Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 min
Brilliant perfect silver sphere in broad daylight.

Driving from Kennewick, Washington, to Pendleton, Oregon, on a clear afternoon, Myself and my then girlfriend saw a brilliant perfect silver sphere hovering over a field in Southeastern Washington State. Other drivers also witnessed the event and were slowing down to get better views.

The object was approximately 1 mile to the west of the highway and holding steady over a field at an altitude of about 500 feet.

The object was huge (dia=800ft.approx)and no seams were visible. My girlfriend would not stop the car because she was scared and wanted to put as many miles between us and it as possible. This is not the first UFO I have seen in the pacific northwest. But, the first in several years.
