it was about double the size of a comercial aircraft it had lights lighting in sequence from side to side i watched it go downward until it went behind some the trees

my father and i were driving home from a movie when i spotted a millitary cargo plane we see alot of them where we live it is very normal then i looked a ways behind the plane and at about the same altitude was a flat circular pnacake configuration craft flying at a high speed determined by the altitude and time it took for it to travel to one point to another it was also the same altitude as the cargo plane and it was going much much faster than the plane it could not have been a fighter jet because it was circular and had no afterburners glowing and no sound but i did hear the cargo plane in the distance and it was very far away from the object i watched the object fly at a diagonal angle down and down behind some trees far away from us probably in the forest i dont know if it landed but my father watched this whole thing happen to i have ruled out the fact that it might be a helocopter also because it was just to high in the air and was going to fast and it made no noise i dont know if there was any more people that saw this event but i would be suprised if there werent my father is a leutenant colnel in the u.s. army he works at madigan army hospital in f.t. lewis washington he is the inspector general there please tell me if you get anymore reports of any ufo activity in the washington state area and i mean every sighting in this area please i know you probably get alot of wackos just pulling your chain thinking its funny to put in a false report and this kind of sighting probably happens all of the time but i can assure you that what i saw was real thank you for your time.
