The witness was sitting outside on a deck watching storm clouds at 8:20 p.m. on June 20, 2018.
“A black ball appeared to the northeast at the base of a cloud,” the witness stated. “It remained for about 10 seconds and disappeared. It was very dark and had defined edges. Not like its surroundings. It didn't move that I could tell, just vanished. I estimate the size at that distance to be quite large, maybe 100-300 feet. I was not able to retrieve my phone in time to get a photo. I am prior military and law enforcement.”
Washington MUFON Chief Investigator Daniel Nims closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
