Reported: 3/28/2011 9:29:11 PM 21:29
Posted: 4/3/2011
Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Disk
Duration:1-2 minutes
Thin white or gray line, like side of disc, with two lights in the middle moving across the early morning sky.

Apparently I accidently took a photo of a long bright unidentified flying object moving above the moon from left to right. I really never realized that it was there during the time I was taking a series of bracketed photos, but what turned out in my digital images appears to be moving in each shot. The long thin-lit object about 30-40 feet wide, appears to have two lights set in the middle, as it was flying over the bay.

I was taking these photos while staying at this condo for a convention in Seattle. I took a series of photographs off the balcony on March 18, 20011, Friday morning at about 5:20 a.m.- 5:21 a.m. before the sunrise, showing the full moon over the bay near Smith Tower. I focused on the buildings to make sure my photos would turn out and did not pay any attention to an object moving! Actually, this thing is like a ‘flaw’ to me in my photos and is an inconvenience to me. I’d like to know if this is a plane (but I heard nothing). Here is another part of this that is really strange? One of my last frames showing the UFO at the end of this minute there is another light to the far right of my frame on one photo, a really bright light that is round in the sky. I am going to assume that is a plane? Why? I didn’t know that planes are able to fly over the port area of Seattle like that? I’ve no scratch or dust on my lens as I took a couple hundred photos in my camera with no patterned mark like this. Also, this thing is moving in each shot. Do you have any idea if this is an anomaly or an actual UFO?
