Location: Seattle, Washington, United States
triangular craft was moving across the sky above us at
an altitude similar to airplanes in this part of the city
(near Boeing field, not far from SeaTac Airport). It had
a light at each of the points that was a dim orange and
the lights seemed striped rather than solid. The craft
was completely silent... We realized that [our dog] was
trembling and then he became lethargic and lost his balance.'

triangular craft sighted over West Seattle.
husband and I were walking into our house from the car
and something caught my peripheral vision. I looked up
and said something like "What the hell is that?"
A triangular craft was moving across the sky above us
at an altitude similar to airplanes in this part of the
city (near Boeing field, not far from SeaTac Airport).
It had a light at each of the points that was a dim orange
and the lights seemed striped rather than solid. The craft
was completely silent. We watched it fly in a northeasterly
direction until it encountered the city light reflection
in the sky and we could no longer see it. Our dog had
been in our front yard while we were away for about four
hours. When we got inside, we realized that he was trembling
and then he became lethargic and lost his balance. He
seems to have regained his balance and some of his energy
this next morning after the sighting."
Note: We spoke with this witness at length, and she seemed
to us to be an exceptionally reliable witness. Please
see other report for the same time and date over the area
of West Seattle, which also apparently involves the restlessness
of a dog. PD))
#1 FROM WITNESS))
husband got home late and is already gone this morning
back to work. He hasn't filled out a report yet. I have
done an MS Paint document of his recollection of the wing
that I am attaching. Again, it is my re-draw of a small
sketch he made as he was running out the door. I recall
big, round lights, while he recalls trapezium-shaped lights
and wings. I recall the round lights, as I said, and drew
the wings as round, although I'm not sure they too were.
They were definitely not pointed, we both recall (the
corners were blunt or rounded).
were no lights on the aircraft other than the three point
think the aircraft was black, but the sky was very dark.
We could see the outline of the aircraft clearly. It appeared
to be much lower than cruising altitude and appeared large
compared to the stars, but not noticeably larger than
any aircraft I am aware of (in other words, its size did
not stand out). We live close to Boeing field and somewhat
near the approach to SeaTac, so we have become accustomed
to the altitudes planes are typically at as they pass
by our home, whether taking off or landing. Thank you."

the lights, they were not blinking. They were a dim orange.
The stars were white and extremely bright compared to
the three lights on the aircraft. They were noticeably
dimmer and more matte, if that word makes sense in this
context. It was kind of a glow, but without illumination."
