Reported: 4/1/1999 01:46
Posted: 4/26/1999
Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 1minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Huge triangular craft, white unblinkng light in each apex, center red strobing light that strobed slowly on and then slowly off (luminosity following a curve like the absolute value of a sin wave-like breathing) seen flying over Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley and Mt. Baker area.

At 11:45PM I was returning from a visit and driving along Lake Washington Blvd. headed north. I was about a mile south of the Pits when I looked up to the left and saw a slowly moving huge triangular craft with a white unblinking light in each apex and a red light centered in the middle slowly pulsing. The white lights illuminated the bottom of the craft which reflected a light grey triangular shape against the dark sky. The craft was clearly triangular. The craft was heading slightly east of north so I was expecting to be directly underneath it when I rounded the bend to the Pits, but instead, the craft was now seen to be heading hard west of north. It was so low that it disapeared over the small hill west and parallel to the Blvd. I went up over Mt. Baker and then Capital hill to try and catch it in the distance, but there were no objects-airplane or other-flying west or north west where it should have been. As an oddity, before I lost sight of it, I saw one horizontal dim white light beam cross over and above me in a west-east direction on two occasions just before it disapeared over the hill. This may or may not have been associated with the craft. My first impression was that I had been shot at with something and I jumped in the way someone would jump if you threw something at them, then I realized that the streak going overhead was a beam of light. I grew up in the area-I have never seen a triangular craft before. I have no idea what kind of plane is like this!
