Description (In Witness's Own Words): Hi, I live in Bellevue, WA. I just wanted to know if anyone else has seen a rectangle high in the sky. This was a summer day and I was traveling north on I-405. I took the N.E. 70th exit which drops down into Kirkland. While I was traveling west across the overpass I looked up in the sky and that is when I saw the triangle. It was eerie looking. It was just north of downtown Seattle maybe 500 feet in an hanging there close to the Commercial airplane take-off path. The planes were taking off to the north that day. I thought it was so obvious in the sky that someone would have seen it for a longer time than I did and perhaps report it to some news agency. Unfortunately for me as I was driving west across the overpass and the street begins to descend and then the trees blocked my view. I couldn't stop due to the amount of traffic behind me. This is not a hoax. The size of the rectangle was hard to determine due to it's distance away but about the same time a commercial plane was starting to climb up the flight path and it looked to me that the rectangle would be big enough for the plane to fly through it. I told this story to my son, who was about 35 at the time, by the way, this happened in 2006 and he said one time when he was in high school in Federal Way and he saw the same thing.

Investigator's Notes: We have received another report from Kirkland, Washington for a sighting that occurred in July of 2006. This sighting was described as a rectangular object (specifically referred to as a "flying cinder block." A second independent witness read the report and said that the cinder block was a large advertising banner pulled behind an aircraft. Click here to read the July, 2006 report. I suspect that the sighting described above (reported on October 26, 2007) was probably of the same object. This can't be concluded for sure because the dates and times of all of the reports are not known. Another confusing detail is that the witness in one case referred to the object as a "triangle." In all other references he said that the object was a rectangle so the "triangle" reference was probably a typo. The witness has not yet responded to additional questions. Any updates will be posted.
