO’S before. But back in October 2006 I looked out my
bedroom window at about 3 pm, and saw what looked like a cluster of black
spheres about 2,000 to 5,000 feet high, just hovering over a field near my
house (community gardens). The spheres were connected together into one
unit, It seemed small, like 5 to 10 feet diameter at most. The object did
not move the entire time I watched it. I observed it for about 3 hours,
until sunset when I could not see it anymore.
Strangely enough, later on in December 2006, I saw the same object in
almost the same location — just stationary, no movements. It seemed a
little bit lower, maybe 2,000 feet. I was at the intersection of Southeast
57th ave, and Southeast Ogden street, near the Brentwood Community Gardens
in southeast Portland. I went outside and I looked up when I was directly
under the object and it seemed to be a circular/triangular chassis which
was light greyish color which held the spheres together.
I had no explanation for what I saw. I don’t know if it was some sort of
observation drone or a “craft” or what. I really would be interested in
clarification, and this is the first time I have told my story. But I can
venture to speculate that a lot of other people must have seen this thing.
Near the intersection at SE 57th and Ogden St., next to the community gardens, there is a 115 foot tall white steel monopole cellular tower, operated by AT&T. The object I saw, in both seperate instances, was directly over that intersection — and roughly 2,000 feet or more up. I don’t know if this had any significance or not, but it struck me as odd.
