Duration: 15 seconds
No of observers: 1
Location: Coupeville, WA, USA
Characteristics: Left a trail
I was sitting on a bed in a house which had windows all along the backside of the house facing north. These windows had a view of an inlet (Penn Cove) which is in coupeville. As I was looking out of the windows an orange/red globe shaped object appeared over the trees on the other side of the inlet. It was approaching at a fairly rapid speed. I can't estimate the elevation but it didn't appear to me to that high. It appeared as large as the moon in the sky. It was quite bright but not painful to look at. The light appeared to look like some kind of plasma or liquid light. Trailing behind were three rings which decreased in size the farther they where from the ufo. The rings were barely perceptible and shimmered. The rings always maintained their their absolute distance from the ball and from one another. I want to stress that these rings were very faint. I barely noticed them. The object itself had a very sharp outline despite being extremely bright. It cat a glow on the water as it passed over the cove. I called to the woman I was staying with (she was in the bathroom) The object was on a trajectory directly over the house and I ran out the front door in time to see it go directly overhead and disappear from view due to the pine trees. There was no sound. My host didn't see it and was quite skeptical.
Date is approximate. PD
