Location: Maryhill, WA
Shape: Disk
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
My brothers and I saw a large spinning disk with lights hovering while we were camping.

My brothers and I were camping in the Maryhill RV park one night and we were settling down in our tent when my brother got us all up to look out the roof of the tent where we could see three very bright lights equidistant from each other. We got out of the tent to observe the lights more closely. It first appeared to be some sort of formation of ships. In between the lights that would flash occasionally there was a shimmer like glitter. The lights hovered above the highway right next to us on the side of a mountain. After watching it for awhile we could see that the lights were actually spinning and it was not a formation but a disk shaped object. The ship was very large in relation to the objects surrounding it like the mountain side or the semis driving below it. It slowly headed east in the direction where I believe the Goldendale Observatory is, in Goldendale, WA. I would recommend contacting the Goldendale Observatory to see if they witnessed anything similar to us. It was a very clear night and the stars were clearly visible. We were facing North where the ship was hovering.
