|Low, quick light seen over Olympia, Washington, neighborhood.
I was walking in my neighborhood and something caught my eye overhead. I looked up and saw a light move very quickly then disappear. The direction was northerly, in a straight line, no quick stops or turns. The light was steady white, not flashing, and no shape could be discerned. There was no sound at all either before or after I saw the light. There was no 'tail' or appearance of fire or dust like might be expected if it was a meteor. After only seconds, I could no longer see the light. It did not go behind trees or any obstruction, it did not appear to hit the ground, it was just suddenly no longer visible. The light appeared to me to be low in the sky, lower than the numerous commercial airlines I see and hear regularly. I have never seen anything like this before, and I regularly look at the sky in the evening, as my husband and I enjoy looking at stars and planets through a telescope. We have seen satellites - this was not one. We have seen shooting stars - this was not one. We have seen commercial airlines - this was not one. Most peculiar to me, was the fact there was absolutely no sound.
