Sighting Report
Occurred : 10/31/2002 07:45 (Entered as : 10/31/02 07:45AM)

Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:five minuets
Small bright light around north face of Mt. Rainier

I was travelling south on I-5 from Seattle with Mt. Rainier in clear view. I noticed a bright light against the mid-protion of the mopuntain (north face) that did not appear to move. I thought that it might be a plane coming in to Sea Tac with the sun reflecting off of it but when I look at it again it was still in the same place. A minute later, when my view was restored, the object moved to the west side of the mountain and, I think, at a lower altitude. After that, the object moved further west and then I lost view of it as it, from what I could perceive, moved to the south. Before I left to go to work, morning broadcaster report on KUOW (94.9)mentioned that a man called in the station to report a strange light in the Cascades. Traffic reporter could not confirm. Sighting repeated twice. Time of airing was between 07:10 and 07:35.

((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain anonymous, but we believe he is the same party who telephoned the NUFORC Hotline about this sighting. PD))


Do not post this again since you already have a few days ago. I reported the white light around Mt. Rainier (viewed on I-5 S in Seattle)on October 31. I do prefer to remain anonymous, however, I want to confirm with you thatI was not the person you suggested may have contacted NUFORC that day with a similar report. I only submitted my observation via e-mail.
