2 witness UFO sighting on highway 12, just west of Morton, WA... felt observed... light which emitted fog or smoke...

I was driving eastbound on highway 12 near Morton, WA at 3:50 am with my boyfriend on a trip to Idaho. I saw a bright object appear out the corner of my eye, and it was not the moon, but it was about one half that size. It looked like a cloud of smoke with white light shining from within it. The lights and "smoke" moved around, constantly shifting its shape. The object held its position high in the eastern sky for approximately 1-2 seconds. It quickly moved to the south a short distance, stopped and changed course several times before flying west at a incredible speed.

I am a 20-year-old server at a restaraunt and he is a college educated 31-year-old construction worker.

In my opinion, the object was watching us. When the object noticed we were watching it,it spastically moved and flew away into the night sky.

This object/light was not a reflection of light on the cloud, like a beacon. It was coming from within or behind the cloud.

The incident lasted approximately 3-4 seconds.

We did not talk about this until we returned from our trip three days later.
