|Strobe-type light moving quickly
We live on the far south edge of Seattle just north of Renton, WA, just two blocks up from Lake Washington (so we have large windows and a view of the lake across from Mercer Island) and about five blocks north of the Boeing plant, which is on the south end of Lake Washington. So it may have been something from Boeing -- who knows. But after six months living here, this is unlike anything we’ve seen, and we see a lot of flying craft passing over the lake.
Around 10:45 p.m. a flashing white light caught my eye. It looked like a strobe light and was moving north to south quickly. I thought at first it was a police light but realized it was in the air, not on a street on Mercer Island as first thought. My husband and I went out onto our back deck to get a better look, and the light suddenly reversed direction, moving from south to north. My husband said, "Oh my god, look how fast it's going!"
Then the light moved as if it were coming toward us (west). Then it moved southwest over our house and disappeared from our view.
Whatever it was sounded like a plane, not a helicopter, but there were none of the blue or red flashing lights you usually see on plane wings; it was just a white light that would come completely on, the go completely off, so you couldn't see it at all in the split-second that the light was off.
Just after this light disappeared, two planes appeared to the north and the difference was marked -- their lights appeared more yellow and they appeared to be moving much slower than whatever else we saw.
Anyway, it was different, so there it is. Thanks.
