Reported: 12/7/1996 02:35
Posted: 3/7/1998
Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:7 sec.
SUMMARY: Dimly lit group of colored objects hovering over the Woodland Park Zoo emitting light beams similar to spotlights.

I was walking my dogs with a friend in the park adjacent to the zoo; it was a lull in the heavy rain. We walked into a parking lot to use the tunnel on the way home.

As we emerged from the trees my friend pointed upwards. Just above the zoo, 400 yards from the parking lot were the four shapes in the sky: two faint blue spheres moving back and forth like in vibration as a pair.

Closer to us was a cylindrical object the same width of the spheres, and length three times the diameter (1x3), emitting a rose colored tint. The closest object was a larger sphere emitting a deep maroon glow.

The three (four) objects hovered back and forth independently, while their lights seemed to engulf them and be focused towards the ground at the same time.

After a few second of looking at these objects and being in awe the purple sphere became bright to the point neither of us could look any longer and were forced to look down.

When I looked up again there was nothing.

My friend then saw nothing.

My dogs did not seem to notice anything.
