Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Disk
Duration:30 seconds
UFO briefly hovers over Seattle, then disappears in a straight upward movement.

I woke up abruptly this am, looked out the window at a disc shaped hovering over near downtown Seattle. It had very bright lights flashing in a random pattern all around it. It was stationery at first, then rather swiftly went straight up into cloud cover. The cloud was 'lit up' for awhile, then returned to the grey morning clouds we get.

I'm a retired insurance company person, lead a quiet life. It was very real, I'm still shaking 2 hours later.
