Daylight sighting of shape-shifting UFO

On January 31, at 12:00pm, while my husband and I were driving North on Meridian in Puyallup, Washington, we noticed a small traffic helicopter traveling southbound above us at about 1000'. What appeared to be another helicopter followed about a quarter of a mile behind it.

While we were stopped in heavy traffic, the 2nd "copter" swayed erratically from side to side above the busy highway. It stopped suddenly in mid-air, then turned sharply toward the east, all the while rapidly changing altitude. It continued to sway from side to side and to bounce up and down.

We could see it was not a helicopter, but was an extremely large cube or boxy silver object. It morphed into an elongated box, then became a sphere and then a whole array of boxy shapes, as it hovered, and raised and lowered its altitude. We saw no lights on it. There were no vapors coming from it. When it changed shape it would momentarily shine like a piece of reflective aluminum.

Finally it just shot off to the northeast at a high rate of speed. I was driving and had to focus on traffic, but my husband in the passenger seat watched the object until it disappeared completely. The entire episode lasted approximately 5-10 minutes.

It was high noon, the sky was a light grey, there was no rain, and no wind. Visibility was about five miles.
