National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 1/21/2002 23:35 (Entered as : 01-21-02 11:35 pm)
Reported: 1/23/2002 1:51:56 PM 13:51
Posted: 1/29/2002
Location: Kirkland, WA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: The object changed color
A circular ball of extremely bright white and red light was sighted moving from southeast to northwest at a rapid rate of speed. Object was just above tree top level and seemed to undulate (kind of like jello) with the white and then the red light dominating in color. The object was in a downward trajectory as though it would enter Lake Washington if it continued it's downward movement. There was no sound that I could discern from the object even though I was inside. We can usually hear an aircraft even from indoors here in our area.

The light was far brighter than any aircraft lights or helicopter lights, and was much larger. It also did not follow the usual aircraft flight patterns that are the norm for this area.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness and found her to be quite convincing in her description of the event. PD))
