|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.
