white disc with silver color change shaped object trailing slowly hovering above clouds at sunset on Elliot Bay

Around 9:05 on the evening of July 9th my friend and I were looking at a beautiful sunset taking place off in the distance over Puget Sound otherwise known as Elliot Bay just West of downtown Seattle.

As we were both watching my friend expressed “what is that?” We thought maybe it was a plane coming in from the distance but there was no sound, or lights and it was moving very slowly with no trail. It was bright white in color and as it got closer we noticed it slowly turned and seemed like a sphere and was changing color from white to a silverish black in one section of whatever it was and then white again. We both commented that it looked to have been spinning.

It sat above the reddish clouds for possibly 10 minutes moving slowly back and forth, hovering and then stopped with no movement for a few more minutes then went behind the clouds and reappeared for another few minutes.

Then as we were watching the object was there then just disappeared.
