Sighting Report
Occurred : 7/1/1951 03:00 (Entered as : 07/01/51 3:00)
Reported: 12/14/2013 9:40:50 PM 21:40
Posted: 12/23/2013
Location: Otis Orchards, WA
Shape: Disk
Duration:~2 minutes
Cigar shaped Disc darting back and forth (East/West), Western shores of Liberty Lake, WA & West, @ < 45 degre angle to So. Horizon

In the summer of 1951, my father and I were playing catch in our front yard of our home about ½ mile So. of Trent Road, NNW of Liberty Lake in Otis Orchards, WA. I was 8 YO at the time. I spotted a Cigar shaped Disk in the sky to the SSW, darting back and forth, East and West (Covering ~ 5 or 6 miles, each “Zip/Dart”). This activity was taking place at just less than a 45 degree angle from our location, above the So. Horizon. Liberty Lake lies just to the So. and that seemed to be the end of each “Zip/Dart” to the East.

I asked my father, “What is that?. He turned around, observed, and stated, “That’s a Flying Saucer. People from outer space are here to visit.” We continued to watch for about a minute or so. I turned around and ran to the front door to call my mother, so she could see it as well. When I turned around after calling her, it was gone.

While this report has been written since June, following Peter’s appearance on Coast, and never reported, please reference a similar Sitting, the same summer in Otis Orchards. In that report, Mica Peak is about 4-5 miles, EES of Liberty Lake. The activity I saw was about 4-10 miles directly West of Mica Peak on the same East/West axis.

While the Mica Peak report was a “Bright White Sphere”, all I saw was a “Cigar shaped Disc”, and no Jets from Mc Cord or Fairchild. Perhaps this/these sittings were part of an Alien “Operation”, with this area being their AO. ??? (The “A” on Google Map is “Mica Peak”.)
