UFO paces rural Washington vehicle

A Washington witness at Sequim reported a possible UFO incident from 1994 when a “large, green orb” paced the vehicle he was riding in, according to testimony in Case 81184 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness and two friends were leaving Sequim and were headed toward the Strait of Juan de Fuca on January 15, 1994, when the incident occurred.

“I was in the passenger seat of an early 80s white Ford pickup that had a canopy,” the witness stated.“We were driving alongside GraysmarshBerry Farms when I realized that I was gazing out the window at a green ball of light. It was pacing us perfectly, and was about 30 -40 feet from us at about 25-30 feet off the ground. It was about 4 feet in diameter in my opinion. I am a carpenter by trade.”

The witness said it was like staring at a green moon, and gave out its own light, but was not hard to look at.

“At some point I turned around and started looking around the vehicle for a green light that might be reflecting off the inside of the window. As if prompted by me looking away, the object moved out in front of us into the other witnesses’ view. They apparently couldn’t see it at the height it was at outside my window.”

The other passengers reacted.

“My buddy who was driving yelled, ‘What the Hell is that?’ As I turned around to look, the object had advanced out in front of the truck, but still over the farm property. The large orb was on the other side of some wind break trees that bordered the road, but our view was unobstructed due to no leaves on the trees.”

The driver sped up to catch up with the object, but as he increased his speed, the object did as well.

“We were rapidly approaching the end of the road, where it turned at a 90 and paralleled the Strait. In the next moment, the object took off at a speed – so great it left a line in the sky that was still visible even after we had screeched to a stop at the water. We got out of the truck and just stared as the line slowly disappeared.”

The incident changed how the witness thought.

“We never talked about it after that night. It’s funny now, because when I hear people talk about there being life ‘out there,’ I now have no doubts. One thing I left out is at some point I had rolled down the window to see better once the object had moved out in front of us, and I remember hearing nothing but the truck. Whatever the object was doing, it had to have an ‘intelligence’ behind it. To pace us so perfectly for so long, I will never forget it. I have never written about this experience until now, but remember it as if it were yesterday.”

The object eventually took off at great speed. Pictured: Sequim, WA. (Credit: Google)

We recently covered a California witness at Rancho Santa Margarita who recalled a UFO encounter from 1999 when a ball of light about the size of a beach ball appeared in front of his vehicle, according to testimony in Case 82195.

The witness says it was a clear and sunny day, in broad daylight, on a very familiar road, while driving his car with friends about 2:30 p.m. on July 10, 1999, when the incident began.

“What I can only describe as some kind of a ‘ball’ of light about the size of a large beach ball appeared, very suddenly, out of nowhere, directly in front of my car,” the witness stated. “In a bit of a panic, I asked my friends if they saw it too and they all definitely did.”

MUFON has several historical cases in their witness database with accounts of objects moving along with vehicles. In particular, three Arizona accounts include fascinating testimony in cases closed as Unknowns. These are Case 27685, May 19, 2010, Congress, AZ; Case 29547, June 10, 2011, near Kingman, AZ; and Case 29703, June 24, 2011, Flagstaff, AZ.
