Location: Lynnwood, WA
|Near Seattle, east to west siting, full stop, and then lit large object
July 24, 2004 11:17 pm Driving on I-5 southbound, 405 interchange, before Lynnwood I was a passenger in a car traveling southbound on I-5 when something caught my eye in the night sky. I saw a disturbance in the atmosphere, a streak of thin light appeared at approximately the 11 o’clock position moving east to west in a straight line to the 1 o’clock position at great speeds before it came to a full stop, and it then lit up briefly in a giant symmetrical walnut shape before disappearing.
The best way to describe the intensity of this object when lit, was like a car headlight using its high beams. Very bright, and I got a good look at it. It lit up in a stopped position for about a second and a half and then disappeared.
The entire episode took about 3 seconds.
The driver of the car saw nothing, but was quite disturbed by my reaction to what I saw.
I am a project manager, the driver of the car is an engineer.
