Description (In Witness's Own Words): Listen to Recording of Phone Interview
I am active Duty Navy. I was outside on pier taking smoke break, next to the USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74)Aircraft Carrier. I look up and notice a yellowish/white ball slowly moving thru the air with no sound. Object slowed down while passing directly overhead of Aircraft Carrier around 1/4 mile above - then slowly accelerated and flew off . Object came from the west, and continued to head due East in the direction north of Seattle. "anyone else seen this one?" Because me and a few guys did.

Phone Interview: The witness said that the light seemed to pause when directly overhead of the aircraft carrier as if it were looking for something. The object then moved eastward towards the Seattle area. No other air traffic was reported in the area at the time.

Investigator's Notes: Three active military personnel observed the light while on active duty aboard an aircraft carrier that "is combat ready." The behavior of the light does not fit any conventional explanation like meteors, hot air balloons, helicopters, etc. I consider this sighting to be unidentified. The doppler radar image above does not reveal anything unusual. (Doppler radar is not configured to detect aircraft. It is calibrated to detect weather phenomena.)
