|took awhile for me to grab my camera as I was thinking “No Way”.
fairly slow lumbering flight path east to west then finally west to east and I look away for just a bit then it was not in sight. (went above clouds I presume) at one point when I noted the Very distant V shape (as in that typed letter) it did a slow rotation or 2 while hovering in one spot. Color: good question I saw it as black and or possibly orange/white – perhaps due to sun reflections on it?? Other witness when she finally came out side said black.
it did a 2nd hovering after I believe it was when it went from west to east.
when I first saw it I thought it was an airplane in the distance. then possibly drone, or hang glider or something.. that broke free and was floating around. but it went against the cloud direction when it went east to west. and it was too far away and too high up to start with from initial sighting to farthest west sighting to be a Civilian RC or drone. its Sharp V shape would not be of Any benefit to the slow speed and hovering it did.
there may be little more I can say or not I did not grab my camera when it was in the position of best view.. then I put the first battery in it and it did not work.. (rechargeable and stored charged even) Ignore the pictures timestamp I don’t keep batteries in my camera and seldom use it.
time taken I can calculate it if needed but just hoping others reported the same thing. or an explanation - Please fill me in.
the picture does not look at all like what I saw. I saw no lights or anything. when it hovered and rotated. I simply saw a “V” just about like that one.

if needed please use my email to contact me especially if there is an explanation or others that reported it.
this is not a crack letter though I do expect there must be an explanation as I would liked to have seen something of this nature. ( to Know ) and I am outside often looking up.
Oh yea, Vancouver Washington USA aprox 1-2 pm 6-27-2015 ( sober ) thanks
