Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:10seconds
I saw a very fast moving light heading due north along Puget Sound at approximately 11:30 PM March 13 2001.

Approx. 11:30PM, looking due west from Normandy Park, just south of Seattle I saw a very fast moving light heading due north right over Puget Sound, it was low against the horizon and my guess is 5000-8000 ft high. I am in the Air and Ocean Freight business and have worked around Sea-Tac Airport for 25 + years. This was not a commercial Aircraft, it was moving way to fast and there was a single light, no blinkers. If I was to guess I would say it was moving at close to 1000 Knots, was too low to be a sattelite and made no noise whatsoever.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke at length over the telephone, and we found him to be an unusually credible witness. He is very experienced at looking at, and identifying aircraft, and he was adamant that what he saw was not a conventional aircraft. He mentioned that the time he first indicated was only an estimate. We have corrected the time to what we feel is a more accurate time for the incident. PD))
