Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Speed Walker on Mt. Rainer came out on que.

James said, "Should we use the Dr. Greer meditation?" half joking and I said, "no, they already know we are here." We were outside on the mountain at 10:30p.m.there was a full moon and no clouds. We were using our binoculars and night vision and were looking at the stars in the night sky. A large light slightly brighter than a large star which had been sitting motionless for a half hour suddenly, started moving from N.E. to S.E. at approx. 45 degrees above the horizon We had been watching planes fly slowly by during the evening and knew immidiatly it was a UFO. We have seen ufos many times before so are familar with their flight pattern. From a stopped position it speed up three or four times faster than the planes or jets that we could see in the distance.It varied its speed slowing down and speeding back up for about ten seconds than James who had been looking at the ufo with his binoculars took them down for a quick readjustment. I looked at my night vision scope in preparation to looking through it. This took about one second for both of us to make these adjustments when we both looked back to our amazement it was completely gone from the center of the sky a distance that would have taken a plane about ten minutes to travel. We both realized even more deeply how prevalant and a part of the universe UFOs really are.
