Posted: 8/15/2014
Location: Federal Way, WA
Shape: Disk
Duration:90 seconds
Slow speed with no attempt to cloak their presence or any apparant concern of being noticed.

Weather warm with light cloud cover. Laying out by the apartment complex pool. Saw two silver disks (basic, stereotypical craft with a slight dome on top) the size of a quarter held at arm's length flying parallel formation with a quarter sized gap between the two. No sound. Altitude no more than 3,000 feet. Clearly defined against the sky traveling southwest through the SeaTac landing/takeoff path over I-5 in the general direction of the Port of Tacoma/Bremerton.

The most outstanding aspect was that they were ‘meandering’ at the same speed as a Cessna 172 with absolutely no apparent concern about being seen. As if they were in their sky and those who saw them should consider them to be an ordinary, mundane event. There was no indication of how they were propelled, who was inside or where they were going.

I have been interested in the topic for over fifty years and my first response was ‘finally I saw some’ not ‘what were those?’ Being familiar with the subject I did a check down eliminating lanterns, floaters, small aircraft or any other object. Now whenever anyone asks if I thought flying saucers were real, I can answer in the affirmative without any hesitation.
