Was driving west on NE Killingsworth ave when my wife and I both saw a glowing flash in the sky that turned a few different colors (red, orange, blue, yellow) then disappeared. No sound or any kind of explosive concussion.
It was spherical in shape and glowing, the light from it was diffused by the clouds giving it kind of an “aura”. It appeared out of nowhere and disappeared in about 5 seconds.It resembled a transformer exploding but it was too high in the sky. I should note that there were some lightning strikes in the Portland area that evening, some causing power outages, but this did not look like any lightening that I’ve ever seen.
