NUFORC Sighting 3479

Occurred: 1998-04-22 21:23 Local
Reported: 1998-04-23 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 2 seconds
No of observers: 1

Location: Bangor Submarine Base (Olympic Penninsula), WA, USA

Shape: Disk
Characteristics: Lights on object

Entire bottom of disk was glowing except for center circular area approximately 30% of the diameter. Total diameter approx 100 feet. Object 300-400 feet off ground moving slowly & silently directly over Bangor Submarine Base. Distance from me approx 3/4 mile.

The glow on the bottom of disk was totally white... (no colors). I seemed to be seeing only the bottom of the disk. Later during same evening (11:15 newscast) on Seattle Television (King 5) there were reports of strange green flashes of light in the sky at 9:15 pm to the west of Seattle. This was approximately the same time... yet I saw no flashes ... only the disk. There was no sound from the disk. It did appear to be descending slightly as it moved from a northerly to a south-westerly direction across Bangor Submarine Base. I was the only observer in my household.

I am 54 years old and a Information Systems analyst with Electronic Data Systems in Poulsbo, and am also a retired government (U.S. Navy) computer analyst.


This witness is very well known to NUFORC, and we consider him to be an exceptional witness. Please see other reports about the same incident. PD
