Posted: 2/11/2003
Location: Shoreline, WA
Shape: Circle
Duration:20 seconds
Light grey, no lights, traveling fast and low, small in size, silent, steady path, illuminated by city lights on bottom.

The object entered my line of sight from the north. I can only describe its shape like that of an aspirin. It had no lights and made no sound. It traveled due south in a straight line and never swayed or strayed from its path. The street lights of the city illuminated the bottom of the object and revealed a flat, light gray surface. It appeared round but not like a ball. If I compared the size of the object to that of the full moon in the night sky, I would say it was approxiamtely one-tenth the size. The object traveled fast, but not as fast as a shooting star, and not as slow as a satellite. I watched it as it travelled to the south and out of my sightline. The duration of the sighting was approximately twenty seconds.
