UFO engulfs Washington witness in white light

A Randle, WA, witness reported watching a disc-shaped UFO hovering under 500 feet and just 1,500 feet away that was first noticed when the object projected a light to the ground level, according to testimony in Case 61695 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The events unfolded beginning about 6:55 p.m. on November 25, 2014, when the witness went outside with a flashlight to check a nearby creek level as there were flood warnings in the area.

“It was very quiet with the sounds of the creek water coming to me,” the witness stated. “Looking south I was moving my flashlight from side-to-side, trying to see the water on the fields more clearly when suddenly a very bright light from the southwesterly sky was upon me.”

When the ground light was turned off, the UFO was still completely lit for a few seconds. Pictured: Randle, WA. (Credit: Google)

The witness was suddenly bathed in white light.

“I could see the colors of my jacket and shirt, even my own right hand holding the flash light out in front of me.”

The witness looked up to see where the source of the light was coming from.

“In a field about 1,500 feet away from where I was, below the clouds, hovering in the air soundlessly, was a round object with the bottom pointing toward me so it appeared elliptical.”

The witness described the object.

“The edges were softly rounded, kind of like a thin inner tube, and except for the edge of the object, the entire bottom was lit up. It was like being in a huge spot light, the beam widening around me, narrower where it came from the object. In half a second the beam of light was shut off and all I saw was the bottom of the object, still lit up. The object never moved but remained stationary.”

But the object quickly turned its lights off.

“Then half a second later the entire object blinked out leaving me in darkness, except for my flashlight that was still on. Dazed, I looked around myself in the night.”

The witness looked around again wondering where the object was.

“Then I looked north where the mill lights were reflecting off the bottom of the clouds. About three to five seconds later, beyond the mill and somewhere out in what would have been the horizon on a clear night, I heard a muffled ‘boom’ and then an extremely brilliant blue light lit up the entire sky from one side of the valley to the other.”

During the sighting, the witness heard a boom sound and then the entire sky was lit up in blue. Pictured: Randle, WA. (Credit: Google)

The witness described the series of events that occurred.

“It appeared as if the mill’s lights were briefly turned off during that moment of blue light. Then afterward the mill’s lights appeared again as normal and as if nothing had happened. The sound and the brilliant blue light made me think the two were connected. I wondered if something might have crashed and caused the light. Then I thought about what I’d seen above the field. Were all of these things connected with one another?”

Randle is an unincorporated community in extreme eastern Lewis County, Washington.

Washington has a current UFO Alert Rating of 5 with a low number of recent reports nationally. Washington had 12 UFO reports that occurred during October 2014 – calculated at 1.74 sightings per million population.

As one who had the opportunity to watch the silver cigar. in his mid teens (early days of UFO) youngster in an Air Force family, whose hobby was Aircraft recognition, and Bird watching, father being an Air force officer, heading then days Indian Air Force Aerial photographic wing, days when then British pulled out, and my interests docked into the subject post-1952. Later in life my interests made my colleague query, my most reliable Master and Guru, Sathya Sai Baba, and he said ” Wherever there is dimension, a creation, there is God and nothing but not the way we qualify from Earth about God. Where ever there is God there is also life. where scientists sprout, when the radicle and plumule open they soon turn aware of water, air, radiations and Sun, but Earth enlightened is greedy, would like to overtake civilizations that have existed, for billions of earth years.
    Our fears that a billionaire will snatch stale bread on his floor. There is nothing they have to learn but it is possible they come for study, for saving nursery samples. But western world would like to ignore things wedded to 2000 years of so called human history, and their peeping out of the Industrial revolution. I hope buffoonish Earth life do not beg for help in destroying human races and carry Earth fights, AND i HOPE THEY WILL NOT FALL FOR EARTHIAN NARROW MINDED HATE CONCEPTS.

  2. I was out smoking at around 3:20 am on Sun Nov 30th and saw a bright light that was stationary in the sky south of where I was which is in lake shore Washington the very northern part of Vancouver and I am just curious to know if anyone else saw it because I found it strange I had not seen that bright of a star there before ever and it was the pretty high up from what I could tell and for about 3 min and then just vanished. Just wondering if anyone else might know of anything.

  3. Thousands of stories, thousands of accounts and not a single damn picture/video that shows any proof. Sounds like a world phenomena of the dumb kind, maybe ET is just Bigfoot in disguise.

  4. I am thinking a man looking at a bright source of light, in the dark is not able to offer this degree, or any reliable degree of detail in describing an object in near proximity to that light.

  5. If you have ever witnessed a UFO then you know WE ARE NOT ALONE. I was an engineer for the Navy and I have witnessed UFOs personally and discussed UFOs with FA/18 pilots that have also witnessed UFOs. I believe we are being warned by the UFOs, which continue to monitor and have actually shut down our Nukes, to stop our aggression towards others and to unite all mankind; which they have guided since man’s first day on Earth. The present effort for Disclosure could and should be the start of this “Unity of Man and Peace on Earth” to show the Cosmos we are a race that should be allowed to survive in the Universe. If we do not unite, then there is no hope for the future of mankind.
