The witness was working near the top of Columbia Tower at 6:30 p.m. on July 23, 2018.
“Several tourists, myself and the bartender saw a blue thing rise up from either Ballard or Magnolia heading south, split into two pieces, rise up over the water and merge back together again,” the witness stated. “It kind of looked like it was tumbling upwards up until it merged again. It went towards SeaTac and then after a while we couldn’t see it anymore. I told the tourists it was probably a giant thing of blue balloons, but it honestly could have been anything. I was a little freaked out by it, thought it was a nearby drone at first as it came up, but then it split into two pieces and it was a lot farther away than I initially thought. I watched it until it was very high and probably past SeaTac airport, then I couldn’t see it anymore. I lost track of it a few times, but found it again pretty easily until it got too small for me to see. It was also blue, so it blended in a bit with the sky, there was a bit of a black outline though. I was working so I was unable to take a photo of it.”
Washington MUFON Field Investigator Anthony Nugent closed this case as an Unknown-Other.
