Duration: 30 seconds
Bright shimmering object, not too high above ground level. Looking and moving like flying saucer right out of science fiction.

Mid afternoon, sunny day. Smallish craft, maybe the size of a mid-to full sized RV? Bright reflective silvery shimmering surface, wedge shaped. About 200 feet from shore, maybe only 500-1000 feet above the Columbia River. It suddenly arrived, hovered briefly, then flew off extremely quickly. Looked as if there was another one high up in the sky, hovering for a while above. I have operated small drones. This did not look like, nor move like any drone I have ever seen. No apparent sound, silent running.
