Metallic Orange Ring Shaped Object Over Hillsboro Oregon

I was working in the backyard and looked up and noticed an object in the Western sky above the roof of my garage. It was shaped like a ring or a doughnut, with a large hole in the middle. It was a metallic orange color that reflected light as it moved in the sky. It was completely silent and slowly moved horizontally against the wind from North to Southwest across the field of view. It did not change elevation as it was flying and made very strange movements. For most of the time I saw it, it was flat, but then suddenly it would flip up so you could really see the ‘O’ shape of it and I could see right through it. As it headed further Southwest out of my view, I ran and got my husband so we could both go out in the front yard and watch it from there. He also saw it and we stood there watching it for another minute or so. It got smaller as it went further West and just disappeared.

Here is the link to the video I posted on YouTube of part of what I saw. https://youtu.be/oaAf3teZrvg
