Duration: 10-12 min.
We watched a round , silver or white object hoovering between Yakima and Ellensburg Wa. It was hard to see with the naked eye so I got out my binoculars which helped , but it was still rather small . We watched it stay in one spot for about five minutes and then it moved 20 degrees to the NW and hoovered there for 2-3 more minutes when it was joined by #2 craft.

We watched it stay in one spot for about five minutes and then it moved 20 degrees to the NW and hoovered there for 2-3 more minutes when it was joined by #2 craft.It stationed itself 20 degrees to the east . When observed with the binocs we precieved movement or rotation . At that time I was focused on #2 for thirty seconds with the binocs when it started to move to the south and I lost it when it got over the roofline of my house . At that time my neighbor was wathing #1 which moved while he was tring to look for #2. We beleive this all took place over a 10 to 15 minute period when my neighbor first sighted and then notified me. They seemed to be at a very high altitude as we noted commuter air traffic but teree was no way to judge this. Please note that the next day I got a glimpse of a simular object for 2 seconds or less , it was at a lower altitude.
