Shape: Light
Duration:60 seconds
Spot of light zig-zagging over Seattle.

My wife and I saw an unusual light in the night sky while standing on the roof of our apartment building in the Ballard neighborhood of North Seattle. The light sometimes appeared as two separate points, almost like green spots moving side by side, and at other times appeared as a single point emitting white light not unlike a star. The light moved alternately in circular, saccadic, and up and down patterns. The light moved much faster and in trajectory patterns that did not resemble that of familiar aircraft. The phenomenon was observed to the west in the sky from our vantage point, and the distance was difficult to determine. Near the end of the sighting the object appeared to descend toward ground level.
