Location: Cowiche, WA
|I was coming home late night with the wife from work. We live in the town called Cowiche its north of Yakima out in the country. It was a very clear night with the stars out. There is a cannon that leads far into the hills and towards Tampico. You can see at least 3 miles up the cannon from a distance as the slope goes up toward the mountain base. We were on a flat stretch that is called the hop stretch and at that angle you could see up the entrance of the Cowiche cannon. We saw an oscillating greenish/blue light and a reflective look as if the lights where reflecting off of something shiny with a hit of reddish underneath it.
The object was about a mile up the road from us moving toward the mouth of the cannon hovering just above the trees.
As we got closer the object looked disk or roundish in shape and was moving very slowly into the cannon and then ascended up to just about the ridge sides of the cannon and continued very slowly as to be traversing the cannon and we stopped and watched it for about 12-20 minutes as it slowly continued up the cannon with its lights oscillating and disappeared from sight.
Wow we thought this was weird and very cool.
