|small white circles that fade in and out and remain motionless for minutes at a time
We were watching the east horizon to see the sun rise, on a beautifully clear day. I noticed a white speck over the Cascade mountain range slowly fade into vision. It was small, very far away but a definate circular shaped object that remained motionless for about 3 or 4 minutes. It did not change shape,color, or size. It faded slowly back out of vision, and as it did so, another one the same way as before faded in and remained motionless for a few minutes, then faded out. I saw another one faintly do the same thing after that. It was much smaller, but followed the same pattern.
((NUFORC Note: Anonymous report. We wonder whether the witness might have been observing contrails by commercial jet aircraft approaching from the east. PD))
