Shape: Disk
Duration:30 minutes
Large shiny white disk hovering West and East in afternoon sky.

On Saturday afternoon at 14:30 hours while doing work in my fenced backyard in Anchorage I looked up and saw a shiny white disk shaped object above a jet contrail. The contrail was at an altitude of 30 to 40 thousand feet.

At first I thought it was a small plane, but after I continued to work and then looked up again and it was still in the same area, I knew it was not moving like a small plan would be.

After watching it awhile longer I called my husband to come see the strange object in the sky. He brough 9x power binoculars to veiw the object. It was large and pure shiny white in a disk shape. We observed the shiny disk hover in place then move West then East then back West again.

At this point the jet contail was gone and the disk object was the only thing in a clear blue sky.

I had watched it for almost 30 minutes before it just suddenly disappeared.
