Butch Witkowski, Director of the UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania forwarded an interesting report:
In June 1976 my sister and I were living in Seattle, WA in an apartment on Beacon Hill. Our apartment faced east (front door) and south (kitchen/living room) and I was doing dishes with a view of Mount Rainier (slightly southeast) with the bay to the right. As I stood there washing dishes, talking to my sister, I looked out and saw something flying toward our location. I yelled to my sister, “Come here and tell me what I’m seeing!” She stood next to me looking out the window and said, “I don’t know what that is!”
A large disc-shaped object silently approached, when it got near it began to hover over the neighbors house (a three story Victorian, the bottom story was the garage area) and began to signal using light panels underneath the elliptical edge of the saucer. Then a light shined down on the house, it was then I noticed two jets coming from the military base at full throttle, suddenly all the lights on the saucer were lit up (underneath) and a low level humming began (which was mixed with the roar of the jets by then), it began to move so fast the jets swung out and around (before the turn was executed the ship was over Mount Rainier), the object was shooting straight up into the air and the jets lost it.
At the same time this was going on the radio announcer said, “Please don’t call in about a flying saucer, we know it’s a plane that’s been flying around with advertisements.” Then the plane was flying just to the west of us near the bay at the same time my sister and I were watching these events unfold.
(UFORCOP) The closest report I could find is from an incident that happened in the area which I’ve enclosed:
Gathered from: http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/067/S67707.html
Occurred : 6/1/1976 04:00 (Entered as : 1976 4:00)
Reported: 12/29/2008 3:28:44 PM 15:28
Location: Federal Way, WA
Large Round Aircraft seen in Federal Way, Washington Approximately 1976
I am now 43 and I was 11 at the time this happened. I will never forget the event and wish to this day I could draw because I can remember it like it was yesturday.
My parents and I were sitting in our living room in Federal Way, Washington on Star Lake Road. We had a house that had two huge windows. When out of the blue a very large round object appeared right in front of our windows. It was about the size of 1/2 of football field. There were rectangular lights that flashed in a circular motion. There were to windshields that were the same size as the lights. It was grey in color and made no noise what so ever. My dad said" Must be some new boeing project" It just sat there for at least a minute. My mom said ya right, I have never seen anything that that. In a instant it shot straight up into the air and took off heading South towards Portland. We called my aunt and she was like, I see nothing. The strangest thing of all is the next day at breakfast my parents remembered seeing something but they both said it was a dream. Then said, how can we all have the same dream. I try now to talk to my parents about it, my mom is eager to tell it but my dad is dead silent and wont say a word. I wish I could see it again.
((NUFORC Note: Source of report indicates that the date of the incident is approximate. PD))
P.S. After we saw this event a car pulled up directly across the street (black sedan) and four individuals, three male and one female, went into the house that the craft hovered over. The next day they came to our building and knocked on our door, my sister (who was 17 years old at the time) didn’t answer the door. She came to me and whispered that strange looking people were at the door, should she answer it? I whispered let me look and I saw it was the same group from across the street the day before.
I motioned to my sister to back up into the kitchen and I followed her there and mouthed “be quiet”. The group was interrupted by our upstairs neighbor who asked, “What the *bleep* are you doing here?” They got into a heated discussion and then left. I felt someone thinking to me that I shouldn’t talk to anyone about this and for almost 40 years I haven’t.
NOTE: Mt. Rainier is an active volcano...in fact, Mt. Rainier is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. I have reported previously on UFO activity around active volcanoes. Even though this report is from 1976, there have been continued sightings of UFOs and other odd phenomena around the mountain for over a century. If you have a report or other new information on related UFO activity, please go to UFORCOP contact. Lon
