Boomerang shaped metalic craft over the pugit sound

At this point i cant really remember what year or day it was exactly but it was about 8 years ago

when this happened.I had just got off work and went down to pioneer squar in down town seattle.I was headed to a freinds birthday party,where he lived in the penthouse on top of some building down there.

I had gone out on the terace and opened my first beer,and it was nice and warm out because it was in the middle of the summer.It was a really nice day, and not a cloud in the sky.eventually after being out there for about 5 to 10 minutes i notices something kinda hovering out over the water.It was moving from north to south really slow,and at first i didnt give it much thought because initially i thought it was a hang glider.I was talking to someone and i kept looking over at the object, and eventually it just stoped and hovered.

So i started to ask others at the party what the hell is that.the owner of the place actually brought out some binoculars and we got a really good look at this thing.

It was actually to big to be a hang glider, and the only reason i thought thats what it was at the begining was because it was boomerang shaped.It had a very shiney metalic almost chrome look to it,and while it was hovering in the same spot it was fliping from front to back, and from side to side.While this was happening i was looking at it through the binaculars, and in the middle of the craft the metal was warping and changeing shapes.There were geometrical patterns forming and creases in the metal itself and they were changing.Imagine how the cuts on a daimond looks and while you are looking at them they are shifting and makeing new side apear.Thats what it was like.

My freinds and I then watched this craft rise slowly out of the atmosphere, or at least straight up till it disapeared, and the whole time it kept fliping and turning from one side to another while warping its own configuration.I would really say that there were about 15 to 30 people there who all saw this happen, and i got to say its one of the strangest crafts ive ever seen.I grew up near numerouse military instilations and have been on many military bases,and have even been on a veriety of militaray airplains,ships,tanks.You name it ive seen it first hand, so im used to seeing all kinds of things like that but ive never seen anything like this.

Now im not claiming that this thing was something from another world or an alien craft or even a military craft.Frankly i dont know what kind of craft it was.What i do know, was that this had some type of intelegant behaivior about it,and i also know it wasnt a baloon or something simple like that.It was pretty complex what ever it was.I found it strange that the entire city didnt seem to see this craft,because it was pretty big and it was in the middle of broad daylight.I didnt hear anything about it in the news.I am not in touch with the people who saw this with me but if i need to get a hold of them to back up my story i could.Frankly i do not care weather people believe i saw something wierd or not,But just in case someone else saw this there will at least be one report on this incadent.I figured that i should report this since it actually happened, and people can take my word for what it is.Sorry i have no picture or video of the incedent,i never even thought to get a camera out the entire time.I was just to into looking at it, because i was facinated by it.

I would like to add that i do not do drugs nor am i an alcoholic,nor do i have any mental disabilities.

This all lasted for about 45 minutes.
