April 06, 2007 at 19:45 hours, metallic looking and brightly lit , motionless for 15 minutes duration.

On Friday April 06, 2007 at 19:45 hours, I sighted a small, brightly lit object in the early evening sky. The object appeared as a small, star like object near motionless in the western sky. The object appears to be at approximately 60,000ft. Elevation, bearing 275 degrees from Shelton, Washington, in Mason County. I estimate it to be approximately 20 miles distant from my location.

It did not appear to be a star but was metallic looking and brightly lit from beneath by the setting sun. The object remained fairly stationary for well over 15 minutes. It was the stationary nature of the object that caught our attention. I used a pair of binoculars to look at the object and found it to be too distant to discern any additional detail.
