two witness large brilliant ring of lights over Snohomish Washington

First noticed bright object in sky. It was the only object visible, remainder of sky was a consistent morning grey. I observed it move very slowly. It was extremely large. I went and awakened wife. Together we watched it move for several minutes, when it became obvious it was not a plane, far too large, or a planet, movement lateral and then vertical to line of vision we went and got binoculars. What a shock. It was a huge circular shape with lights evenly spaced aroung entire circle and appeared sky grey inside circle. At one point on top of circle was a brilliant light ( what we were observing with naked eye) that almost gave the appearance of a diamond ring with the light being the diamond. We took turns observing this for over half an hour. Occasionally the huge light seemed to change position sweeping over the surface of the circle. We also got a compass and lined it up with the object it was just a hair east of the northeast marker at about 60 degrees. Toward the end of the sighting it appeared to either break into two like objects or be joined by another larger but lilke object approachin from behind the first. It vanished quickly moving away from our vision. Most amazing was its size---it had to be incredibly large!!!!!!!!!!!! There may hve been some magnetic disturbance, we had a very difficult time stabalizing our compass.
