The witness was outside “enjoying the beautiful orange cast of a colorful sunset” at 8:30 p.m. on May 25, 2018.
“The tree line starts 200 to 400 yards away,” the witness stated. “I was seated on my deck facing east. A quiet time since there is very little traffic on our road and the birds were settling in for night. A fast-moving object caught my eye above the trees headed directly west into the sun. It was a beautiful brown metallic structure. The intensity of sunlight made it shine and revealed shadows indicating layers of metal. It was submarine-shaped only with sharper, rectangular edges defining its exterior. It did not have an intake opening for jet engine. It did not have a propeller. It made no noise. Silent and fast.”
The witness did not have time to grab a camera.
“My cellphone was in the house as I like to enjoy nature without electronics. Just prior to this siting a bald eagle flew directly over the open part of the yard heading northeast almost at eye level since our house is on an elevated part of the property. This was the first UFO sighting of my life of 63 years.The naval base at Keyport, WA was lowering their flag just prior to the sighting. The retreat music is heard during this time throughout the neighborhood. Afterward I felt that I had been visited by an old friend now deceased. He was a retired submariner.”
Washington MUFON State Section Director Zach Royer closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
