bright light hovering in Yakima Wa, closer to Tampico, in the evening on 3/22/09Approximately 630pm last night, I spotted a bright light that often changed shape. It was several miles to the west, hovering high in the sky. I noticed it because it was hovering atop a darker image. The darker image was a tall row of trees that sit to the west of the house, about a quarter mile away. The object was a considerable distance away, yet visible.I didn’t think anything of it because I thought it was a star at first. I was watching a movie with my son, and my peripheral vision caught it yet again, minutes later. It was now hovering slightly lower. I thought again that I was making this up, when I would glance at the television, and minutes later I noticed it was now only visible through the tree limbs. I asked my son to take a look, noting where to look and asked him to tell me what he saw. He said he saw a silver light, sometimes flashing and sometimes not. There was no sunlight at this time, so it could not have been a reflection of light off of some craft like a plane, or blimp, etc.We went outside and looked with the binoculars to get a closer look. This was now some 20 minutes from the 1st notice of this object. As we looked with our own eyes, and then with the binoculars, we noticed it wasn’t a star. Now, we had a few stars out so that we could make a comparison.The object was probably 10+miles off to the west, near the city of Tampico. The object disappeared behind some dark clouds.It was gone out of sight about 715pm. I went onto the internet to see if there had been any UFO sightings in Yakima. I was amazed to see how many there were. This is another to add.Thank you.
