Moving and shifting star-like object seen over Vancouver WA in conjunction with strange cloud formations.

Around 11:45 PM on June 5th, 2006 I was sitting in my truck in the K-Mart parking lot in Vancouver WA waiting for my mom to buy something. I then noticed two thin but very distinct tornado-like "tendrils" extending from the cumulus clouds in the north. (skies were partly cloudy with puffy white clouds but sunny). These formations were not dark though like regular tornadoes but as white as the clouds themselves were.

So, as I watched with facination these "cloud ropes" form and twist and then dissipate all in a matter of about 3 or 4 minutes, I said in my mind, "If you are really out there somewhere (meaning the aliens or just "the Other") then please let me see some evidence of your existence. I will help you in any way I can if I only knew you existed." I was really sincere in this "telepathic SOS" and continued watching the area where the cloud tendrils formed.

To my utter surprise, no less than I'd say 20 or 30 seconds after I thought this, a bright starlike object came from over those clouds. At first I figured it must be a jet or something, yet it was very bright yellowish and heading in a south easterly direction towards me. But the light of it did not dim as it traveled and over the entire time I saw it it never flickered or flashed like it was reflecting the sunlight. It was just like a very bright star only during the daytime!     

So after about 4 minutes it reached a position to the right of overhead me in the blue sky (about 2 o'clock) and then slowed down and stopped! That instantly ruled out jet or airplane or satellite for me! Then it started traveling to the west towards the 12 o'clock position directly above me. As it did so I watched huge patches of white mist underneath the cumulus clouds start moving rapidly together to the area of the sky underneath this object. Then the object went behind a big cloud directly overhead of me and I watched as parts of even this big cloud swirled in distinctly circular patterns at the edge.

After a few more moments of watching I couldn't find it anymore and my mom then arrived and we left.
