About half an hour ago i spotted a UFO while i was out having a cigarette. I didnt take a picture because all I saw was a dot flying around in the sky. At first, I thought it was a plane, but then i saw it turn to the right, STOP, and go back the other direction. An impossible maneuver for any man made craft as far as i know. and then i watched it fly around for about 10 min. or so, until it literally just disappears from my sight.
Now im not posting this because I'm trying to get attention, im simply doing it because I think people need to know that this is becoming a more increasingly happening phenomenon. I'm sorry I don't have any more information, but it was pretty much a simple (boring) sighting...but a sighting none the less

Please describe with a little more detail. Did the object look solid, or was it 'shimmery' (for lack of a better word). At what height would you estimate it? Was there any cloud cover? If so, did the object interact with the clouds in any way? Was there any other air traffic before, during, or afterwards?
I ask because I've noticed similar things on three occasions and am fascinated with the phenomenon. Look forward to your reply, Gram.

Is that the first one you have seen in Olympia? I ask because I live in the area myself (about 3 blocks from Evergreen) and I look for them frequently but have never seen one.

Are you sure it wasn't a military jet? I ask because we just hosted the Annual Airshow across your border in Abbotsford, BC. Alot of them may be flying home and all kinds of aircarft came to the show, that we don't usually see in our skies.
I went to it on Sunday, and indeed these jets have amazing manoevers(sp?). Some of them fly faster than the speed of sound, so by the time you hear them breaking the sound barrier, they've gone past. I also noted that at certain points they couldn't be heard, yet they're still visible. They flew sideways, upside down, tilted up with the nose of the jet pointed skyward, making sharp turns, freefalling, etc. There were also some black helicopters patrolling. In fact as I type this many of the aircraft are flying over my house. I'm located close to the US border, I can see Mount Baker in washington state. Anyways, gonna go check them out, because they're such an awesome sight!
