Posted: 2/4/2013
Location: Kennewick, WA
Shape: Oval
Duration:30 seconds
Object appeared in the early morning sky, was seen by more than one person, and affected the power in the immediate area.

Witnesses were standing on a street in East Kennewick, at the noted date and time. Suddenly, the power went out for several city blocks. They looked up, and spotted a large oval shaped object, larger than the Sun in appearance, moving slowly across the city in a NE direction, toward the Columbia River. The object made no noise, nor did it lose any debris; no unusual scents or animal movement known. After approximately 30 seconds, the object disappeared from sight.

As to the craft itself, it was dark orange in the center, turning lighter shades toward its outer edges. Those edges were not clearly defined, but, rather, appeared blurry and may have pulsated.

There were no ill effects on any witnesses, local media did not respond to my report of this event.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with the father of the youthful witnesses, and we were impressed by the apparent sincerity of the witnesses. We have encouraged the witnesses to contact the press, in order to try to find other witnesses. PD))
