|Yellow, round object with no other lights seen in Purdy, Wa.
Travelling home on Highway 16 I noticed what I thought was a helicopter coming towards me at about 1,000 a.g.l. On second look the yellow color of the craft was unlike anything I've seen.
I looked out the window of the truck to get a look at it from behind and still only saw a yellow color plus a little darker color in the center. There were no position lights, anti-collision lights or any other light. The speed of the craft was similar to a helicopter. Heading was south to south west.
Visibility was great this evening and sun had set.
The yellow color was constant from when I first saw it to seeing it pass.
The yellow color was similar to the color of a fire.
I'm a pilot with about 360 hours. Flightpath was the same altitude and heading.
