Large black snakelike ufo above Seattle right now about a thousand ft above airtraffic and below cloud ceiling

I just saw a large black snake like shape floating above Capitol Hill. It appeared to move as if it were a very long and large balloon arch. It stayed mostly straight but would bend and flip occasionally. What made it seem like it couldn't be just balloons was the scale. Air traffic seemed to be about 500-700ft above the hill and the object seemed twice as far above. It stayed in a stationary position even when it twisted and bent shape.

((NUFORC Note: We believe the witness, who elects to remain totally anonymous, may have been the same party to telephoned our Center about the sighting. Given the other report we have received, we would like to speak with this witness. PD))
