Date of Sighting: January 17, 2011
Time of Sighting: 12:50 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Seattle, Washington (Boeing Field - See Map)

Description: I spoke to you a couple of months ago concerning a sighting I had of multiple objects near Boeing field, south of Seattle.  I wanted to let you know that recently I saw the same kind of object. I just saw one this time in the same area of the sky. I have attached some pictures to help explain what I saw.  I am hoping the addition of these graphics will allow someone to give me some more information on what exactly I saw. I got out my phone while I was witnessing this object, but it went into the clouds before I got a picture of it and it didn't come out again before I had to go back to work.  I am not certain my phone would have even captured the object in a photograph. Anyway   the object would probably have been too small in the sky to have been detectable by the camera sensor of my phone. It is not the best camera in the world.  I did take the picture which I used for these graphics right then though.  So this is what the sky looked like when I saw the object.

I was taking my afternoon break at work.  I like to walk around my building on breaks.  At 12:50 PM I rounded the corner of the building so that I was facing north.  This is where I was looking when I had my sighting of multiple objects in November.  Figure 1 (first graphic above) of the attached pictures shows you the direction I was looking and surrounding landmarks.  So I was walking north along the west side of my building and in the same part of the sky in which I saw the objects in November, I saw another object.  It was possibly one of the objects I saw before because it looked exactly like what I reported to you previously.   I don't know what to call it, except that it appeared to be a white ball. 

When I first noticed it, it seemed to be flying in a horizontal circular pattern in and out of the clouds.  It would come out of the clouds, loop around in a clockwise motion which would take it back into the cloud cover, at which point I would lose sight of it until it came out again. I have illustrated this in Figure 2. (See second graphic from top.)

As I was watching it flew some distance west from where I initially saw it.  I have illustrated this in Figure 3.  (See third graphic from above.) It took maybe 3 seconds to get from the first spot in the sky to the second spot at which time it stopped dead in the air not moving at all for several seconds, before flying back to its initial place in the sky.   It continued flying in and out of the clouds, emerging from the clouds less and less frequently until it stopped altogether.   The time frame of the entire sighting was about a minute although in that period of time I probably saw it for less than 20 seconds because I could only see it when it flew out from the clouds.

I would really like to know whether anyone else in the area saw the object or if you can tell me how high up it might have been and how fast it might have been moving when it flew to the west before stopping.   I apologize for not reporting my sighting that day, but it has been a busy hectic week and this was the first opportunity I have had to sit down and write up what I saw. 

Thank you again, and I look forward to hearing anything that can shed some light on this.

Note: I can't speculate on the identity of the object. If the object had ascended into the clouds and did not reappear, I would say that it could have been a balloon. (I don't know who would be launching balloons.) Also the witness said that the object changed direction. This indicates that it had it's own propulsion. If the object had moved in a certain direction, it could have been drifting with wind the wind. However, this was not the case as the object moved back and forth and not in a straight line. A check of weather conditions at Boeing Field showed that visibility was 10 miles and skies were overcast with cloud bases at 2,500 feet. Therefore we can say that the object was traveling near a height of 2,500 feet above ground. It was somewhat windy with wind gusts from the southeast at 20 MPH.
