Sighting Reports 2011

Large Burnt Orange Object Floats Behind Building

Date of Sighting: July 12, 2011
Time of Sighting: 2:30 to 2:40 AM PDT
Location of Sighting: Downtown Seattle, Washington

Description: Over downtown Seattle from the west, my girlfriend looked out the window and said "is that the moon?" I looked and we saw a very bright, huge, glowing burnt orange orb floating behind the building of downtown Seattle. This object, was as large as the sun, but did not illuminate the sky. It gently descended behind the buildings until it was out of sight, over Puget Sound. Realizing the position of the moon is always directly above us and the skies were cloudy from our viewpoint, until the clouds broke to the west allowing us to view said object.

Note: The moon was 93% illuminated (nearly full) and set in southwest at 2:45 AM PDT in Seattle. Skies were low overcast, but there likely were some breaks in the clouds. The witnesses saw a setting moon.
