UFO Sighting Report


September, 1990


Port Angeles, Washington, United States


Silent craft gliding slowly overhead with alternating white lights that appeared to be situated at three corners of a triangle-shaped ship with one possible light in the middle of the craft that was brighter and able to rotate around. It was as dark, clear, calm evening and my husband and I were in our hot tub in our backyard. First thought to be an airplane, we noticed that it was moving extremely slow, at times not at all, and it made no sound and the lights were alternating and appeared to be searching for something.

Comments about the image(s): Drawing by the witness.

Sighting Time: 

11:30 p.m.



No. of Witnesses: 



at least twenty minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The craft was triangular in shape and had at least three white lights that alternated indiscernibly and perhaps one light in the middle of the craft. I know it was triangular because it would block out the stars that were illuminated behind it. It moved very slowly and made absolutely no sound and seemed to move in any direction in an indectable fashion. It seemed to be 'searching' or 'surveying' the area around our land.

Size of Object(s)

It's relative size was approximately 2 inches across. From my point of view I would estimate it's actual size to be 100+ feet across.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Rural area relatively undeveloped. The closest dwelling to us was 400+ feet away but had no exterior lighting on. Other dwellings were much further away and there were wooded areas and all but three sides of our property. The closest commercial site was at least one mile to the west of us. The property was located approximately 2 miles south of the the Straits of Juan De Fuca and 10-12 miles north of the Olympic Mountain Range near the Deer Park area. The property was 4-5 miles east of the Port Angeles city limits. There are several military sites located further east on the Straits of Juan De Fuca and along the Hood Canal and Puget Sound, including Whidby Island Naval Air Station, Bangor Nuclear Sub Station, Puget Sound Naval Shipyards, and several Coast Guard stations. It is also 'Urban Legend' that Port Angeles hosts several experimental facilities mainly located at the Farchild International Airport which was a base location for P-38 Lightning aircraft during WWII.

Full Description & Details

My now ex-husband and I were sitting out in our hot tub late one evening. It was very clear. We lived in a rural location just east of Port Angeles, Washington, just off Highway 101 on 3.4 acres of land. The surrounding property was also rural and owned by my husbands family. At that time, there were no commercial properties around our land. The stars were countless and you could even see the Milky Way. The night was very calm with no wind and there was no moon. We had no jets or bubbles going and the only sound was a slight hum from the heater in the hot tub. We had no exterior lights on as we used to enjoy star gazing from our backyard spa. And you could barely hear the light traffic from the highway about 1/4 of a mile away. As we sat gazing up at the stars, we saw what we thought, at first, was an airplane. This was not uncommon as Port Angeles has an international airport on the west side of the city. But soon, we noticed that this airplane was moving very, very slowly and it made no sound. We both commented on this and we waited for it to start making a normal airplane sound. That never happened. As we sat watching this craft, it flew from north to south across the sky. It never made a sound the entire time we witnessed it! This craft took at least twenty minutes to cross the entire sky and then when it got close to the Olympic Mountain Range to our south it shot off at a unusually high rate of speed. As the craft hovered slowly toward us, it had at least three white lights that appeared to be at the corners of it's triangle shape. We could see the outline of it because it blocked out the stars where it's mass was. Its lights seemed to change from one corner to another in a way that I can't explain. Only one light would be on at a time but it seemed that the lights would alternately come on and go off...for lack of a better explaination...without detection. The craft also undiscernibly seemed to move back and forth as it moved forward...again...without detection. Then, as it hovered over the top of us, it seemed that a light in the center of the craft rotated slowly around and then alighted on us. We both just sat there unable or unwilling to move. It was quite eerie! We both felt a strange sensation while the light was on us that we were visible and even 'scanned' or something by the occupant(s) of the craft. It is impossible to describe the feeling we both had. I am much more open-minded and enlightened than my 'ex', but even he felt somehow as if there was something extra-sensory about our experience that night. The light stayed on us for about 10 seconds and then the craft continued on in its slow, methodical survey. Neither of us spoke or moved for quite some time. We just watched this thing hover slowly off to the south and then it shot off over the mountains. We both agreed immediately that this was not any type of aircraft that we had ever seen or even heard about before. We still, to this day, swear that this was a UFO and most likely not of this world. We were not using any mind-altering drugs or drinking alcohol. My ex-husband and I are both respectable members of our community. It was an eerie incident and it changed both of our beliefs about extra-terrestrial life and the knowledge that we are definitely not alone in this huge universe!

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

ASOLUTELY NOT!!! Once again, I reiterate that if this craft was of this world, our government has some really cool technology and I wish they would let us in on it. If they do possess this technology it most likely came from another world during the mid-twentieth century incidents that are all too well publicized. If we do possess this technology, we have nothing to worry about in regards to national security!

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

My views before this sighting were not much different than they are now. It just solidified my beliefs. I have always felt that there must be other, perhaps more intelligent life in our vast universe. And quite frankly, I hope there is and I hope that they will be able and willing to help us when we completely muck up our planet!

Other Comments

I believe that we human beings have been directly influenced by beings from another place in our universe in our distant past. Perhaps as far back as 30,000 years ago. Somehow at that time in our evolution our development sped up quite considerably. My one hope is that the beings that affected our evolutionary path have been keeping tabs on us and who know, even have the abilities described in the many different religious beliefs throughout history and will know us and be able to discern who is forthright and deserving of reward, (aka, heaven) and who is not! If you have this hope also, it will be nice to meet you someday.
