Description: Last evening August 14, 2018 around 9:18 PM at dusk I was driving from Lake Stevens, Washington. I was driving North on Highway 9 and coming up on the round about at 172nd St. NE in Arlington, WA when I first noticed a large object that had a row of metallic type bright orange lighting which at first I thought it had to be the Moon, but I looked a little closer and realized it was moving across the lightly darkening sky very slowly and much lower than I thought. Then I lost sight of the craft as I drove North into Arlington. The trees covered up every chance of the view because the trees were up high next to the road. I knew in my heart it was an object I had never seen before. I spotted the object again when I got down into the outskirts of Arlington so I decided to follow the craft. By then I was convinced it had to be a UFO. I took a left on 204th St. NE and
followed the road around heading north over to WA Highway 530 NE. I then took a left on Highway 530 NE and at that time I got a full view of the craft only it had moved nearly a mile away in the distance. It was only maybe a 1,000 feet above the ground. I began getting closer as I was driving 55 mph which was the legal speed limit. Maybe 8 minutes later I decided after seeing a line of cars pulled over next to the highway with people pointing in the sky most had gotten out of their cars which is exactly what I did finally. I was getting a look at what I was sure was a very large sphere shape object with an array of lights all across what appeared to be the front of the sphere that stretched around the middle of maybe a third of the outer edge of the sphere. There were a lot of lights on that craft. What was very strange the lights were so bright all you could see was a large black shape following directly behind it.
