|High speed bluish sphere flew over me.
While I was driving south on I-5 through western Washington at approximately 2 am on the morning of August 6th, 2014, an object flew over my car which I could not identify. I had just passed the exits for Southcenter Mall and SeaTac Airport a few minutes earlier.
Although I only saw this object for a second at the very most, I do recall the image of it clearly, and the thoughts that raced through my mind at the time and shortly thereafter.
The object was a bluish white sphere that seemed to have an internal light source. It was flying in almost the exact same direction as I was driving. As the object quickly moved away in front of me, it seemed to lose some of its blue tint and become more white, but there was still a definite blue tint to it.
When I extend my arm fully and raise my thumb, I would say the object was twice the size of my thumb when it first appeared at the top edge of my windshield. By the time it vanished over the tree line, or the horizon, it seemed to be only half of its original size.
I could not see any stars in the sky at this time, and I’m not sure if there was some cloud cover or there was just too much “city light” at this location. My first thought was “wow, this thing is close”.
Immediately after this I was thinking “wow, it’s going to hit the ground”. (the object did seem to be losing altitude quickly). Before I even finished this second thought however, the object had already vanished from sight.
There was no flash, sound, or other evidence to convince me it did hit the ground, so now I think it just flew so fast that it disappeared over the horizon. I was asking myself what this thing could have been, but I didn’t have anything to even compare it to. Then I asked myself what it was NOT.
I’m sure it was not a plane or a jet of any sort, and I’m sure it was not a shooting star. At least not like any I have ever seen. This sighting happened 26 hours ago as I type this, and I’m still clueless as to what I actually saw flying over my car.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he sounded to us to be quite sober-minded. We suspect that he is a very good witness. PD))
