large white lighted craft viewed over seattle, wa

On thursday evening at around 8:00 PM my boyfriend and I went out on his back deck to have a cigarette. The sun was setting so I was staring at the horizon enjoying the evening.

I saw what appeared to be a very large star on the southwest horizon. I pointed it out to my boyfriend who said it seemed too large to be a star. We considered it might be a plane, though the light was consistently a glaring white and it appeared to be stationary. We also discussed the possibility that it was Venus, though it was still light enough outside I didn't believe Venus could shine that brightly.

We watched the object for almost 10 minutes, the light never varied in intensity, it didn't appear to move, and slowly my boyfriend lost interest. He turned away from the edge of his deck to face me. As he turned around, the object made a swift and increadibly unexpexted swoop to the north. Flying faster than any commercial aircraft I've ever seen, the object vanished behind trees to the north within seconds. There appeared to be solid red lights on the object from this angle. I caught my boyfriend's attention just in time for him to catch the object's departure.

We were both amazed and shocked by what we had witnessed.


Witness indicates that date is approximate. PD
