Location of Sighting: Spokane Valley (Spokane, Washington)
Date of Sighting: November 8, 2016
Time of Sighting: 3:31 PM PST
Description: Hello: S. M. (name redacted) here. Enjoy the pictures that I took with my mini I-Pad while being driven to a hike. We were visiting from Washington, DC.
More Details Sent by Witness: I was in Spokane from 11/5- 11/9. I’m a part of a nutrition bar business team. We were in Spokane on business. I’m familiar with the NW. I’m from the suburbs of Washington DC, yet I have traveled a lot . I have lived in Fort Collins, Colorado and Santa Cruz, CA in the early to mid 1990’s. I have traveled through Missoula, Montana before. Being in Spokane was a refreshing break.
We were being driven to see some outdoor spots (Riverside, Liberty Lake). We were on a tight schedule so we didn’t go on any major hikes or excursions. In the past I have always driven and had a car. In this instance I was a passenger in the back passenger side. We were driving to liberty lake from an industrial area. I took a bunch of random pictures. The window was down. It was rather warm in early November there. It was at least 60 degrees. I like taking pictures of mountain ranges, trees etc. I can send you the 6 or 7 pics I took before seeing what looked like a cloud formation that was forming a cross. It was kind of neat. We came to a stop at a traffic signal. I took that picture of interest. It wasn’t until I looked at the pictures later, zoomed in and saw the particular anomaly or object (the downward, North – South of the ” cross ” formation). The East – West portion being a cloud. It’s odd. My mind wants to say it’s a radio array or antenna of sorts. Yet it’s just odd. I wasn’t driving so I couldn’t steer towards the object and drive to it. I didn’t even say anything about it. Yet I would have driven towards it if I could have just to see what it was. The top part is odd. It looks like a contrail, more solid as it goes downward. The object is behind the power lines, so that told me that it’s not a camera fractal/ glitch? It’s not the the visible road sign divided into two as a camera glitch may do. I don’t know. It’s interesting. I have seen objects in the sky that were definitive in other worldly or advanced/unknown technologies (here in the Potomac, DC suburb area, region. 11/89 to be exact). This was a completely different situation and shape of object.
Note: The object could be a ground-based vertical structure crisscrossed by an aircraft contrail.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
