Location: Castle Peak Summit (9300'), CA
Shape: Disk
Duration:10 minutes
Observed a large greyish disk with a bright orange ring on the bottom.

I had just finished hiking to the top of Castle peak with a friend and we were looking around the area with binoculars. I looked up and saw a pewter grey disk directly overhead. The disk was hovering at a really high altitude. Underneath the disk was an orange ring of "energy". We observed this craft for over 10 minutes and it never went away. My friend thought it was a weather balloon but admitted that he was unsure what it was. There were two other couples at the summit but we are not sure if they saw it too. There was no sound and it left no trails.
