Duration:10 min
It did not move or make any noise, the lights were very intense and pure in color, I will never forget it.

Was in the seventh grade at the time. Sleeping outside in the backyard, it was warm and clear. We were laying on sides talking and did not notice the object until we decided to go in house and get a snack, which required climbing stairs. When tilting my head back, I saw it. Round with neon like light, Green in the center and a orange ring of light on the outer edge. Very intense. Could not see any structure such as doors or windows etc. As far as size, hard to say against a night sky, but if Space Needle is about 600 feet high,this may have been 800 feet and about 50 feet in diameter. It made no sound and was perfectly still. It disappeared in an instant. Minutes later a Navy fighter which was flying so low and slow I could read stuff on the bottom of the wings. The plane was headed south east. May have come from Whidby island navel station. This happened in the Greenwood area in north Seattle.
