Duration:35 minutes
It was a bright circular object with mullti-colored llights in the center in the western sky over the Straits of Juan de Fuca

We saw a bright llight in the west and thought it was a large plane with its landing lights on. After 10 minutes or more it did not move. It was not a planet or star, as it was too bright for being almost above where the sun had set earlier (it was directly west over the Jaun de Fuca Straits). We have a home with a view and own a spotting scope. When we looked at the bright llight with the scope we could see multi-clolored lights apparently within the white light: red, organge green, blinking in no particular pattern. After 30-45 minutes my wife and I went to bed, as the object was getting smaller, as it it were going west, or just diminishing in size. I am a retired clergyman, and my wife is a registerred nurse. Neither of us have ever seen anything llike this before and we would not be described as "believers" in UFOs.
