Duration:2-3 minutes
Large bright white oval ball of light hovering over lynnwood or edmonds on 1/26/01 around 10:30 pm

As i was coming home from a friends house i turned onto my street and through my windsheild up above the tree line , i saw a bright white glowing object. I was intstantly stunned by how bright it was. It 's as if it was above my house, because i was heading directly home and the object seemed to be directly in front of me. As i drove up my street the object seemed to sort of bob up and down but didn't appear to be moving laterally. As i rushed down the street and pulled into my driveway, i stopped my car and jumped out to run out to the street to see it, and it was gone. This object seemed to almost eminate this soft bright white light in a pulsating, circular way . It was brighter and purer of a light than i've ever seen. I was very large in the sky, about the size of two full moons, but more oval. It was also completly silent out. If it were a helicopter or aroplane at that distance there would of been sound. And it couldn't have vanished in the time i went from my car to the street. Which would have been about 3 seconds. I stood in the street waiting for it to return for about 15minutes, but it never returned.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the sighting might have been caused by Venus. Just a guess. PD))
