Duration:A couple of minutes
Huge, perfectly square, bright white object leaves with out the sound of a take off or splash.

My father, brother, step mother, and myself were on a camping trip. We had taken a boat to the far side of the island that the city of Ketchikan is on. It is very remote out there except for a few forest service cabins, most of which are unocupied.

In the evening around 5:30PM my father, step mother and I went to go collect the crab pots we had set earlier in the day.

One of the crab pots was in a small bay, the beach went up from the water for about 30 yards and then turned into dense forest. We did not notice anything when we first entered the bay and stopped at the crab pot.

After we started pulling up the crab pot me and my father both looked up at the same time, I am not sure why we did as we did not hear anything unusual and we were occupied with the crab pot at that time. What we saw when we looked up was very odd but did not scare us. We saw a large rectangular shaped thing sitting about 10 yards up on the beach. It was about 20ft high 20ft wide and 30 ft long. It had perfectly square corners. It was also more brightly white then anything I have ever seen. And as this was South East Alaska during the summer there was no chance it was snow, not that we ever get that much snow even in winter and never that close to the water.

Im not sure why but we both went back to pulling up the crab pot. It took us about 45 seconds to finish pulling it up. When we looked back to the beach the object had gone, but we had not heard a take off or splach, and the object was much to large to have made its way in to the dense forest.

My step mother claims to not have seen anything, but she also addmitted that she had not looked at the beach in the first place.
