Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:~5 minutes
Black sphere over Seattle

Black sphere similar to the one(s) filmed in Southern California and Ecuador around the same time and posted to YouTube. From atop our building's roof deck we observed this sphere move south above Puget Sound at a relatively low speed and at various heights. At the time of evening aviation lights would have been easily seen, but we saw none from this object. It did not flash, glow, or display any light or give off any sound. We are very familiar with aircraft as Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is located nearby, Boeing is local, and sea planes and other small craft are a fixture in our skies as they come and go from our many bodies of water. We observed commercial and light aircraft with appropriate aviation lighting at the same time as the event, all clearly identifiable. When we attempted to photograph the sphere, our cameras would not focus on the object, thus a black blur is all that is observable.
