|light changing colors over olympia, wa
for an hour or so i saw a light about the size of a star far above the capitol bld. i am on the eastside of olymia and was looking at it west. like i said, it looked about the size of a star, but it was changing colors in a pulsing or rotating way--from white to red to blue. there are many planes flying over olympia at night, but this didn't move it's position. i tried to videotape it, but i just looked blurry, i couldn't focus it in. but zooming in on it made it look a definate shape, a sphere or almost barrel shape. the light seemed very bright though at a distance, like halogen lights. i suppose it could be a planet or plane? but it stayed there for at least an hour in the same spot, then i came back to the window and it was gone. at certain points i thought i saw tiny lights appearing near it and flying towards it.
((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the object may have been the star, Sirius. PD))
