Description: I have never seen anything like this in my entire life. I actually feel silly reporting this, but I swear on everything my husband and I saw a UFO last night. It was a very bright light high in the sky oh I would say around 12:30 to 1 AM. The light moved in all sorts of crazy directions up, down, it hovered and when it did move it wasn't in perfectly straight lines. It was bouncing almost so to speak and we stayed up until almost 4 AM watching this. Other strange lights appeared below it at times too. It was the weirdest, scariest crap I have ever seen in my entire life. And NO its not an April fools joke. I am just wondering if anyone else around here saw the same thing.

Additional Information Provided by Witness: No, there was no sound at all and the sky was clear which isn't always the case on the coast here. The only time we really ever lost sight of the light was when a tree got in our way of the view. We also saw (and I sound crazy I can't believe I am doing this): The orbs of lights two for example through the woods as we were looking at the main light in the sky. It was almost as if the light in the sky was directing the lights that seemed to be in the woods. I guess that is what it seemed like. The lights "orbed around" came closer towards us at times and then back out again. That is when I got scared and finally shut the window and tried not to stare out . My husband however went outside and got closer looks at what what we were seeing. He also flashed his flash light at the orbs and I swear it seemed as if we were being watched. I know I sound silly but I swear to GOD we saw all of this and there is no explanation for any of it. There is just woods around our home no neighbors live anywhere in our view.

Comments: Whew this witness sounds emotional and quite frightened. I have had several communications with her since her original report. She sounds credible and quite sincere about the experience. UFOs Northwest has had a few reports in the past few years of a similar nature. (People report encounters with orbs that appear intelligent or under intelligent control.)

The witness also stated that she and her husband had a close encounter with unknown humanoid creatures that "glowed in the dark" in the same area a few years ago. This is the first time that she has reported this experience. More details about this encounter will be posted when received.
