Sighting Details

On a summer night in 1978 in Washington State, the witness was standing on the grass in a schoolyard when he noticed a 'streak of white light' above him in his right peripheral vision. He at first thought he had missed a falling star... but then it dawned on him that it didn't go past a small cotton cloud above him to the right. As he stood there suspiciously eyeballing the cloud, a 'creeping sensation' came over him, that there was something 'watching him' from behind that cloud. He decided to sucker it in by taking a couple of steps away, then stop and look up again to see if whatever it was behind this cloud would reveal itself. Sure as darkness... an 'orange glowing crystal ovoid' went horizontally from that cloud, across to behind a another cloud above his head to the left. The witness was awestruck. He stood there a while to see if anything else would happen, or if it would come out. When nothing did, he left... feeling uneasy / realizing that he could be seized at any moment. The witness adds that the two cotton clouds were about 725 ft above him; at a 75-80 degree angle looking up in front of him; and 45 degrees on both sides of him. There were no other clouds nearby. The object wasn't a brilliant light; it was a 'clean glow'... similar to a light bulb in an 'opaque lamp'. But instead of seeing the light bulb, it was uniformly glowing, and looked just like a 'glowing orange crystal ovoid'. There was no sound or other lights to it.
