Location: Mica Mountain, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 sec
Round pure white UFO. About 45 degrees off horizon. Not fast enough for a meteor and too fast for a plane. Went to the ground.

After picking up 2 tons of hay at a farm south of Mica mountain we started home. It must have been between 8 nd 8:30pm. While driving down farm roads (no street lights or house light) we spotted a bright light in the sky. It was at about 45 degrees off the horizon. I don't know the directions as the roads turn around the mountain. It appeared to be a bright white light with fuzzy edges, as though light was escaping around it. It moved too slow to me a metor and too fast to be a plane. My friend said do you see that light and I said Yes, He said it's probably a meteor and I said no it's moving too slow. By the end of our conversation the object decended from the sky behind some tall pine trees (I could see the shadow) and to the ground or a valley below. I could not see where it ended up. There was no explosion and no sound. I looked in the newspaper and watched tv to see if there was a plane crash and there was none.
