Portland in the News: Starlink Lights Up Night Skies; Downtown Recovery; Special Nets for Thorns & More! | August 25, 2022
Downtown Portland is seeing signs of recovery, but it’s not fueled by office workers.
If you saw a strange string of lights in the night skies over Portland this weekend, it wasn’t UAP or a UFO — it was a recently launched bank of Starlink satellites.
And the nets used at Portland Thorns games have been used to catch fish in the ocean.
Here’s a roundup of the goings-on in Portland this week:
- Willamette Week: Adult Soapbox Derby Draws 7,000 to Mount Tabor, Plus Pee-wee Herman and a Giant Killer Rabbit
- High Country News: Returning sea otters to Oregon could revive kelp forests
