|Swimming is surf.Two boys saw first.Yelled and pointed:"WHAT IS THAT!!!" I saw it.Close over bank.Bright silver.Up FAST!Angle.Tracked! Changed direction.Went up Coast.North(?)!Watched out of sight!
The boys,(ages 8 yrs/10 yrs),were swimming in the Surf with me at Kalaloch Beach, off Hwy. 101. Wa Olympic Penninsula. They both started screaming and yelling and pointing, behind us , up at the sky, yelling, "WHAT IS IT!!!???WHAT IS THAT?!". I got up,turned around and saw something BRIGHT SILVER ,gleaming it seems in the sun. No wings. Seemed at an angle. Deep in height. A wave knocked me down. When I looked again it was going up at a steep angle, high rate of speed. Looked white in co lor against a perfect clear blue sky, and was saucer/disked shape. It was travelling so so fast and went far up quickly, becoming very small and, high. I was knocked down three or four more times by the water, each time getting up, and finding it and tracking it until we could barely see it at all. Way up in the atmosphere, it appeared to suddenly change direction, heading more vertical, and away from us up the coast. We screamed and yelled at family on the beach , but with the surf pounding and the distance they could not hear us, and didn't see what we were pointing at. I have never seen anything like it. I wished I would have been looking earlier, or have saw it exactly when the boys did. I saw it just after. I was camping, at Kalaloch Campground , which I have done many years. The boys were my sister in laws nephews, whom I took to play in the Ocean waves. I am a 48 yrs young, woman, mother,and grandmother. I have an Assc. of Arts degree in Education. I am a regular person. I grew up out on the Penninsula, and have no reason to make this up. It seemed to be that as soon as we started pointing and yelling, the object (flying), left. I don't know that to be true either way, as I don't know how long it was there before we saw it. As I said, I saw now wings, was smooth, larger, and silver...then when it turned and went up, at that angle it was white , and disc/ saucer shaped. I have never seen anything travel that fast and get so small and so high, that quick. I can probably get the exact date, or close, figured out, if I sit down with a calander. Oh, we heard nothing... .
