Location: Ellensburg, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
Sighted one small bright light moving right and left quickly while ascending.

There were 7 of us out hunting coyotes a good distance outside of Ellensburg. Up near the Manastash Canyon. On our way out of the canyon we stopped one last time to listen for coyotes when we noticed a bright light come up over the ridge. It was fairly small and moved slowly. We thought nothing of it until it started bouncing from left to right quickly. It would move right fast then pause then move left. As it moved side to side it was slowly rising up. After about 5 minutes (a guess) it just stopped, slowly sunk below the ridge again. We then proceeded to get out of the canyon as fast as possible! We will be going back on 11/16/01 to try and photograph the UFO if possible.
