Sighting Reports 2009

Large Bright Spinning Spherical Object Seen in Early Morning Sky

Date of Sighting: May 12, 2009
Time of Sighting: 5:15 AM PDT
Location of Sighting: Factoria, Washington (Suburb to East of Seattle)

Description: Today on my way to work I saw a light in the sky again. It was in the same general area as before. I was traveling south on I-405 at 5:15 AM and just before I rounded the first S-curve I saw a brightly lit object just above the tree line south of Factoria. This time the object was different in appearance and characteristics. It was a large sphere that was brightly lit on one side and it was rotating. As it rotated it gave the appearance of a blinking light. It was rotating at a speed of about 2 turns per second (fairly slow). It was about 150 feet off the ground and completely stationary. As I watched it I noticed there were two sets of two lights one set on each side that did not move or spin with the rest of the object, but the two sets of lights did blink or flicker in their own different pattern. The object did not change position the entire 15 to 20 seconds I watched it.

Note: If the witness's observations are accurate something quite unusual was observed. I-405 is a heavily traveled highway, but at 5:15 AM traffic would not be too heavy.
