Text of Follow-Up Written Report: "UFO 1:03 a.m. Thursday morning November 23, 2000 Seattle, WA Maple Leaf Hill Elev. 400' N. E. 96th St. & 12th Ave. N.E. Intersection Sky conditions clear.

I was walking south on 12th Av. N.E. when a bright light with no sound passed over my head from the rear. I looked up at it when it first came into view and watched it move very rapidly to the southeast until it winked out 4 seconds later in the sky above a 30' high house. The light looked bright white, round, golf ball size when it was above me, but became a flattened horizontal band of 5 lights as it moved rapidly away from me, with a larger center bright light and other white lights with a hint of pale yellow to the sides of it. The lights maintained a constant altitude moving NW to SE (corrected 19.5 deviation compass reading S 135 E). The lights could have been 100-200' above me, judging from the height of the house above which it vanished. ((Illustration in text of report.)) Two seconds after it winked out, I sasw the red & white lights of a jet appear to the east of where the lights vnaished, as the jet was in the process of majing its turn to a south heading into SeaTac. This is my first unusual sighting. Signed, ((name deleted))"
