Clear UFO Daylight Sighting Over Seattle, Amazing!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 Mufon Report: On Dec. 30 2012 I was downtown killing time before meeting friends for a weekend of bringing in the new year, so I decided to take some photos of buildings and places around downtown Seattle which I found to be interesting.

It was an uneventful morning and I got several great photos of the area. Several days later I was reviewing my photos when I noticed this object apparently hovering above a building in one of them. I zoomed in on it and quickly realized the object does not look like an airplane or a helicopter.

It vaguely resembles a blimp, yet it had unusual characteristics. There appears to be no windows, some blueish and reddish coloration, definitely metallic looking surface. There also appears to be an appendage sticking out the top near the middle and also seems as if it may have a boomerang shape as well. 

When I originally took the photograph I saw nothing hovering there and heard nothing unusual, just typical sounds of city traffic and such. It was only after I had reviewed the photo nearly a week later that I realized it was there.

It was not visible to the naked eye or in my viewfinder on my phones camera when I took the photo. I feel like it could be something remarkable or perhaps not. I do not have any means of enhancing the photo with my phone, so I cant really get a more clear look at the object other than the zoom I do have. 

This thing doesnt look like any known aircraft I have ever seen and all who I have showed the photo to agree that I may very well have a legitimate UFO sighting over downtown Seattle. I would like to have this picture examined by an expert to determine what it is just as much as I want to know what it is not.

      C’mon man… It’s 2013 (2012 whe this photo was taken) , my point is, nowadays nearly all phones have video capability, why not take video of this instead of a fairly vague photo? It is difficult to make out what this is, like many UFO photos.

      Nice photo though.


      • whitebear

        I have a cell phone with no video capabilities and a 1 meg camera.
        It came from Walmart.
        I expect I’m not the only one or that Walmart isn’t the only provider of such things.

        As for the unidentifiable floating object, I’ve never seen that one.
        But you wouldn’t believe some of the things i have seen.

    • AnonymousMaximus

      After carefully looking at the photo, it appears it is part of the light pole…. Nice…

      Please do not post crap like this again… Thank you and have a nice day, oh, and happy new year!

      Go back and take another photo, then you will find your answer.

      If it is a photo, and you didn’t see it when you took the picture, then pray tell how you know it is hovering?

    • Anonymous

      If it is a photo, and you didn’t see it when you took the picture, then pray tell how you know it is hovering? It is a STREET LIGHT!! The glare hides the extension from the pole.

      Yeah that’s it… anything you don’t understand HAS TO BE A FLYING SAUCER LOL. Such low IQs anymore. :!:

      Attention Morons

      In light of spacial distortions.. there is no way ANY street light is this big.

      Do you see any other “streetlights” around this big? I didnt think so….

      You people are either intentionally idiots by denying this or clearly, working for some alphabet agency.

      DENIAL :!:


        hah! looks to me like the debut of a colossal arse.. heh, you are in no position to be calling anyone a moron.

        DIMWIT :!:

      • Archimedes

        The street light is close to the camera and the building is far away. Have you never noticed that objects close to you look bigger and further away they look smaller?

        What I want to know is why the picture was squashed vertically. If you look at pictures of the Dexter Horton building on Google Street View, you can see that the sign letters aren’t as squat as that, they are taller and thinner, as well as the windows and the tower to the right.

        It looks as if it was deliberately altered to make the “UFO” look flatter and more saucer shaped and thus more like a traditional UFO.


    • Jay

      There are “artifacts” around the object. some pixellation or such. like you get from a bad copy/paste operation.

      • Anonymous

        Thank you that is the best Evidence that this is a Hoax

        • AnotherSon

          I was initially thrilled that there was possibly unexplained phenomena in my neck of the woods. Can’t say I’m not a little disappointed but my brain just won’t shut-up with critical thinking here and reasoning there.

    • Coolit

      I think it’s a great shot!!! Funny enough I think it’s Identifiable thanks to a photo I found here on BIN.

      Take a look

      And the kids they dance and shake their bones and the politicians
      throwing stones singing ashes to ashes all fall down.

      Ashes to ashes all fall down.

      Be good to each other.

