I noticed an object approx. the size of the full moon moving slowly towards the West. All of the sudden it made a sharp turn towards the South-S.E. and then shot straight up and disappeared from sight. I noticed, as this object turned towards the South-S.E., I could hear the loud thunder of jets comming.

At approximatly 12:45 A.M. July 10, I was upstairs opening the skylight, facing an Eastern direction, and I noticed a luminated object almost the size of the full moon moving slowly toward the West. I immediatly ran downstairs and out the back door to the patio. There, I saw the object directly above me still moving in a Westerly direction. All of the sudden it made a sharp turn towards the South-S.E. and then shot straight up and disappeared from sight. I noticed, as this object turned towards the South-S.E., I could hear the loud thunder of jets comming. This object was rounded on one part, from where I was I suppose you could say the back end, and taperd to a blunt almost squared off part in the front. As far as I could tell, it was virtually silent. The illumination was somewhat the color of flourescent lighting. This is a first for me. I have never actually seen anything like this before first hand. I'm located in South Prairie, which is 35 miles or so East of Tacoma close to Mt. Rainier.
