Dancing lights over Olympia

It was October 1979 and I was walking to a party through the town of Olympia, WA at around 8:45 pm with a friend. We noticed a saucer shaped craft over a tree and commented on it and watched it. It is imposdsbile to say how large the craft was since the distance was unclear but it appeard to be maybe 50 feet across 25 feet high. IT was hovering and very still. I heard no sound. It had three lights in a triangle formation. The lights would switched places and I could actually see them move as if to occupy the place where the other light had been. We both stared at the object without saynig anything. After what seemed to be a minute or so it shot up at about a 2:00 position very quickly and went out of sight. I thiknk we said, what was that? and we both didn't know. We had expected to get to the party at right about 9 pm to help set it up. When we got there the party was in full swing and it was 11 pm. We were very surpried and I said to my friend, "do you know it's 11" or something to that effect and he confused by this as well. Niether of us spoke about it but it (now) seems clear we "lost time." I have not memory of anything further.
