Sighting near Vancouver, Washington/Portland Oregon in August of 1999

We were driving across the I-5 bridge from Vancouver, WA to Portland, OR when I noticed an object in the sky that didn't move at all. The sun was coming down and it didn't appear to have any lights on but was reflecting sunlight. It was completely still in the sky. I showed my husband, who was also very confused by the object. It was like nothing we've ever seen before. I watched the object for several minutes before I saw it move very abruptly and FAST across the sky. I located the object again and then saw a military plane come up and investigate the object and then the object disappeared very quickly. This was very close to Pearson Airfield.

The object was very high in the sky so it's very hard to approximate the size.

Years later we were watching a show about UFO's and saw a video of a UFO in Gulf Breeze, Florida that looked exactly like the object we saw. Here is a picture I found online.