    • doodles

      Why do so many now days think they must be rude or use foul language in order to make a point in responding to a submitted story and/or photo? Did anybody bother to look up streetlights to see if it matched one? If I saw or experienced something unusual or questionable I would be afraid to post it for fear I’d get a totally negative response to my query. Maybe it’s a fast paced world we live in but does than mean we all must have a fast paced mouth that utters things before the brain has a time to think about it?

    • Coolhandluke

      I agree that our responses don’t have to be rude and disrespectful. At least “whitebear” shared this image for us to look at and draw conclusions. Personally I feel that it may be the light portion of the street light. You can see the streetlight pole just to the right of it. If you notice just below the object in question and towards the right there is a clear image of another streetlight. You can reference the light portion of that light and compare it to the object and they are very similar in shape with something sticking out of the top right portion. The sun appears to be position somewhere upper right given the shadow on the building. Given a strong glare, which completely glares out the view of the rod connecting the light to the pole, that glare would be strong enough to distort somewhat the image of the light portion, which in this case, is the light portion of the nearer streetlight. That would be my conclusion, but thank you Whitebear for at least affording us the opportunity to comment what we think It might be.

    • thilliker2

      This is a fake!! you can see clearly the pixelation around the UFO as he zooms in and no pixelation
      on the building…. LOW resolution Picture overlay on a HIGH resolution Picture :idea:

      • Anonymous

        That was my first impression too. Always a dead giveaway.

      THE US AIRFORCE has been capturing alien craft for decades and when americans see a copy of one built at the BOEING AIRCRAFT factory they freak out ????? WHY ,go to boeing and talk to the employees and they will tell you the have contracts to build these things in canada,my brother who worked at boeing said they have built hundreds of them,when their finished the airforce comes and gets them and off they go………………………wake up you paid for them…………….there fast to from what I hear…………………

    • The Blind Consumer

      Tits or GTFO

    • pete258

      light pole morons

    • Knarlydawg

      It’s a street light…..look farther down the street, you will see a street light that matches exactly, the post and light which appears closer to photographer that has the support arm washed out by intense back lighting. Come on, this is too obvious.

    • Anonymous

      Only one photo of this? This happened over Seattle is broad daylight and there are no other photo’s or video’s not to mention no news reports? That spells one thing..FAKE..

    • OriginalBender

      Yup! Lightpost arch has been photoshopped out.

    • nicdmus

      Something like this happened to me a few years ago, my wife and I were exploring a crop circle in Wiltshire, England, quite near to Avebury, my wife took a picture of me standing in the middle of the folded wheat. ( this was just before digital cams came out ) when we got the films developed, there were 4 spheres right in front of my chest, there was no light reflection or sun etc, and we could not see these at the time, I have tried blowing up the pics but they just become distorted.
      I have showed the pics to many people but nobody can explain what it is, even the film technicians were stummped.
      Avebury is a strange place mind you and there are lots of ufo and crop circle anomalies.
      I will try to find a way of placing the photo on this site. Cheers, Nick.

    • A Patriot

      Streetlight….. the bridge connecting the lamp to the pole is photoshopped out. total BS, NEXT!!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      I heard if your flap continues to leak for more than four hours, you should call your doctor.

    • skai

      You’ve got to be kidding right?! This looks surprisingly like the street lamps further down the street.

      Lets reserve this space for credible reports!


        exactly like.. even the first photo here clearly shows the second light in the lower right corner and is blatantly obvious.
        says a lot about stephen hannard and alien disclosure group doesn’t it..

    • inkhead

      This is a GENUINE UFO, someone photographed something with nearly the same exact shape flying at high speed over canada recently. I have high hopes!

    • YellowRoseTx51

      I don’t know which is more humorous. The “Posing” for a Picture with the Name on the Building beneath it.

      “Dexter” which is a serial killer series; and “Horton” ‘had a ‘WHO’. For those that do not know the Moloch are the Sumerian speaking ‘owl’ race represented in the movie “Fourth Kind.”

      The craft looks like the new line of “Aurora” aircraft they have had for more than a decade now.

    • Jacksdad

      Maximum lameness.

    • Anonymous

      Just google “seattle street lights”…debunked.

    • wookietim

      It’s a streetlamp. I live in Seattle, so I walked downtown to see if I could get the same angle. Looking up in the same direction as this picture, at a specific time of day (Roughly mid-day) the street lamp’s arm that connects it to the poll can be obscured by a reflection of the sun in a camera.
