I and a witness saw a black helicopter like object in a very populated area af Seattle Wa, got a good long look at it but it was night.

I and a friend were looking in the sky above a restaurant on the corner of Market st. and 15th st. Seattle Wa and we observed an helicopter shaped object hovering 50 -100 yards in the air. The object made absolutely no noise and hovered with no movement (perfectly still) in the air for some time. The object was completely black but due to the overcast sky we were able to make out its shape in silhouette. It was like a helicopter but with out a visible propeller and it had two large square "pontoon" looking things on the right and left (from where we stood it seemed as though we were looking directly at the front or back of the object but i can not say for sure). When I spoke to my friend about it again last year he said that he remembers a small flashing light on the bottom of it but I don't remember this.

We were joined by a stranger an he asked "Do you see that?" We all started to point and talk about it when the object took of south toward the side of Queen Anne hill. More specifically, it was perfectly still no wavering-nothing, then all of a sudden with out any sound or unnecessary movement it was moving at high speeds(jet like) it did not seem to accelerate but was just going that speed. Within less then one second it reached the side of the hill, ascended to just the crest and over the hill out of our view. I would estimate it covered the ground of about 3 miles in the matter of less then two seconds making no sound.

I will speak to my friend again and see if he can give me a more accurate date as I have can not remember at this time what the year was. This is the first time that i have reported the event other then retelling the story to close friends because in the past I know little about things of this nature and well had trouble believing it myself. Recently I have heard about sightings of similar objects and as soon as I heard what they were called I knew that it was the same thing that i had seen, Black Helicopters. Now that I know other people have seen them I am going to start to let people know that these things are real and that something is happening that involves these objects. I have made some speculation as to what i think that they are but as a witness I think that it would be improper to speculate in the forum.
