UFO Sighting Report - USA
Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.
With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.
1981/1986 : Sprague, Washington State
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Country: USA
State: Washington State
City: Sprague (approx 30 miles west of Spokane)
Date: I do not remember exactly. I was in college at Pullman (WSU) and driving up to Sprague to hit I-90 to go west to Tacoma (my home town). 1981-1986. I do not recall which year. Spring to early summer. Or maybe fall. It was not winter. It was nice weather. Middle of the day.
Approach Direction: North
Departure Direction: North
Witness Direction: North
Description: There was a large airliiner and a dark blob at the end of the right wing. I pulled over and the dark blob had moved to the front of the aircraft. I watched for about 1 minute and then noticed two fighter jets coming from the Spokane area. They were still a ways off when the dark blob suddenly raced north across the sky leaving a dark streak like the atmosphere had parted. Actually, it was instentaneous. The fighters pulled up alongside the airliner for a minute or two and then departed. The airliner never changed course that I recall and continued north.
Color/Shape: Just a dark blob. It was rather oval rather than perfectly round as I remember it. The longest length about and maybe a bit more thant the width of the airliners wing width (front to back).
Height & Speed: It was going the same speed as the airliner initially. When it left, it went all the way across the sky instantaneously leaving a dark vapor like trail or parting of the atmosphere. I did not actually see it moving - there was just an instant trail in the sky and the blob was gone.
TV/Radio/Press: I have no idea. I have never formally reported it before
