Location: Vancouver, WA
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:5 minutes
Completely motionless and silent metallic cylinder at about 200-300 feet ... mid-morning , clear skies , calm wind .

My friend and I were flying our RC airplanes, mid-morning, calm wind, clear skies. We were both flying relaxing slow flying planes while sitting in lawn chairs. We noticed an object directly overhead at an estimated altitude of about 200-300 feet. It was cylindrical, roughly the proportions of a soda pop can, the surface appeared to be solid and metallic
(shimmering in the sunlight), and had no visible protrusions or markings. It was COMPLETELY motionless: no spin, no rotation, no drift .... and it made no sound. It remained completely motionless for about 5 minutes, then my friend and I had to land our planes when the batteries in the planes ran out.

After landing our planes , we looked back up to see the object .... and it was completely gone . We scanned the sky to see if it had drifted off ( as a balloon would ) , but did not see it anywhere .
