Unknown Object Photographed Over Mt St Helens.

Location of Sighting: Mt St. Helens, Washington
Date of Sighting: July 16, 2017
Time of Sighting: 11:45 AM PDT



Description: I thought that you might be interested in this photo. I took it today 7/16/17 around 11:45 AM at a view point turn off on the way up to the Mt. St. Helen’s observatory. I didn’t realize I captured it until I uploaded my photos to my computer. There weren’t any birds flying at that time, helicopters or airplanes that I remember so I am not sure what it is. It is not something on my lens since the pictures I took before and after don’t have the spot on it. This photo is completely unedited. I didn’t mess with the contrast or anything.

Note: The object could be an insect, but this is speculation.

    I observed an unidentified phenomenon on and over Mt. St. Helens while working several years ago. My vantage point was from the Swift dam which give an unobstructed view of the south side of the mountain. It was around 1:00 AM when I noticed a light that was a bluish green moving up and down and across the face of the mountain exhibiting odd behavior. My first instinct was that there was a snowmobile on the Mt. which is prohibited at night. After watching for awhile it appeared to stop remaining stationary about half way to the summit. I then hit my vehicle light bar and got out a high powered spotlight and flashed at the object. The light went out for around thirty seconds and then flashed several times. I flashed my light back and the light flashed back in return. This went on for several minutes at which time I reported to Headquarters that I thought we possibly had a snowmobile on the mountain and possibly it had broken down as it had not moved since flashing at me. I requested the mountain patrol and rescue be dispatched to investigate. I had been watching the phenomena for over an hour when it began moving erratically over the mountain again again. It then shot straight up into the air and hovered at what I estimate around 500 feet or more directly over the mountain. It continued to pulse for another few minutes and then appeared to wink out, like the little dot on an old tube TV when turned off. It may have shot away until it was out of sight, but just seemed to disappear. I did not report to my headquarters what I had seen (would sound nuts) and I let the search and rescue do their thing which turned up nothing unusual on the mountain. I don’t know what I saw and wondered if possibly they were “earth lights,” but that’s the only time I saw this during the thousand of hours spent working around the mountain.

    A bird is the most logical explanation. I am not sure how the photographer would know there weren’t any birds flying? It appears to be at a distance, so it could have easily escaped detection.
