|Air traffic controller in Walla Walla Airport tower calls to report witnessing unusual object in night sky.
He saw a pale yellow light to the southeast of tower. It looked somewhat square, although he could not be sure that he had had a good look at it.
The object passed directly overhead of his position, at which time he noted that it was dropping something off of it.
He thought the object might have been something conventional, like a flare suspended from a balloon.
He called the Walla Walla Police Department and reported it, I believe he reported.
