While walking in Woodland Park in Seattle, Washington, on July 4, 1947, I looked up and saw a bright white oval object come down .

On July 4, 1947, at about 5:30 PM or early twilight, I was walking in Woodland Park in Seattle, Washington, near the University of Washington. I was a 22 year old student at the time. The park overlooked Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountain Range to the west.

I happened to look up and saw a bright, oval-shaped object coming down from the upper atmosphere. There was no sound of motors. The object had no wings. The object made a very sharp almost 90-degree turn to the horizontal and then sped south along Puget Sound at high speed and towards Mt. St. Helens. I was very surprised.

At about the same time on July 4, 1947, a Seattle bus driver and U.S.Navy member saw similar objects over Seattle. On June 24, 1947, a light plane pilot and a prospector saw nine silvery flying saucers flying in line at high speed from north to south over nearby Mount Rainier and Mount Adams, Washington. On July 4, 1947, two airline pilots and a stewardess saw similar nine flying saucers flying from southeast to northwest from Boise, Idaho, towards Mount Rainier and Seattle.
