Reported: 2/16/2006 3:41:23 PM 15:41
Posted: 3/11/2006
Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:2 minutes
Cylindrical object with 3-4 rows of bright lights & vapor between ground & object hovering silently at 500-1000' above ground.

An object that appeared to be around 40-50' in diameter appeared to be hovering silently at an approximate altitude of 500-1000' above the ground. The object had 3-4 rows of extremely bright lights (with clear lenses) around its perimeter. These lights made it difficult for the observer to determine the shape and size of the upper portion of the object. However, the underside was circular and the sides with the lights were cylindrical in shape. From the bottom of the object was a somewhat thick, white trail, like a water vapor, with no sign of gray exhaust (or any type of carbon-based fuel). This object hovered at this low altitude for about a minute. When the witness (my wife) and I returned to where she saw the object (1-2 minutes after sighting), it was gone. This sighting was in NE Seattle, at the corner of 14th Ave. E and NE 120th (above the Pinehurst Park). The next day, I spoke to another person who had witnessed (what she described to be) a similar object in the sky to the west of Magnuson Park in Seattle (towards where my wife saw it). 10-15 minutes later, another witness saw (what appeared to be) a military/security helicopter rushing towards the direction of this sighting, despite the fact that we did not report it. Perhaps someone called 911...
