Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 5 minutes
Observed motionless black sphere in sky.

What I saw Thursday 17 June 2010 at approx 8:50 pm appeared to be a suspended black sphere of unknown size. It looked to be about 800 to 1000 feet or so in the air. I watched it from the corner of 2nd Ave W and Roy St, looking up towards the broadcast towers atop Queen Anne hill to the north.

Myself and a few other street people watched it hover, motionless for about 3 or 4 minutes. I then rushed home a block away to get my high resolution digital camera, but the object was gone by the time I returned.

There were 4 other people who witnessed the mysterious orb.... It was hard to judge the size of the object. It was black, motionless and seemed to just hang there beneath what appeared to be relatively low clouds. It did not have the visible stems, or gradual flight trajectory you normally might see with weather balloons at a relatively close range.
