Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Craft with unusual sound flies over dark and fog shrouded Lake Stevens while being pursued by fast moving car.

A craft flew over my house that had a sound like nothing I've ever heard before. I'm guessing that it was within a 1000 feet because of the doppler effect that I'm used to from other craft fly by while approaching the airport. I saw a car chasing it down the street like a bat out of hell. The sound was traveling from east to west and the craft appeared to hover in a stationary manner over the lake for the better part of a minute and was was giving off an intense gold light that was dispersed by the fog above the water. The engine sound was very smooth and almost sounded musical with just a hint of a regular pulse. The tone could be likened to a number of square waves all tuned to different spectrums that would modulate independently of one another by just +/- 5 or 12 Hz. The regular pulse was occuring at the rate of about 120 beats per second was was very faint. This thing didn't have the slightest hint of a jet engine, prop or blade. I live near an airport so I know the airplanes in the area. This was not one of them.
