A large, bright green was moving south. It was coming from the Ellensburg area. It was moving slow, stopped in mid air, then shot off at a high rate of speed eastward.

Being one mile from the local airport, we get alot of single engine crafts as well as helicopters from the military training center. so, light in the sky are nothing new. But, last night, myself with a few employees had seen a bright green light coming closer from the north. We thought it was another helicopter. The light was very bright. Bright than any helicopter would put out. The light grew bigger as it got closer. It passed overhead without a sound. When it got over the airport it stopped in mid air hovered for a few seconds and then turned direction. It shot off going in a eastward direction at a high rate of speed. I was out of eye-sight within a second. end of line.
