August 10th 2004

Federal Way, Washington Strange Star-Like Object

Date: Approx: August 10, 2004
Time: Late evening/Early morning

On, or about, August 10th my boyfriends mother, sister and myself went outside to watch the Meteor Showers. We positioned ourselves outside on the walkway in chairs and settled down to watch what was supposed to be one of the most incredible Meteor Showers yet. As we sat down in our chairs I noticed a weird star like object appearing above the roof tops. I pointed it out to my boyfriends mother and sister, and we became memorized. It gradually began to rise higher above the roof tops and we were able to get a more "full on" view. It appeared to be a star at first, but we couldn't help but notice how much brighter it was than all the other stars that were out. It continued to rise... very, very slowly, and we noticed that it was flashing an array of colors. Red/Orange ... blue... and kind of a whitish yellow..... we rushed in to get the binoculars, and were able to see it a little bit clearer. In the course of an hour and a half or two hours, it moved from it's original position in the North... to a more North eastern position.

Not fast, but none the less moving while no other stars were. We watched it for as long as we possible could then came in to go to bed. We have been faithful about going outside to look for it and have noticed a strange pattern. As of last night, August 17th... exactly one week from the first day that we originally saw it, it had move drastically. We stepped out the from door to the West, and there it was! We immediately ran over to where we had seen it first and it wasn't there. We stood outside with the binoculars and noticed that there as a strange white solid (not flashing like the object) light that looked like it came from the object.... moved to the Southeast at a decent pace, and then all of the sudden faded out. We came back inside for approx. 30 minutes... returned back outside at 11:56 p.m... and the light was gone. We walked down the sidewalk to where we had seen it first and sure enough it was there! I tried to take several pictures of it and the stars around it showed up, but the object wasn't present in any of the pictures. Needless to say were going tonight to get a telescope. Please let us know if anyone else in the Federal Way, Auburn, Puyallup, Tacoma, Sumner area have seen anything like this.

Thank you for your time.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
