A round object hit a plane and kept traveling.

Dear Sir. I tried to transfer my video of the event from my camra, but Ill have to find another way to do it. Thr first plane,(possibly an F-16), came from the South. Passing over head as it turned East, towards Seattle or Whidby Island. I began filming this because he was making a pink trail behind him in the sun-set.

I was standing where I could still see to the south from our yard. I vodeo-taped the second air craft, heading from the South to the North, crossing the Straights into Canada.

As I watched through my view finder. I saw something fly towards this, (possibly a militare plane, or a passenger), from the East to the West. Just before this round object hit the belly of this jet. The lights on both wings and the tail flashed on together. The round object went under the facing wing. And out the back. What looks like spray can be seen on the tape. But the round object can again be seen leaving the tail of the air craft and continuing West.

((FOLLOW-UP COMMUNICATION FROM WITNESS))

Dear Director,

My brother and I called you on the 21st to report something hitting a jet above our home here in Port
Angeles. I then wrote again to say that we were trying to get a freeze-frame from this video to show
you. Well they are in, but I can only send two your way right now.

Last night we had called the Coast Guard again about what was seen over our heads. They told us it had to be reported to the Sheriffs Office. After the cop saw the tape, he wanted to bring a friend of his who knows about ballistic missiles...because that is the most logical explanation, but they did not return.
My brother is now convinced that someone shot a rocket at a plane, which makes sense in a way. However, if it was a rocket!!

I on the other hand still think it is an un-identified- flying object. If you want to write back we will be here. Thank you! ((name deleted))

((NUFORC Note: We have inspected the two still frames sent with the message above, and we see only a tiny, dark "smudge" in the frame. We have requested a copy of the video tape to see how the object moves in the sky, and over what time period. PD
