|Large harvest moon shaped object between the hills in Auburn Wa.
I am a registered nurse who was on the way for weekend duty at a hospital in Federal Way. I am not sure on the date, since it has been so long ago, but I think it was the end of August of 1999.At that time, I was not aware of this site, so my posting is late. But,I am aware that there was at least one other person that saw the same thing I did. That person filed a report here and I found it when doing a search in the archives of this site. For that person--- Here is what I too, saw. I was leaving my home in Lakeland Hills @ 0530, turned the corner and looked over to the left towards the dead in road, where the the hill drops off to a valley. I saw a low-lying- almost at the horizon level "harvest moon" but it had some kind of angular shape in front of it. It was huge and beautiful but something about the black angular shape in front of it bothered me- a weird, weird black shape. I turned right and kept driving- a few seconds later, I then looked over to my left again to try to get a glimse of Mt. Raineer. I was completely shocked when I saw the real moon way, way up in the sky and it was not a full moon at all!! I wondered then, what had I seen just a few seconds earlier.
