RFigure 8 cloud over Gresham

Smoke Rings over GRESHAM

Outside working with a co-worker at 8:12AM this morning when we noticed the figure 8 cloud in the sky. It was flexing and slowy dissapating. Gloria grabbed her phone cam and took these pic's. Question is, did anybody else see it and the most important question " what was it".

Did you hear a clicking sound similar to a receipt printer? If so, I'm betting it was the smoke monster from Lost.

I have a pic on my cell too. It was round as I approached it and it dissipated as I drove under. It just zipped into nothingness from the lower left edge up to the upper right in seconds. At first, it did look like birds but there was nothing.

This is a flock of birds. Saw lots of different flocks in formation yesterday heading back to Eugene from Portland area.

I got some pictures of that this morning too. I was on Sand Blvd. just West of Fairview Parkway when I saw it at about 7:40. It was a lot lower than your picture and rising. I'm trying to figure out how to post my shots linked to yours...

Military were doing many evolutions on Monday and their flight path is right in that area for both take off and aproach to PDX.

I saw this this morning, around 10AM over NW Portland, near downtown. I looked at it with binoculars. Definitely not a flock of birds, or anything alive. Thought it might be a kite of some sort, but it was so high up, I'm not sure it could be.
