Location: Olympia, WA
Shape: Disk
Duration:20 minutes
We observed a silent, saucer shaped object with a ring around it with a color and glow resembling the moon.

We saw a large saucer shaped object which appeared to have a ring around it. It's color changed somewhat from the color of the moon to a soft amber. It hovered over a distant hill in the state forest, which is unpopulated and a wilderness. We watched the object move to different positions within the same area without a sound. At one point we thought the object was coming towards us but reverted back to its' position over the hill. We watched the object for approximately 20 minutes then it appeared to land behind the hill out of our sight, leaving only a yellow to amber glow highlighting the hill.
