Sighted a bright, pulsating white light below the cloud cover, with a light blue top, red glow amidships and bright white bottomFriday Jan. 16/2009 5:45PM PST A friend and I were driving from LaConner, WA to Conway, WA to catch Interstate 5 South to Arlington, WA. I was in the front passenger seat. The area is rural farming.We headed East on Chillburg Rd. then turned South, South East onto Best Road. As we cleared some trees I saw to the right of us (west) a bright pulsating white light. We were just coming into Rexville when I lost sight of it.We crossed the North fork of the Skagit river and turned South on Fir Island Rd. As soon as we turned, we saw it again to our right (west). It looked bigger this time and my friend suggested that it was Venus or Jupiter. Then we realized that the object was stationary and below the cloud cover. A light fog was rising but the object shone very bright like a mercury vapor light.We found a place to pull over and watched the object through binoculars for about ten minutes. It remained stationary about 35 degrees above the horizon. I used an old navy trick to judge degrees by extending my arm, fingers closed and parallel to the horizon. It measured 3 and 1/2 hands above the horizon which is about 35 degrees. I could not judge the distance but its altitude was under 3,000 ft. because that was the ceiling and it was below the clouds.The object, as seen through the binoculars, was extremely bright with a soft blue light that seemed to cover the top; a pale red glow showed amidships and the bottom and sides were bright white. It was silent and stationary. It's shape could not be determined because the pulsating light was too bright.A few other cars pulled over because they too saw it. Unfortunately, none of us had a camera.We got back in our car and watched it as we continued south on Fir Island Rd. Just before the road comes to a tee and Fir Island turns sharply to the East, it disappeared. I started writing down everything I could remember and decided to submit this sighting.
