witnessed very bright light,it rose into the sky very large,the size of a football field. It had lights placed in a sporadic fashion on the bottom and made no sound as it moved toward us. It banked to the right and was gone in a few seconds going toward the Olympic Mountain Range over the Puget Sound. We spoke to the Police Officers that witnessed it shortly after at the Police Station. We were advised by the Police Department to report the sighting to the Natl. UFO Hotline which we did. It began when we heard the Officer on a Police Scanner call in about a very bright light in the sky above his car in a area that was at the time being developed. We left and went into tne vicinity and witnessed it from about a mile from his locatin. He was joined by another officer. I am writing in response to hearing other sightings recently that seem to be very close to what we witnessed.

AROUND July 1978 WE WERE AT MY PARENTS HOUSE AND HAPPENED TO HEAR ON A POLICE SCANNER THAT A POLICE OFFICE IN LYNNWOOD WA. WAS REPORTING SEEING A VERY, VERY BRIGHT LIGHT IN THE SKY. HE WAS ABOUT A MILE FROM DOWNTOWN LYNNWOOD WHEN HE SAW A LIGHT THAT BEGAN TO DESCEND FROM THE SKY. HE CALLED TO REPORT IT AND THEN REQUESTED ANOTHER OFFICER JOIN HIM. AT THE TIME WE WERE IN EDMONDS AND LEFT TO GO TO THE VICINITY THEY WERE. DRIVING INTO DOWNTOWN WE DECIDED TO GO UP ON A HILL THAT IS ACROSS TOWN (MAYBE A MILE) FROM WHERE THE OFFICERS WERE. WE SAW A VERY BRIGHT LIGHT THAT WAS STATIONARY IN THE SKY AND WATCHED IT UNTIL IT BEGAN TO MOVE ACROSS THE SKY TOWARD THE DIRECTION WE WERE OBSERVING FROM. THE LIGHT THEN BECAME A VERY LARGE TRIANGULAR OBJECT THAT SEEMED TO HAVE ALMOST SOMEWHAT ROUNDED SIDES TO IT. IT CONTINUED OUR DIRECTION, IT APPEARED TO BE AT LEAST AS LARGE AS A FOOTBALL FIELD. IT MADE NO NOISE AND HAD LIGHTS THAT WERE POSITIONED IN AN ODD WAY. DO NOT RECALL THE LIGHTS AS HAVING COLOR. IT QUICKLY BANKED TO THE RIGHT AND WITHIN A FEW 2-3 SECONDS IT DISSAPEARED OUT OVER THE PUGET SOUND TOWARD THE OLYMPIC MOUNTAIN RANGE. WE SPOKE BRIEFLY WITH THE OFFICERS THE THE LYNNWODD POLICE STATION AFTERWARD AND THEN WE WERE ADVISED TO CALL THE UFO HOTLINE AND MAKE A REPORT WHICH WE DID. I AM WRITING TO YOU TONIGHT AFTER HEARING YOUR SHOW TODAY ON KIRO RADIO AND HEARING WHAT WAS SO CLOSE TO SOMETHING I WILL NEVER FORGET. YOU MAY EMAIL ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE ANY ADDITIONAL DETAILS.
