Date of Sighting: January 7, 2008
Time of Sighting: 4:30 PM PST
Date Sighting Reported: January 11, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 3 Seconds
Location of Sighting: Northbound I-5 Near Nisqually Exit (Olympia, Washington)
Latitude: 47.08 Degrees North
Longitude: 122.67 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Few Clouds at 2,000 Feet, Scattered Clouds at 5,500 Feet, and Broken Cloud at 8,000 Feet. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the South at 5 MPH.

Description: While Driving On I-5 northbound something caught my attention. I noticed a grey colored oval shaped object streak across the freeway in front of me. It was about 300 feet above the road way. It's size was approximately 100 feet long and 25 feet high. The speed was very fast. I lost sight of it when it went behind a hill/ridge to the right of me. It was just getting dark and I saw no beacon lights on it. I really don't know what it was. I sped up to get off at the next exit. After I exited the freeway I noticed an army helicopter in the area, but I could not see the object.

Comments: The witness has reported an oval shaped object grey in color. Objects similar in shape and color have been seen for over 60 years and remain unidentified. The interesting aspect of this sighting is that it occurred during rush hour traffic on a very high traffic volume highway. Many others must have seen this object considering that it passed low over the freeway. Also the sighting occurred in close proximity to an Air Force and Army Base. (See map above.)
