I would like to add an additional sighting to the red object sighted at Puget Sound, as noted below. I was not able to capture a photo, but when I saw the one provided at Puget Sound, I realized that it was the same object.
I have seen this object on several occasions for the past year, always in the early morning. But, there are always two of the objects; one followed a moment or two after the first.
Until this morning, they always appeared as an almost pinpoint circular object traveling at a high rate of speed, with approximately an inch-wide (from my vantage point) vapor trail.
Hills and mountains surround me. The direction of the first object is from the Southern sky traveling North West. The second object comes from a bit more South West direction, heading North West also, with the same width vapor trail.
My daughter, niece, and grandson have witnessed these sightings and it was during the summer months.
For the past few days, the dogs in our neighborhood have been howling late at night and in the early morning hours. Late last night when they howled, I ignored the dogs as usual. This morning their howling woke me up. I went to the bathroom, came back and noticed the moonlight in my room. I went to the window to look at the full moon.
It was 5:22 am and I saw a vapor trail traveling from the North Western sky. I was looking out of my North West window that is facing a bright full moon. The moon was at a 45-degree angle from the horizon. Visibility was 3 miles. The stars were brilliant. Our altitude in Mountain House is 160 feet.
I witnessed the object from my loft space, which is approximately 20 feet high. The object was traveling this time from North West heading in a Southern direction and it was only when it traveled in front of the moon that I could see that it was a RED fiery circular object.
When it left the light of the moon, it appeared as a pinpoint circular object again. The sound that it made was high pitch and similar to a vacuum cleaner whirring, unlike commercial aircraft or jets engines. It appeared to be traveling from the horizon up into the sky.
I went outside and saw the object continuing it’s Southern path. I couldn’t hear the sound anymore because it was traveling higher in the sky.
As with the Pugent Sound sighting, there has been increased helicopter activity over this tiny community, often in pairs searching in the exact location where we’ve seen the UFOs.
I believe these objects to be unlike any aircraft that is known and I respectfully submit this sighting as being genuine in nature.
Thank you for the opportunity to share this experience.
============================== PUGET SOUND, WASHINGTON STATE, MONDAY, MAR 5 2007 AT 19:15 HRS The National UFO Reporting Center received three reports of a peculiar, red object, which was observed from multiple points on the western side of Puget Sound. One of the witnesses captured the object with her digital camera.
Full Report If there are other witnesses to the event, we would welcome more reports which include 1) the witness's location, 2) the direction the witness was looking, and 3) the angle of elevation (estimated) to the object, above the horizontal plane.
We do not know what the object was, but it almost certainly was not any type of conventional aircraft, and given the duration of the event, and the manner in which the object was seen to move across the sky, we doubt that the object was any type of pyrotechnic device.
