Location: Auburn, WA
Shape: Circle
Duration:3-5 minutes
bright, circular in shape object, moving from a 3 o'clock position in the sky to the 12 o'clock position before dissapearing

I was looking up into the sky noticing how clear it was. I was looking out towards the west, which would be toward the Seattle airport from where I live. Because of this I am often aware of aircraft in the distance. Normally I watch very carefully for any sign that would let me know that it is an airplane, flashing lights, in line for landing, etc. I noticed that either the planet Venus or Jupiter was noticeable and very bright. Looking down and to the left of the bright planet, there was another very bright light, which I initially took as a star. Confused by this because it was so bright and I was unfamiliar with any other planet being that close to another one at this time, I looked at it for a few minutes. In that time of watching it, it began to move slowly up from a three o’clock position up to what I would call the 12 o’clock position. It moved very slow and precise across the sky. I continued watching it because I was thinking that it had to! be an airplane. Because it never flashed any red lights or changed from its original bright state, I started thinking it had to be a UFO. As it stayed at the 12 o’clock position above my head for a few second it was if someone turned off a light switch and I know longer saw any light from it again.
