National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report

Reported: 3/8/1997 03:59
Posted: 3/7/1998
Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Flash
Duration: 1 sec
Summary : Less than a 1 second flash of large blue-white light, climbing slightly on it's path from west to east. .

I was traveling N. on Beall Rd. on Vashon Island when I saw a large blue-white light, larger than jet lights (common here), move from low left to 30 degrees higher toward the right (East). Very fast. Thought, "Is this that comet?" But I don't think the comet is that huge or fast.

Doubt that this was a shooting star. Trees obscured the progression path from my vision.
