Time of Sighting: 8:30 PM PDT
Date Sighting Reported: September 27, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 5 Seconds
Location of Sighting: Grandview, Washington (SE Washington About 60 MI SE of Yakima)
Latitude: 46.26 Degrees North
Longitude: 119.91 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: At Least Two.
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One

Description: The sighting was in southeastern Washington at approximately 8:30 PM. I saw a low flying bright egg shaped object with no tail. It was about the size of a planet in the sky. I heard no sound whatsoever. The object was flying the opposite direction directly below a commercial jet (which we could hear). We saw this sighting at the exact same time yesterday (9/26/08). It was flying northbound, from the Big Dipper towards Cassiopeia. In a matter of about 5 seconds the bright light dissipated into nothing (before it reached Cassiopeia).

Comments: The witness sighted the International Space Station (ISS). The ISS was visible in the area, position and at the time of the witness sighting. The direction of movement observed by the witness was also consistent with the flight of the ISS. The ISS was also visible in the same area on the previous night. (The witness said that he saw the same object on the previous night.)
