Damnit. It seems I miss all the good stuff when I'm Away from home.
I was just talking to my mother on the phone. She lives in south Everett, Washington, about 20 minutes north of Seattle. She told me about an
extremely weird even that happened in the early morning hours of August 1.
It was about 4:30 in the morning, and my mom and a friend were on the back porch smoking a cigarette. The back porch is also where we feed the local
raccoons. The raccoon clan was there, as usual, chowing down on some cat food set out for them, and my mom and her friend were watching. My mother was
gazing towards the east. All of the sudden, an object appeared, a huge object she said look about the size of a diesel truck. It was brighter than the
brightest halogen lights. It shot straight down and disappeared from view behind some apartments, although it was not that close. It went straight
down. It passed in utter silence.
Both my mom and her friend were freaked out. They couldnt believe what they saw. It was not a meteor or something like that. My moms friend decided to
call the local news channel to report what she saw. (She did not think reporting it to the police would be helpful, and having no ties or knowldge of
ufology in general, figured the media might be the best place to report it).
It turns out that the main area of sighting was Smokey Point, a town a bit more north east of Everett. It seems that many residents saw the thing, and
several police officers as well. The local news station was getting tons of calls about it.
So my mom was still outside while her friend called. Suddenly, she saw the object rise from where it seems to have gone down, shoot right back up and
into the sky, where it vanished.
Also, my mom reported to me that when the object came down, the raccoons, who were feasting as normal, suddenly became frightened and they all went
scrambling like mad, running away. Mind you, there was no sound associated with the object, and the raccoons, who come to our porch every night and
are used to the lights coming on, were suddenly terrified by this object, and they actually ran and were making weird noises as they ran. My mom also
said that my cats became very startled and nervous as well.
So, have any members here who live in Western Washington seen this thing? Or does anyone know what it is?
