Five bright discs above Seattle, WA

U.F.O. Sighting Report I was staying at my great Uncle and Aunt’s home in the Ballard district of Seattle WA on an evening in the year 1947.

I was six years of age and was playing under the dining table, when suddenly there was an earthquake. My uncle yelled for everyone to get outside. Seven or eight of us then scurried out to the side of the old brick hotel.

As we stood there, someone yelled, “Look, flying discs, up in the sky!” We all looked up, and as I looked up to the sky, I saw five extremely bright round objects in a formation which I can describe as one resembling the discs on the flag of the Olympic games.

Even though I was only six years old at the time, I remember this sighting as if it were yesterday.

The lighted objects were very bright but were easy to look at without blurring, or hurting my eyes.

This memory has been with me for my whole life. My cousins, and Aunt and Uncle were saying it was flying discs, which later were referred to as U F O.s.

I do not recall the exact date, but it was not cold outside so my best guess is June or July.


Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
