Crown shaped craft over I 405 in Bellevue, WA, early morning September 16, 2018.

I was driving southbound on I 405 through Bellevue, Washington, in September, when out of nowhere came this craft. Flying in a southerly vector parallel to my direction of travel. My radio was on and traveling at highway speed there was no way to tell if the craft made any noise. The craft appeared to look like a crown flying backwards, grey/black in color with many large white lights around the perimeter.

I do have video which I will also attempt to send. I have never seen any footage of a craft remotely resembling what I saw on this morning.

I work in aerospace and I understand the local flight paths for our local airstrips. This craft was not on a typical trajectory for any of them.

((NUFORC Note: Reflection off of windshield?? NUFORC and source of report agree that the object appears to be on the near side of the traffic signs, strongly suggesting that the object in the video provided is a reflection or lens flare. PD))
