Date of Sighting: May 24, 2009
Time of Sighting: 3:15 PM PDT
Location of Sighting: On I-82 Highway Near Yakima, Washington

Description: I was randomly taking pictures over a ridge in Yakima (actually just outside the city). I had just left my mom's to go back to Seattle. In this area, there is a "Military Base" as you ascend I-82 that seems completely invisible. There is never any activity going to and from the freeway exit to this base - you never see people, military aircraft or any vehicles. This area is highly suspicious for UFO sightings and is considered a "hotspot". I was taking pictures of my boyfriend's white truck ahead of me (both of us drove separate to and from Yakima that weekend) and for some reason, I decided to take pictures as we went over this ridge, but just past the military sign. I was not thinking of anything in particular as I had my boyfriend's son with me in the car and we were just messing around with the camera. This UFO was not visible until after the picture was taken and I was viewing pictures later that evening. The first picture was taken from inside my car through the windshield and the 2nd was taken outside of my sunroof. This UFO is right above the military base area.

Note: The first photo is shown above along with an enlargement of the white mass. The enclargement appears to me to be some sort of cloud formation. The cloud is likely quite high and probably composed of ice crystals.
