CIGAR/SAUCER SHAPED OBJECT IN STEAMBOAT ISLAND / SUMMIT LAKE AREA

AT ABOUT 4:15 PM ON MARCH 22, 2002 I WAS DRIVING SOUTHERLY ON STEAMBOAT ISLAND ROAD IN THE OLYMPIA AREA. ABOVE THE TREES, I WOULD GUESS ABOUT 7-10 MILES AWAY, TO THE NORTHWEST I VIEWED A VERY LARGE SAUCER OR CIGAR SHAPED SHINY SILVER OBJECT, THAT AT FIRST GLANCE I THOUGHT WAS AN AIRPLANE, BUT AT SECOND GLANCE I SAW NO SIGNS OF WINGS OR ANYTHING ELSE. IT DID NOT APPEAR TO BE MOVING. I TRIED TO GET TO A CLEARING OR HIGHER ELEVATION SO I COULD PHOTOGRAPH IT WITH MY DIGITAL CAMERA. BY THE TIME I DID, IT WAS GONE. THE APPROXIMATE AREA IT APPEARED TO BE IN IS HEAVILY TREED WITH VERY FEW SCATTERED HOMES. DID ANYONE ELSE SEE ANYTHING AROUND THERE LATELY? PRETTY STRANGE, WISH I COULD HAVE GOTTEN A BETTER LOOK, OR A PICTURE.
