Duration:2 minutes
Flying fire spheres decending then accending out of sky over Everett WA 1 mile. above city.

It’s been roughly 30 minutes sense the experience.

My girlfriend and I had just finished a long walk in the park and were now 10-15 feet from the car. It had just gotten dark with a barley noticeable hint of light off in the sunset horizon. The parking lot was slightly lit with a few street lights but still dark. From one split second to the next, a very bright glowing object caught my eye from behind one of the tree tops, slightly to my right. I immediately grabbed my girlfriend and pointed it out to her. It seemed to take a quick second before it registered to her, then as I remember her words, "Oh, my gosh."

At this moment I thought I was seeing a flaming meteorite coming toward the mill creek area from the North West sky. I thought it was going to impact upon Mill Creek (a small suburban area adjacent to the South end of Everett). It was heading south east toward the ground. A second object followed directly behind the first in the exact same path. The airborne objects proximity seemed to be approximately 1-2 miles away, seemly closer to a mile. Their estimated size was impressive appearing the equivalency of a small to medium size two story house. If I were to extend my arm and hold my thumb in the sky to its location it would have easily doubled the size of my thumbnail, if not larger.

After 8-12 seconds of first sighting, it became vividly apparent that this was defiantly not a meteorite. There was a brief moment where I wondered if this object was an aflame, out of control aircraft. After 15-20 seconds of continued observation, I identified the object as a controlled, somewhat slow moving object that was not a part of the natural occurring environment. Shortly after continued observation the object did appear to have flames coming from it, however they were not out of control. It appeared to have a spherical globe around it containing and controlling the flames. It’s steady, even and concise movements quickly made it apparent that it was not aflame. Moreover, the spherical globe around it became more visible. These observations were taking place as the object stopped its downward movement toward Mill Creek and began an upward climb out of the city. Its movement was so clean, even and precise that its rapid accent was one of the most intriguing points abo! ut the entire sighting. It disappeared without seeming like it was moving fast. In an instant it was gone as it appeared to move directly out of our atmosphere. The second object followed suit exactly.

TO BE 100% CLEAR AND UNSWERVINGLY CLEAR ABOUT THREE THINGS: 1. This was not an aircraft even remotely resembling any aircraft within the worldwide public aeronautics industry.

2. This sensory experience defies many laws of physics and rational thought. I am a scientific mind and have always required tested proof to accept something as fact. These beliefs have all been challenged with this experience. I am forever affected.

3. I now know for a fact that there are things in our reality that we don’t have a clue about, that we cannot comprehend. Even if the airborne object I saw was government owned, it was far beyond explanation. I am finally at peace.
