Duration:10-15 seconds
After finishing a late even business meeting, at the home of a friend, myself and two (2) other associates, were saying our final goodbyes, near our parked vechile, on a residential street. Myself and another person was standing on the passenger side on the car facing East, with the other person standing on the drivers side of the car, faced West. We were out on the street, for approximatly 10 minutes. I remember the sky being clear enough to see the stars and the approaching planes at near by Boeing Field. As we were finishing up our conversation, the person on the drivers side of the car, looked up and pointed over our shoulders and said look. We turned and saw a BRIGHT, ROUND, REDISH, ORANGE, UNFAMILIAR FLYING OBJECT, flying from West to East, fairly low. It traveled in that direction for approx. a few seconds and then made a turn and started to travel in a NorthEastern direction. It traveled N.E. for a few more seconds, we could clearly see it traveling across the sky, at that point I told the guys it was only a meteor falling from the sky, At that monment the craft made another sudden turn due North and increased speed and zipped away very, very fast. One of the guys started running down the block to keep it in eyesight, but it faded out of view, as it flew away. I made the comment that what ever it was, it could have easily have crossed the state within a minutes time, thats how fast it appeared to fly away. As an Ex-Navy Aviation Operations Yeoman, I've seen various types of military Aircraft, including the F/A-18 and others. For those planes to travel at their highest rate of speed, theres always an after blast/Sonic Boom. This object travel much, much faster, made impossible turns and theres was no sound.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke at length with this witness, and we found him to be an exceptional witness. He had a very good look at this object. PD))
