Summary : obseved a very reflective ufo over a mountian pass it moved across my field of vision was able to record with video camera. good footage.

i was looking for the mir space station and space shuttle disengaging. I thought that i was observing this as a bright light low on the southwestern horizion, and made a comment about it to the driver of the vehicle i was in. I reached in to the back seat to retrive my 8mm video camera when i turnd around the sight was gone, this seemd strange since star light fades out, any way i kept looking in the same area when i saw movement next to the mountain on my left. I could see somthing in the air above the side of the mountain only because the trees were reflected off the bottom of the craft. as i begain to video tape and try to get it in focus which was difficult because the camera was new to me and i had it on auto focus, and had to take it off auto focus.while all this was going on it flew over us at what i estamete was a 1000ft then it stopped above and to the right rear of my field of vision and it flew back into the light of the morning sun and was once again lighted brightly, and i was able to focus and begin recording.you can see the saucer shape and see it travel very quickly away and over a hill.
