Here is my report

I was 14 years old, in a bedroom in my parents 2 story solid brick home in Yakima, WA. At about 8:00pm the walls of my room began to rumble & shake & there was an unbelievably loud sound. I ran upstairs and screamed "are we having an earthquake?" and looked to see my Mom & Dad looking out a high window above our next door neighbor's house, upwards, and the sound persisted.

Then I got to look out the window & I saw a huge--as big as 3 or 4 houses around us (and we lived on a hill)--HUGE-Round Saucer. It had some kind of pulsating lights on the sides & was making this constant rythmic PULSATING-noise.

We were all mesmerized by it (a few minutes) and then it just shot up higher thru the neighborhood.

I do not remember any discussion among us (parents, self, 8 & 10 yr old sister) or anything after that until the next afternoon when I read in the Yakima Herald that many people reported seeing some kind of UFO the night before in our part of town.

This might be old news to you guys becuse it happened 38 years ago but I remember it clearly. UFO Books abound & there are a few about strange sitings near strange Hanford & the entire Upper & Lower Yakima Valley for 40 years. One is called The Yakima Experience/UFO sitings...the author had excellent documentation from Law Enforcement, State Patrol, etc & lots of black & white photograghs.

Sincerely, ((name deleted))
