Location: Interstate 5 (approx mile marker 63), WA

Duration:About 10 minutes
I was told to write ya'll following talking to a guy that's into ufos.

Last year coming back from Oregon my buddy and I observed a large light in the distance that somewhat appeared to be lightning, but only a whole lot bigger. This light in my estimation was about 10-12 miles long.

The whole thing was very strange really as we both are familiar with lights in the distance considering our travels, but this is unlike anything I've ever seen before. I doubt it was a "ufo," but I sure would be interested if anyone else that saw it called it in at the time or might have some sort of explanation. I've traveled through there at night many times and have never seen it before or after that.

((ADDENDUM FROM SOURCE OF ORIGINAL REPORT))

I was riding as a passenger northbound along Interstate 5. ((name deleted)) the driver also witnessed this light of sorts in the sky. I've managed to pin point two possible dates that this occured. We are a part of a semi pro ((deleted)) team, he a ((position deleted)) and me the ((position deleted)) and we were coming back from a game. It was either 3/17/07 or 4/14/07 according to last years schedule. It was pretty weird and weird enough for me to commit mile marker 63 to memory, however I don't know whether it started or ended on that number. I can tell you we are both well traveled and have never seen anything like this. ((name deleted)) and I discussed it the other day as I told him I wrote you....he just shook his head..."that was wierd." At the time I thought perhaps we'd hear something about it on the news or something, but nothing came of it.

A few weeks ago I heard a guy by the name of Ralph Meaney ((local Seattle UFO investigator)) speak about UFO's and spoke with him briefly prior to the speech. Something he showed me persuaded me to report this incident. I can tell you that both ((name deleted)) and I are normal everyday guys that simply saw something weird and would like to know if perhaps somebody else reported this....surely somebody else saw it, and what it was. We're both well traveled and haven't ever seen anything like this before. You know what's really amazing about this is that we've went to Oregon many times in our lives and never seen this before? He's 45 and I am am 40. I have vivid recollection about it so if you need anything else let me know.
