Dear Mr. Davenport,

I am writing to report several UFO sightings I have witnessed over the past 4 years. I am 33 years old, and have never seen a UFO before until 2010. I am a mother of two children (10 and 8 years old) and do not use drugs or alcohol. I am a stay at home mom who homeschools. Along with myself, my husband and two children have been co-witnesses to the sightings. One of my neighbors was also present during one of the sightings.

In October 2010, I moved to Goldendale, Washington. We had just bought our 5 acre property and were living in a fifth wheel while developing the property for a home. Our property is 15 miles outside of town and is in the woods. We had a small campfire and it was about 8pm at night. My husband and I were standing outside around the campfire and the children were there as well. It was a clear and cold October night sky. My husband and I looked up, and right above the 70ft pine trees about 100 yards away, appeared a bright yellow light about the size of a washing machine and round in shape. It was noiseless and moving towards us fairly slowly. As it got above the trees that were right around us, it shot up straight into the sky as fast as you could blink and disappeared. There was no noise. We both saw this and the encounter lasted about 10-15 seconds. My children did not see this one.

The second sighting was in the winter of 2012/2013. I got up in the middle of the night and went into my living room and looked out my windows. Across the road, was a ploughed wheat field about 80 acres in size with pine trees flanking the sides and back of the field.

I witnessed another yellow orb hovering above the trees in the back of the wheat field. It hovered for several minutes, and then it shot up in the air and disappeared. I did not know if there was noise, as I was inside. The orb was the size of a basketball from where I was.

The next day my neighbor, who lives about 15 acres down the road from me, came over and asked if I had seen the orb the night before at the back of the wheat field. I verified that I had, and his description was the same as mine.

The third sighting was the same time, winter of 2012/2013 and I was driving home from town with my two children. It was about 9pm. To the north of town, there is a small mountain range called the Simcoe Mountains. The children and I saw a huge neon green fireball shoot across the top of the mountain range and disappear. The light was very bright and noticeable and lasted about 3 seconds. It started out bright green, then turned a brilliant orange. I do not know if anyone else from town saw this, but there were at this time, several places around the world on the news reporting fireballs in the sky.

In the summer of 2013, my children were playing outside in the middle of the afternoon. They came bursting inside the house and said they saw a UFO and wanted me to come and look. I went outside, and to my amazement, there was a metal, cigar or blimp shaped craft hovering above the woods. It was not directly above us, but aways off and hovering about as high as a low flying helicopter. It looked about the size of a washing machine from where we were but cigar or blimp shaped. The sighting lasted 10 minutes and it just dissolved away before our very eyes. It made no noise, and it hovered in place the whole time. The children and I saw this same craft about 3 more times this summer. At the last sighting, my neighbor was over talking with me in my backyard. The children who saw it first, pointed it out to us in the sky. We all stood and watched it for about 10 minutes and it too dissolved and disappeared.

The recent sightings were June of 2014. The weather was warm and the children and I decided to camp outside on our trampoline for the night in our backyard. There were clear skies that night. The stars were brilliant as we lay on the trampoline. The children and I witnessed about 100, what appeared to be 'stars,' moving about the skies. They moved sporadically and they would get brighter and then appear to burn out and disappear after moving around the skies for several seconds. There was one after another. They would appear and carry on in the same fashion. We called them 'bobbles'. This went on about an hour and a half, in which we then decided to sleep in the house instead. This was the week before the war in Israel started with Hamas.

October 2014, on the night of the blood moon, I decided to stay up all night to see the moon eclipse. At 3:30am, at the height of the eclipse, I woke my family up to come outside and see it. My daughter and I walked out our back door first onto our back deck with my son and husband following behind. As soon as my daughter and I reached the edge of the deck, we turned back towards our house to look at the moon which was above the house. At the ridgeline of the roof, a bright, white light appeared and flew along the entire roofline of the home. It was an orb, very bright, brilliant white, and kind of had an appearance of a 'sparkler.' The kind I used to play with on the fourth of July as a kid. It was not more than a foot above the roof, and was about the size of a cantalope. It lasted 3 seconds and my daughter and I gasped in amazement having both seen it. My husband and son had not looked up in time, having therefore missed it.

We marveled at the moon and described the orb we saw for several minutes, and at that point, my husband went back inside. As the children and I walked off the deck and into the yard, we saw another orb just like the one a few minutes prior. It appeared 20 ft above us, flew for 3 seconds and fizzled out. It too looked like a sparkler and was the same size. All three of us saw this one. There was no noise with either one.
