Hello Brian I was watching the contrails in the sky as they were odd. The one I was watching had the appearance of a large plane contrail, two thick and twisting trails leading into thinner lines and disappearing. I looked in the binoculars to see what plane left this trail. At the head of the trail there was no plane body. There was instead 5 distinct shapes and their trails were merging into two. The "body" looked like a cloud hand in a fist. As it approached the ground the "fingers" were slightly opening. I saw a small ship, silver and reflecting the sun. It was about a centimeter long (in the binos) and it was circling the area where the trail ended. It was an eliptical plate in shape and the back end had a red marker on it. I don't know for sure if the mark was chevron shaped. As the ship circled the area moving with speed I noticed it was doing rollovers and would dissapear and reapear in the sunlight. This sighting occured in the sw sky over the mountains and Okanagan Lake between Vernon and Kelowna. The ship I saw headed SE. The total time was approx. five minutes from watching the contrail descend to the ship leaving the area.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
