Believe It Or Not: UFO Sighting Reported in University Place

A University Place resident reported on the website www.ufostalker.com that a UFO giving off an orang-ish white light flew in the area Monday.

Do you believe in UFO's?

Well, at least one person from University Place does, and that person claims there was one over the neighborhood Monday.

That person reported the sighting to the unidentified flying object website, www.ufostalker.com. The user puts the UFO - which emitted an orangish white glowing light - somewhere in the area near 19th Street West shortly on Monday night.

The source who submitted the sighting gave this summary:

I had got up to let the dog out and he didn't want to go out so I stepped outside and noticed a glowing orange white light over the back yard above the trees. It didn't make a sound. In fact the air was quiet with no frogs croaking. The sky was clear. If I held out my pointer finger the object would be the smaller than a #2 pencil eraser. As I watched it fly it seemed to wobbled for lack of a better word just slightly. As it moved across the sky North by slightly East when it got behind the tree it made a slight right and proceeded on a more Easterly course. I live under one of the flight paths at Sea Tac Airport and an occasional fly by from Joint Base Lewis McChord but this wasn't one of those aircraft. As I watched it fly away when it disappeared from view the neighbors dog barked and the frogs started croaking again

Freaky stuff. Or not. Depending on whether or not you believe in UFO's.

Well, so far, the majority of the voters think it either happened or it's true. Keep the votes coming, everyone!

That was my duck in training for the race on Saturday.

I like Dave's theory.

I'm confused by the accompanying photos. These were not taken by our local UFO spotter. Rather, they appear to be "file photos" of who knows what (an array of ceiling lights?) taken by a pro in Los Angeles. They don't begin to resemble what our local citizen reports having seen, so why post them to illustrate the story?

Hi Mary, Thanks for the comment. You are correct. The picture is file art. I thought including it would help illustrate the story. There was no photo provided by the University Place resident who spotted and reported it. I try to always attach some of artwork to help tell a story visually. So to answer the question, I thought including the picture would help illustrate the story better. Sorry for the confusion.

Brent, do you know if there were photos taken of the event by anyone?
Brent Champaco June 01, 2012 at 05:12 AM
Not that I can find, Chris.

I will be on the look out the next time I let my Chihuahua out late at night. Wow!
