Sighting Details

My wife and I were sitting on our couch in n.e Portland, recounting our day to each other. We keep our windows open on Summer evenings. I was sitting with my back to the west, facing my wife in the east, and to my right is the southern window. I have a tendency to be observant of noises and movements... Call it skiddishness or whatnot, but out of the peripheral to my right I saw a light to the south. It was 35 to 45 degrees above the horizon, and traveling east. We live near the airport, so air traffic is common. My father is a pilot, and I have been around aircraft my entire life, so, when I noticed that this light was very bright, and did not blink, I turned to my right to view it more observant ly. At that time, I saw that the object, which was football-blimp shaped, was extremely bright, like an arc light from welding, emitting greens, blues and pinks at the corona of the light. This piqued my interest, and I asked my wife to look at it. She had noticed my reaction and was already leaning in to look at what I was reacting to. For a moment, I thought it might be a firework, as we have seen/heard them EVERY WEEKEND since the fouth, but this object zig-zagged in a downward motion ain't then dropped suddenly. My wife saw it as well, and we both went to the back yard to continue looking, our previous conversation forgotten. There was a sound that accompanied the object, actually, it precluded it... Like high-frequency, glass upon glass. I heard it again after the sighting ended, but now the sound is gone. The entire sighting lasted approximately two minutes. This is the fifth sighting I have had in my lifetime, but by far the clearest. I am certain that this was not a known craft to my knowledge, nor was it a firework. The movement was smooth and intentional.
