In response to the article in the Seattle P-I on 18DE96, a woman called to report her observation of a very large object outside her home.

She was awakened by a buzzing, which at first she thought was her refrigerator upstairs which had "gone on the blink."

She went upstairs to check it, and discovered that the buzzing was not coming from her refrigerator, so she looked outside to the northwest.

Suddenly, she noticed a large, hovering object that was blindingly bright, generally circular, and flat on top. It was situated "between some trees." The object was very low to the ground, and it was much larger than a full moon.

The caller was frightened by what she saw, although she went back to bed and went to sleep. She volunteered that she did not sleep well that night.

She was not a believer in UFO's before this incident.
