Husband told me in morning of the 5th of Feb 2014. He saw it very late on Feb 4th, 2014. He is a very cool guy. Had it been me, I would have told him the instant he got up. In fact, I would have awakened him. He just calmly told me after he'd been up, started his coffee, sat down at his computer. He has never ever hallucinated. Neither of us has ever had any experience of the mystical, immaterial, extra-physical. Ever. At all.
He's a retired English professor, perfectly rational. He often stays up very late and sleeps late in a.m. so it was not at all unusual for him to be up at that hour. He saw for about 45 minutes, as he came and went, getting ready for bed. He probably had his eyes on it for 20-25 minutes of the 45 minutes. It was like a sort of flashing ball of many different colored lights, all different colors, he said.
We don't have the kind of phones that take photos. And he didn't even know where to find our camera which is just an ordinary camera. We don't have any means of taking video. We are kind of low-tech.
Two issues. One. The Seahawks had just won the Super Bowl. Could it have been some kind of celebratory something? Two: he looked online and I looked too. Nothing. Someone should have seen it also, one would think. But he did find that exactly 2 years before, Feb 4th of 2012, a glowing ball like the one he saw had been sighted in Ballard in Seattle in exactly same sky position!!! There;s a video of it and a report online. You can look it up; he says it's very similar to what he saw. This seems very odd.
Trust me, he's not making this up. I know him, married over 50 years. I'm a retired librarian (MLS Degree) and very concerned with truth, facts, knowledge. I'm not sure the ball contained all the colors I marked. He just said all colors, every color, changing.
At first husband thought it was a plane with landing lights but it just stayed in place, like hovered there. We are fairly close to SeaTac Airport and lots of military like Fort Lewis. Husband now says he got binoculars (I watch birds) and then saw it was not a plane for sure.
So far, my husband has only told me and my son in Oakland CA.
Please get back if you find any more info about this sighting!!!!
