Summary : Circular, bright metallic object hovering, seemingly dissapearing and reapearing in the same place high in the sky in South King County, WA.

I was travelling to work at 8:30am on Southbound I-5 on Tuesday, December 9th, 1997. I first noticed this small, circular, metallic object (highly reflective) high in the sky approximately 11:00 position, 45 degrees from my vantage point. It appeared to be probably over the city of Auburn. I had just gotten on I-5 from the 405, Southcenter interchange, so I saw the object for about 5 minutes off and on. It appeared to dissapear and then reappear in the same spot at least three times. If this was a trick of my eye I cannot say. The sun would hit it at times and the whole thing would appear to light up brighter than you would expect from a conventional plane. (I am sending a .jpg image I created as an example..File 12997.jpg) By the time I neared Fife, I lost sight of it. I am a computer graphic designer with an interest in UFOs, but have never seen anything like this in the skies before.
