Date of Sighting: October 11, 2009
Time of Sighting: 6:07 PM PDT
Location of Sighting: Tacoma, Washington - Near McChord AFB (See Map)

Description: We were near McChord Air Force Base (AFB) on the I-5 freeway southbound above the overpass bridge, just south of the 512 Puyallup exit about 1 mile.

Shape: Take a coffee cup shape pinch it closed at one end, so straight edge, leaving opening on other end.

Color: Brownish Black

Lights: Within open circle end, 3 lights in triangular formation. The lights were not super bright, but were on.

Size: At least half car size or larger based on how far up it was yet how big it appeared

Direction: Up

Motion: It seemed like it was swinging, like as if on a cable, but that is the thing there were no cables, nothing it could be suspended from. (Trees were too far away.) It sat at just tree line height and was rising.

My camera was not accessible when driving so we turned around and went back, but it was gone. My friend who kept watching as I was driving and could see it continue to rise up.

We could not understand how it was able to go up, what was propelling it, with 3 lit lights (power source?). If did not appear manmade given that the closed end was narrow not like a hot air balloon.

Friends say they used to do that with helium on garbage bags when kids, but that does not explain then how do you suspend 3 lights from a garbage bag and have it hold its shape? No, the material was not a garbage bag, it had to be sturdy.

Note: The witness has provided a very explicit description of her sighting. Given the drawing and description I have no explanation for what was sighted.
