Blue sphere moving slowly at low altitude, stopping twice to hover over road and then lake, vanishing with incredible speed

5-31-10 I have not told anyone else about this event, with the exception of my children. I was never completely sure about what it was that I actually saw, but I know what I saw was real. I did not want to sound like a nut case, or someone that was trying to get attention through sensational happenings. However, after years of watching programs about UFO sightings and reading testimonials of others that have described over and over almost exactly, in most cases what I witnessed, I have finally decided for sure that I saw a UFO that did not seem to be anything that could be designed and operated by people from Earth.

My wife and I were driving home after checking on our employees that worked late shifts. We were heading North on I-405 through Kirkland WA. My wife was sleeping. It was about 4:30 am when I saw a bright fluorescent sphere moving very slow from east to west. It had just cleared over the top of a hill to my right and lowered to a few hundred ft. above the road. Then it stopped directly above the road and hovered there for a few seconds.

I yelled at my wife to wake up and to take a look at what was right in front of us. The sphere started to slowly move west across the road. It kept an altitude relative to the slope of the hillside covered with houses, as this area is heavily populated. It moved slowly out over Lake Washington. When it was a few hundred feet out over the lake, it again stopped and hovered for a few seconds.

At arms distance the size of the object was relative to the size of a basketball. The color was about the same as the blue of propane or natural gas when burning. It made absolutely no sound.

At this time my wife was witnessing the event as well as I was. Then suddenly the sphere slightly expanded and then rapidly shrank into a pin sized dot that lasted for a second or two, as it vanished with incredible speed to the North, almost as if it just disappeared.

We were both speechless for a few seconds and then we verified with each other that we both saw what we saw and could not put any logical explanation forth to name this as a natural earthly happening.

I no longer feel like I need to suppress my feeling about what we saw that early morning. I know I have seen something like all of the others that have reported seeing something similar. Unless there is a great secret, being well hidden from the masses, what we have witnessed is not from this planet.
