Kodiak Island, Alaska Stationary Object Over Coast Guard Base
Date: September 8, 2004
Time: Between 2:00-3:00 p.m.
Dear Brian, I'm here on Kodiak island, Alaska. Yesterday we went river fishing for salmon nearby the Coast Guard base, COMSTA --Communications Station--and I lay on my back in the warm weather watching contrails from departing Anchorage jets flying SW towards Hawaii or the Philippines (?). Anyway, I noticed the SAME exact silvery dot maintaining a precise location in the sky while the contrails drifted and the lower clouds scurried over the mountain tops. I thought a weather balloon would drift, even a short distance in mild weather (It was almost windless) but I thought it peculiar anyway. It may well have been a weather balloon. Still, it was in the contrails and out but never moved anywhere across the sky. Too high for a tether too--!
Dear Brian---As a sometimes reader of Rense.com and contributor, I find myself questioning the chemtrails aspect. And having watched the flight pattern of the Anchorage jets as they heading SW over the island on that brilliantly sunny day (with a few low clouds), it was then I noticed the "shiny dot." The late afternoon sunlight reflected off it--Had to have been about 2-3:00 p.m. and lasted about 2 hours. As I said, I was watching my brother cast for silver salmon (he got his limit) while I slapped at bugs. Reclining on the bank seemed to offer a respite from the bug onslaught-lol. Anyway, I watched the silver dot suspended there and it didn't move. Now the high altitude contrails didn't blow away either but simply expanded and grew thinner. The dot must have been quite high because it was obscured but did NOT disappear within the contrails. If it was a balloon though it would have floated even a little way and it did NOT move one way or another. However, the contrails (3-4 jets passes at intervals of 8-10 minutes) did move, widening and growing thinner, as contrails do. The dot was still visible in the same place. Now, where we were fishing was at Buskin Lake surrounded by antennae, which I believe are part of the COMSTA Kodiak coast guard base. Here is what I found on google about the lake and antennae.

I'm former USAF and my brother was US Marines. I didn't point out the dot to him because he was enjoying himself and has bad eyesight--lol---I had hoped the dot would zig and zag--always wanted to see a UFO, so that is why I checked it from time to time. When we left it was still there, 2 hours at least, in the same spot. Even windless skies aren't without a trace of wind in the upper levels, I don't believe, but it was hard to tell the elevation. The few lower clouds were moving across the tops of the mountains, as I noted.
Thank you very much to the witness for the excellent report.
