|Super fast solid white glowing light in Moses Lake, WA
It was between 11:30pm and midnight on Monday, August 13th, 2007. My family and I were spending a few days away at a golf resort in Moses Lake. It was a clear and warm star-filled evening, so I decided to enjoy a few minutes of start gazing on our back deck before turning in for the night. Living in the city, I don't get to see the stars much. After being out there for 3 or 4 minutes, I noticed a solid, circular, glowing white light moving through the sky at about my 10 o’clock just a little left of the Grant County Airport.
At first, I thought it was an airplane; but as I watched it I realized that it was moving at an incredible rate of speed, and changed directions quickly and smooth. It was about the size of a bright star, and had a large glow to it. It did not have a blinking light like an airplane, and again, it was moving incredibly fast! There was no sound as if from a plane, and it was not accompanied by a tail as if it were a meteorite (shooting star).
Again, it was near the Grant County Airport, but that may have just been a coincidence because the object looked too far away to have originated from there. I was staying only about 20 minutes from that airport, and anything that close and "normal" would have been larger and loud. I watched it as it moved around across the sky until it began to fade at about my 2 o’clock. As it began to fade, the color changed to a fainted red just before it disappeared; almost as if that was the color of the underside. From there, it slowly faded away like it was getting farther and farther away from my direction.
This is by far the strangest thing I’ve ever seen. If it were some sort of airplane, it’s definitely nothing that I’ve ever seen before in my entire life. Circular, super fast, solid bright white and silent.
