|NUFORC Copied report:
A man and his wife, both experienced pilots, called the Hotline to report that they had just witnessed a very large, I.e. approximately twice the apparent size of a full moon, triangular object pass overhead their position in Kirkland, WA.
The husband, a former U. S. Navy aviator during WWII, witnessed what at first appeared to be three stars moving in formation. Shortly after first witnessing the three lights, arranged in a triangular formation, he realized that he could see a mass between them, which he perceived to be a body of a craft. He estimated its (apparent) size to be larger than that of a full moon.
The object, which appeared to the witnesses to be gray (even though the sky was dark by this time of night), suddenly accelerated at a phenomenal rate, and streaked to the south and disappeared behind clouds on the southern horizon.
