Full Description & Details:       
I was visiting a friend of mine who resides on top of the suburban area named Sky Mountain (on Cougar Mountain) which overlooks Lake Sammamish. It was during the moment when I was about to leave when something strange caught my eye. At frist [sic - first], I wasn’t sure what I was looking at. However, upon closer observation, I noticed that it was an elliptical/disk-like object skimming along the surface of the lake. At first, I thought it was barely underneath the water, however, it suddenly maneauvored [sic – maneuvered] to its side in a swift, graceful movement. I realized that it was directly above the lake. The object continued to skim around the lake in a wide, circular path but gradually begin [sic – began] to submerge underwater until only a speak [sic – speck] of it (about half a cm) could be visible to the naked eye. At that point, I thought I was hallucinating and immediately called my friend outside, asking if she had a pair of binoculars. By then, I couldn’t locate the object anymore. My friend’s house is approximately two miles from the lake, and the object appeared to be 2.5-3.5 inches at an initial glance until it diminished underwater.
