Shape: Circle
Duration:5 minutes
When I was about 12 years old a couple of men took some of the neighborhood kids camping while they cut some trees that they would come back and get later for winter fire wood.

I don't know the exact date or year. I'm 50 now so it was good long while ago but I do remember exactly what I saw.

Any way we where out camping some where around Sultan or Gold Bar Washington East of Monroe some where off of Hwy 2. We were sleeping out under the stars. I had gotten up some time during the night and went back and layed down in my sleeping bag looking at the sky through the trees.

From a northern direction I saw a silver disk of bright light. It was a little smaller than the full moon but was the same kind of silvery light as the moon and was very high in altitude. It was hard to gauge its speed or altitude but moved in a pretty much north to south direction at steady pace.

As I followed it with my eyes it instantly changed direction to a due east direction. It didn't stop, slow down or curve as it changed direstion. It was going south then it changed directions at perfenct 90 degree angle.

I know I wasn't asleep and I'm sure of what I saw. It wasn't a plane, helicopter, satilite or any thing else.
