Sighting Report
Occurred : 4/22/1998 21:23 (Entered as : 04/22/98 21:23)
Reported: 4/23/1998 00:23
Posted: 1/28/1999
Location: Bangor Submarine Base (Olympic Penninsula), WA
Shape: Disk
Duration:2 seconds
Entire bottom of disk was glowing except for center circular area approximately 30% of the diameter. Total diameter approx 100 feet. Object 300-400 feet off ground moving slowly & silently directly over Bangor Submarine Base. Distance from me approx 3/4 mile.

The glow on the bottom of disk was totally white... (no colors). I seemed to be seeing only the bottom of the disk. Later during same evening (11:15 newscast) on Seattle Television (King 5) there were reports of strange green flashes of light in the sky at 9:15 pm to the west of Seattle. This was approximately the same time... yet I saw no flashes ... only the disk. There was no sound from the disk. It did appear to be descending slightly as it moved from a northerly to a south-westerly direction across Bangor Submarine Base. I was the only observer in my household.

I am 54 years old and a Information Systems analyst with Electronic Data Systems in Poulsbo, and am also a retired government (U.S. Navy) computer analyst.
