Hovering, circular UFO over Lake Washington, Renton WA, Early January 2005

I am reporting this sighting on behalf of my wife and a friend who both apparently saw the same craft at the same time without knowing it at the time. Neither are sure of the exact date but it appears to be sometime during the first week of January 2005.

Both were travelling on I-405 North (in separate cars) at approximately 6am in the morning. Around the 30th Street Exit (Kennydale) they saw a craft of some sort that seemed to be hovering over Lake Washington. My wife said that it seemed circular, and the lights were like nothing she had ever seen on an airplane. She had the very real feeling that she could possibly be seeing a UFO.

It was still dark so no details of the craft could be determined other than the "odd lights". Just tonight (1/27) my friend called and he wanted to tell me about something he saw in the sky. It turned out it was the same approximate time and place as my wife's sighting. Neither of them had known the other had seen something, let alone at the same time.

My friend said that it was definitely circular and hovering. The lights were around the whole craft and "Revolving". He knows what airplanes and helicopters look like, and this he said, was nothing like those. The revolving lights in a circular pattern was what really got - and kept - his attention. He said he kept his eye on it to the point that he almost hit the car in front of him. Approximate time of sighting lasted 2-3 minutes until he could no longer see it in his rear-view mirror.

I'm interested to know if there are any other witnesses who saw this craft, or similar craft in this location and time-frame.
