Posted: 2/11/2003
Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Disk
Duration:3 seconds
Brilliant, moon sized, white disc descending rapidly over Seattle that disappeared behind Capitol Hill.

I saw a very large, brilliant white disc "falling" in a diagonal trajectory that disappeared behind a hill in the distance. The sighting was of extremely short duration. The disc appeared to be as large or larger than a full moon appears in the sky yet of very similar color to a full bright moon. I called out to my companion who was just getting in the car with her back turned to the object. She turned to look but the object had disappeared. I called a local Seattle radio station to report the sighting and to ask if anyone else had reported it as well. They told me that no one else had reported it. I was quite surprised due to the size and brightness of the object. I am a real estate broker in the greater Seattle area with 26 years experience here.
