Sighting Report
Occurred : 6/26/1999 17:15 (Entered as : 6/26/99 17:15)
Reported: 6/27/1999 16:47
Posted: 2/11/2003
Location: Seattle (Georgetown), WA
Shape: Disk
Duration:5-10 minutes
slow moving, low altitude saucer heading N by NW, moving in a straight line, very steady. The disk seemed to be round but would at times appear flat as well, no larger than a nickel held at arms length, but still under the clouds.

My wife and I were eating our customary lunch on the road after purchasing the food from Maruta, a Japanese grocery in the George town district. We sat on a curb between Maruta and a Seafirst Bank, next to an on Ramp for I-5 a routine we've gone through several times in the past. One of the attractions ofcourse is the planes landing at King County Airport. After most of the meal I was looking up at the sky watching another plane come in when I noticed a dust spot on a cloud. I kept watching it to figure out what it was. Not being able to determine it, I asked my wife what she thought. She insisted it was a bird, but after careful scrutiny, realized it was round and had no movement as a bird might make, such as wings. Also, at this point we had been watching it a couple of minutes and it was moving in a straight line, no doubts. No bird can move that straight. We discussed wether or not it was a plane, of which there was one in the sky to compare with and decided no. Aside from the shape, there was absolutely no sound emanating from the object. A balloon, maybe, but at times it seemed flat and not round, as if it were a CD slowly spinning. LET ME POINT OUT THAT THIS ANALAGY IS NOT ACCURATE< IT IN NO WAY SEEMED LIKE A SPINNING OBJECT. That merely describes the transition between the round appearance and the flat. While watching, it appeared once my eyes adjusted to the sky's light, that the disk was not black as first appeared but rather a charcoal grey, my wife however maintains that it was black. As it slowly moved towards a cloud, one with shape, not the usual cloudy Seattle sky, I started telling my wife it was a UFO. She kept saying no, there is some explanation and was remaining very calm. I however was trying to get her to follow the UFO as it was moving by us. She threw away our trash, and started the car, we headed West on Bailey from Maruta's parking lot, the North on Corson Ave, but saw nothing, it was gone. I spent the next fifteen minutes trying to determine the time and direction of the sighting since we had neither a watch or map with us. I think the information given here is accurate and correct. Please call me for any other info you may need. I will be checking the web sight regularly for further occurances by others. Thank you, ((name deleted))r
