On 07-11-08/ 1730 hours, two adults witnessed an unidentified object near the 7300 block West Seattle. The object was described as being directly overhead. Weather conditions were very clear, estimated tempature was low 70's. Witnesses reported a light wind from the southwest. Due to the clarity of the skies, witnesses had difficulty in determining scale and altitude. It was estimated to be about the size of a quarter coin when compared against a human hand held up in comparison. The witnesses were quite certain that the object remained motionless for several minutes, as if hovering.
During the event, they saw what appeared to be a commercial airliner flying near the object at a much higher altitiude. The object was a third smaller than the aircraft as it transited the area. The object displayed no movement, appeared to be light colored, with a haze around it. The object reportedly changed from round to a tubular or cigar shape. No noise could be associated with the object. Witnesses appeared to be credible, lucid and sober. This area is very populated with commercial aircraft.
