Location: Snohomish, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 secs
very fast white light seen, no noise present

My husband and I went out to share a cigarette. While my husband was playing with our dog, I looked up at the sky and noticed a bright light behind our house and thought, "That looks odd", then suddenly it took off. As it was flying away I was yelling at my husband "Oh my god, are you seeing that?" He turned around and said, "What?" and it was gone.

It flew towards the ground and Southeast into Everett, Wa. It was a large bright round light and made no noise. It was extremely fast and it was not a shooting star, nor a standard aircraft. We live near the small airport in Snohomish, WA, so we see and hear airplanes all the time. A few minutes after seeing the bright light, a small aircraft flew over and was at a much higher altitude. I was excited and slightly nervous after seeing this, as it was rather close to our home.

On the same day, around 4:30pm in the afternoon we were driving from Bellingham, Wa. As we were getting into Snohomish, Wa, near the Ebey Slough I noticed an object in the sky. It was not moving and as I was telling my husband, "Look! I think there is a UFO in the sky" and it blinked out. He couldn't really stare at the sky as he was driving. There were no clouds in the sky, so I kept looking as we were driving on the road, but saw nothing.. not even an aircraft. Not sure if they're both related, but wanted to add this to see if anyone out there saw the same thing I did.
