Shape: Teardrop
Duration:10 secs.
An eliptical-teardrop shaped object travelling approx.15-20 degrees above the horizon, from SE to NW in a horizontal position along Seola Beach was observed for approx. 10 secs. at 21:45 Sunday, Oct. 3, 1999.

My home is located on a cliff overlooking Puget Sound. It faces south and looks across to Vashon Is. My living room is floor to ceiling glass, so the object that moved horizontally across the sky seemed to be following the coastline. It was extremely large and green-yellow; the object seemed to be outlined with a glowing yellow. Yellow, glowing particles were coming out of the tail. It moved steadily past my windows but not with such speed that I was not able to observe it. The object was as large or larger than a city bus, eliptical with a long tail. I might add that this is my first experience seeing something that cannot be explained, so perhaps it falls into the UFO category. I have lived at this location for many years and am well acquainted with th area. I am a graduate of the Univ. of Wa. and a retired teacher.
