Location: Seattle, WA

Duration:15 min.
Telephoned report: A woman called to report just having witnessed a very large, cigar-shaped object doing maneuvers in the western sky, viewed from near the corner of Airport Way and Spokane Avenue in south Seattle.

The witness described the object as being disc-like, or perhaps shaped like a cigar, with a distinct bulge on the top, and with several lights along the side, flashing in sequence from left to right. The object maneuvered to a considerable degree, executing a circular path, at one point. It appeared to the witnesses to be quite large, perhaps "three times the size of a (Boeing) 747."

The witnesses stopped their vehicle, and attempted to draw the attention of other drivers to the object, but not one either stopped, or took notice of the object.

((NUFORC Note: We asked the witness whether she thought the object might have been a blimp, and she insisted it was not. She and her boyfriend reside near Boeing Field, and they feel they are quite familiar with all types of aircraft. Please see other report from Vancouver, WA, for this date. PD))
