Shape: Cigar
Duration: 7 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
We witnessed a large peach-colored cigar-shaped object move at a high rate of speed in a southerly direction.

The object caught my attention because of it's unusual color. We live on a high ridge between the Sea-Tac airport and Boeing Field, and are used to seeing all types of aircraft at all hours of the day and night. This thing was not like anything I've ever seen! I ran back in the house and grabbed my binoculars. My husband joined me in the yard where we watched it appear in the gaps between the trees, until it grew so small it disappeared. I estimate it followed I-5 southbound. The total elapsed time from first spotting it until it disappeared covered several minutes.
