V/Triangular Object over Tacoma Washington

On 9/18 of 2005 my wife,mother in law and myself witnessed an object in the sky over Tacoma Washington, it was a v or triangular shape and appeard to be at an altitude well over 4000 feet. For roughly 10 minutes it did not change position then it moved at a medium pace (under 400mph) what appeared to be several miles to the east never changing altitude. The visual size of the object indicated it was much to high to be a helicopter and since it was hovering for several minutes it was not a plane, my mother in law thought it was a kite, but the distance it covered was much further than would have been possible with a kite even at high altitude. It did not change elevation at any time that it was witnessed only physical position in a course from west to east.
