Description: Subject: 2/15/13, 7:15 -7:30 PM. Metallic Blue object seen over over Anacortes, WA. Friday night I saw a blue metallic colored (like a Christmas tree ornament) round shaped object over the city of Anacortes between 7:15 and 7:30 PM. I was driving on Guemes Island toward the Ferry dock facing east at the top of the hill with a good view of the City of Anacortes. At the time I saw the object the night time sky was clear, visibility good, it was completely dark out, and the moon was 35% visible. The object was coming straight down from above and made a hard right without slowing in speed over the city of Anacortes in an L shaped pattern and shot south toward Seattle. It appeared to be moving at super sonic speeds. This area has a lot of air traffic and this object moved much faster than any airplane I have seen. The object was small, round and bright, about a 1/5 the size of a moon and at the point it turned it appeared to be lower than the normal low bank of clouds except that the sky was clear. I called KIRO Channel 7 News in Seattle and reported seeing this object. They called me back an hour later reporting that their sister station in San Francisco was reporting something similar at about 7:45 PM. This was about 15 minutes after I saw my object.
Note: Some news outlets mentioned a sighting of a bright object in the San Francisco and Sacramento areas on Friday night. Apparently some video footage had been taken. The news broadcast that I heard said that no explanation had been made for the sighting. It is not known if these sightings are related to the sighting in Anacortes. A check of the American Meteor Society web site (http://www.amsmeteors.org) showed meteor sightings in San Francisco and Livermore, CA on Feb. 15, 2013, but the sightings were earlier than the Anacortes sighting.
