I was at Golden Gardens Park , in the parking lot ,looking out at Puget Sound.It was a warm September evening . There were many people out on the beach with several bonfires going . Music and laughter were in the air...It was dark and the sky was clear.At around 8:20 I noticed an orange-yellow orb coming out of the north , passing by the beach ,and continuing to the south ,going right over Seattle , about 20 minutes away by car. I instinctively knew it was a UFO and immediately got my journal out of my truck and began noting what was going on. The second one came by at 8:30 and then in 5,10, and 15 minute intervals until 10:10 , a total of 13.The beach-goers became quiet... The UFOs were flickering,orange-yellow orbs with radiating shards of yellow light emanating from the top. They were about 1/8 mile out over Puget Sound , maybe 1,000 feet up.I could see and hear the jet traffic going in and out of SeaTac airport,about 35 minutes away , but the orbs were silent.As the 3rd one came by,I signaled to it with a small , hand-held flashlite. It seemed to slow a little and I thought to myself "I wonder what they are doing ?" Immediately the word "conference"came into my mind...I think they contacted me! Most of them seemed to be following Puget Sound as a flitepath . One made a 90 degree turn and headed west at the same altitude.But here is the kicker : one blasted-off , straight up , with 3 noticeable speed-changes.It"wiggled" from side-to-side as it went and kept it's color until after the 3rd speed-change,at which time it became a black dot , and then disappeared ! That blew my mind ! I've been studying UFOs for 43 years and had never seen one in person . What an initiation ! ! !
