Posted: 3/31/2008
Location: Vancouver (Canada), BC
Shape: Disk
Duration:2-5 mins
i was leaving work and was sitting in the front passenger seat of my co workers vehicle when i noticed on the horizon a disk moving above the airport (approx 1.5 kilometres west from my location. The sun would have also been in the sky although it was a dull morning). It was a cloudy morning and i would guess the cloud bank to be at 1500-2000 feet. The object was copper coloured and had what appeared to be lines on the underside(?) which formed a thick cross-similar to the nazi iron cross design-there was also a set of lines which went around the outer edge of this thing. This disc also travelled on its rim and climbed into the sky like a wheel. It was not hovering but moving steadily on its rim. I believe i was looking at the underside of the craft and do not know if there was mass or bulk (cabin or infrastructure) on the side i could not see. It was the size of a penny-a canadian or american one cent. i watched it until my head was almost on the dash board trying to see where it was going. Eventually it moved into the cloud bank and out of view.

this is a diagram to the best of my memory. The disc was the size of a small coin and the same colour as a one cent piece.
