Description: I was standing on my deck and looking from the Ballard area (Seattle) near the Ballard Bridge looking over the top of the Queen Ann Hills. It was just at dawn this morning 7/21/08 around 5:00AM. I saw a dot of light that moved with extreme speed from my vantage point coming from the Southwest. The light stopped on a dime from a high speed to a complete stop. I would have no way of determining how far it was, but it was very faint and appeared to be over the SeaTac airport area as I could see the lights of aircraft in a normal fashion landing or taking off almost as faint, but this was not an aircraft due to the extreme speed and movement patterns. The dot of light as it moved, continued to move at a very high rate of speed right to left at two or three points moving up and back to what appeared to be exactly where it originally arrived from the original approach. I noticed that it moved West to East South of my position. It continued to dart rapidly in what appeared to be a fixed trajectory moving extremely fast between two reference points that I used which were tree tops in the Queen Ann area (a hill approximately at it's top elevation of around 500 feet). Again the object was certainly off at least 10 miles south of those reference points. I called my friend to observe it when I first noticed it and they had never seen a UFO before. The friend concurred that in their mind, it was not a plane, jet, helicopter, group of aircraft such as military jets, shooting star, meteor or any other object because of the fast darting between the points. The object over approximately 5 minutes would also vanish as if the lights went off and then either reappear at the same place or another place and it darted back to a similar position horizontal, and the 2 or 3 times it elevated it was almost as if it move the same distance upward from it horizontal point position as if to coordinate the distance once in place from the original west to east position. At the time I saw it move into it's position and would travel what appeared the same space left to right or (East to West) and up back down to the original line of entry left to right. About 5 minutes after it appeared it then moved quickly away at an upwardly 30 to 45 degree fashion towards the west from where it originally appeared. It then shot off into the upper levels of space at a very high rate of speed. I would suggest that each movement was not longer than 1/2 to 1/4 of a second for each movement to a complete stop.

Comments: The witness has provided a quite lengthy report of his experience. His observations suggest that he saw an object execute unusual aerial maneuvers. It is not known how many witnesses saw the object because the witness refers to his friend in the "plural."
