Location: Arlington, WA
|This object was viewed from west looking east.
While in the drive-thru line at the Smokey Point KFC, my doughter and I watched a large circular in shaped object blocking the view of the tip of Pilchuck Mountain. The object was reflecting the sun light, so it appeared silver in color. It stayed motionless for approx. 10-13 minutes. Then it proceeded to move northerly around the mountain top to the eastside of the mountain. This took approx. 2 minutes. I then loss sight of the object.
I pointed it out to the girl working the drive-thru window and she also observed the object.
((FOLLOW-UP COMMUNICATION FROM WITNESS))
We talked with some friends about this and they informed us that sometimes when conditions are right that the Forest Service Look-Out Tower on top of Pilchuck will reflect the evening sun as to appear as a large round light on top of the mountain.
