Object sighted by New Zealand Tourist in Tacoma 7 years ago.

I was visiting from New Zealand at the time and staying with some relations. It was appoximatly 7:00 pm, I was standing out by a farm building when all of a sudden a glowing object saucer shaped object with a triangular protrusion from either side caught my eye. It was about 25 degrees above the horizon to the west. The object stayed stationary. At the time I did not think terribly much of it because I had only just arrived in Tacoma from Auckland so I was rather tired. I was not until a day or to later that I had a think about what I had seen. I refrained from telling anyone about my experience for several years. I do except the fact that it could of been one of many human or natural phenomonon. McChord AFB is also in the area, I do not beleive it was an aircraft from there because McChord only operates C-141 and C-17 transport aircraft. I am an aviation specialist myself and I am sure the apirition I witnessed was neither any of these aircraft.
