Location: Puyallup, WA
Two men telephoned NUFORC on their cell phone to report having witnessed and estimated 8-10 tiny white, metallic-appearing round objects following a gray, transport-type aircraft, as it approached their general location from the east.
The men report that as the aircraft turned to the south, apparently turning south to land at McChord AFB, the objects suddenly accelerated, and quickly flew to the west out of the view of the witnesses.
The sky was clear of clouds, at the time of the sighting.
The witnesses telephoned the FAA Regional Headquarters to report the sighting, and the report was passed along to operations personnel in the FAA ARTCC in Auburn.
The witnesses have not yet submitted a written report, despite two requests by NUFORC. We will post their report at the next posting of newly received reports.
