Duration:60 sec.
Woman and daughter hear, and see, a very brightly lighted, spherical "ball of light" move across Lake Washington.

Telephoned report: A woman called from the Leschi district of Seattle, located on the western shoreline of Lake Washington, and approximately intermediated between the two bridges that cross the lake, to report having just witnessed with he daughter a very bizarre, spherical object moving across the sky toward the northeast.

She described the object's (apparent) size as perhaps slightly greater than that of a full Moon, and it was extremely brightly lighted, giving off a bright blue hue. ((NUFORC Note: We believe the witness implied implied an appearance roughly the equivalent of an electric welding arc. PD)) However, the object appeared to consist of many smaller lights, clustered within the periphery of the generally circular looking object.

The witness also reported that the object seemed to her and her daughter to be giving off a hissing sound as it moved slowly across the clear, cloudless sky toward the northeast.

The witness called 9-1-1 to report the sighting to the local police.

((NUFORC Note: We have spoken with this witness on three occasions, and she seems quite lucid, objective, and credible, to us. She holds a very responsible employment position in education. PD))
