Birch Bay Craft Observed by Young Girls

I was about 8 years old,my friend and I, the same age as myself, were staying at her grandparents summer home in Birch Bay, Washington. It was late evening, everyone was in bed. In my friend's room we were up late talking and giggling,trying not to wake anyone-or get in trouble.

I sat up in bed to look out the window. I had this strange feeling. I looked in the yard -nothing. I looked up, and there, to my left, above the trees was a ufo. This was what I remember; the craft was hovering, not too high, at an angle. The side closest to the ocean tilted slightly down. The house itself was three blocks from the water, and the craft appeared to be just a bit closer than that. It was saucer like, fat in the middle, and I remember thinking how it looked very sleek. The moonlight reflected off the craft, illuminating it's shape. It might even have been a full moon that night which inspired me to look out the window.

The craft had lights (round) encircling it. They would seemilngly rotate around the craft, changing colors on the way back around. I remember seeing blue and red, aswell as orange.

I casually told my friend there was a ufo outside, to impress her with my blase attitude. She didn't believe me at first, but then she saw it. We sat in her bed for a while staring at it. W e thought about waking her grandparents, we joked about very tiny green men marching in the house if we didn't wake them. My friend went to sleep shortly afterward. I would occasionaly check to make sure the craft was still there:it was reassuring. The next thing I remember is realizing I had fallen asleep. I sat up in bed and looked out the window again but,the craft was gone.
