Shape: Light | Duration: 30-45 min

Bright light over NSB BangorWhile ((purpose and location deleted to protect anonymity of witness)), Submarine Base Bangor, at about 2300 I noticed a very bright white light almost due south of my post. What attracted my attention was the intensity of the light and the flashes, not twinkling like a star as seen through the atmoshpere. It was about 30 degrees above the horizon and did not move and there was no sound. When I looked at the object through my binoculars, red and blue or blue/green flashes could be clearly seen. At about 2330, the object seemed to move away as it got smaller in size and the intensity deminished until it could not be seen. This process happened slowly over a period of about 5 minutes and as it moved away, it only dropped in elevation by 1 or 2 degrees. The night was clear and cold with stars readily visible and just a hint of fog above the water of Hood Canal. At 2345, the object again became visible but was further south and west of its prior position at about 25 degrees above the horizon. The object very slowly moved west as if the Earth was rotating under it, but the change in position was faster than the Earths rotation. The flashing lights were still clearly visible. I referenced other stars visible from my location but none had the flashing lights. At 2353 and at about 20 degrees above the horizon, the object again slowly started moving away until about 0012 at about 15 degrees above the horizon it finally faded from sight.((NUFORC Note: We have amended the report above to protect the anonymity of the witness, who was located at, or near, the Bangor Submarine Base, located approximately 25 miles west of Seattle. We suspect the witness may have been observing the star, Sirius, but that is a guess. PD))((FOLLOW-UP CORRESPONDENCE FROM WITNESS))Hi Peter: I met you once when you came to Bremerton years ago for lunch. I was the person that gave you the article about Bob Dribble ((sic--Gribble, founder of NUFORC)). As for the object I saw, it was back the next night at about the same time but not as intense. It was also further to the East and at about 35 to 40 degrees in elevation. I don't know if I was looking at a star or not. All I can say is that I don't think stars fade out and then return, I.E., appears to move lower in the sky, fades out, moves west and higher in the sky and fades back in. I do know the sky around here are crowded. In 1984 when the wife and I first moved into out newly erected mobile home, we were out on what was to become out lawn, sitting in lawn chairs just looking up at the beautiful starlit sky when 2 of the stars moved off to the NW (I don't know if it was one ship of 2 moving together) followed about 5 minutes later by 2 more to the NW which was followed about 10 minutes later by 2 more exiting to the SW. Take care my friend and keep up the good work, hopefully some monetary gain will eventually come of your efforts. As with Billy Meier, it is day to day when it comes to funding.Signed, ((name deleted))((END))
