Location: Vashon Island, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:30 min
Slow moving, flashing light

My wife and I were on our back porch to try and see a meteor or two, and while we managed to catch a couple in the full moon, we also saw an odd light that I've never seen before.

The object was a single point of light that appeared as a very short flash that repeated at a very regular interval. It appeared every 32 to 35 seconds.

It was first noticed fairly high in the sky, and very slowly moved due East. We are surrounded by trees, so we could not track it very far, but it took at least 30 minutes to move the short distance. Through binoculars, it still did not have any specific shape and looked white to slightly yellow. There were no clouds at the time. As stated above, there was a full moon up, and we are less than 10 miles from Seattle, so there is a lot of light pollution.

I've seen plenty of satelites in the past, but this seemed quite different. I'm sure someone knows what it is, I'm just dying to find out.


((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness at length, and we found him to be quite credible. PD))
