       PART II:    Narrative of second witness, female, age 33
             Transcribed from notes by Dr. Donald Johnson, March 13, 1988
       [The first three paragraphs are a narrative from a phone 
       interview with this witness on Friday, March 11th:]
            While crossing the street with my boyfriend from a corner 
       24-hour convenience store we saw a huge, metallic 
       spherical-shaped object surrounded by a bright blue light over 
       the West Seattle golf course and Camp Long.  The object was as 
       wide as a football field is long.  We heard a humming sound, and 
       estimated it to be only 300 yards above the golf course.
            We were nearly knocked down by a car because we were 
       standing there in the middle of the street kind of mesmerized by 
       the sight of such a strange object so close to the ground.  The 
       driver of the car pulled over and stopped.  We watched the 
       object together for about 30-40 seconds.  It moved very quickly 
       right, then left--in sort of a zig-zag--and then it was gone.
            I'm in my thirties and I work as a transit operator for 
       Metro [the regional bus system].  I've never seen anything like 
       it despite driving buses late at night for many years.  After 
       the sighting we discussed the sighting with the other man and we 
       decided not to report it.  Later on I decided that we ought to 
       report what we had seen to someone, and I looked up "UFO" in the 
       white pages and found the number for the UFO Reporting Center 
       and called it.  I'm sorry now that the other witness drove away 
       before we could get his name.  We called to find out if anyone 
       else had reported it and were surprised to hear that no one else 
       [Narrative from March 13, 1988:]
            I was still in the store when he saw the object from 
       the sidewalk.  I don't know how long he'd seen it before 
       he yelled at me.  But when he got my attention he pointed 
       over in the golf course direction.  I saw it when it first 
       started to move.  When it moved up, it moved sort of away.  I 
       guess east.  The more we talked about it the more we felt that 
       we should call somebody.  I called the UFO Reporting Center late 
       on Monday morning.  I wanted confirmation that "yes, we did see 
       this strange object, because other people saw it, too".  He went 
       down to the golf course, I just went home.  I have a 
       two-and-a-half-year-old and he was asleep in the car and I 
       didn't want to get too close.
            My parents are Jehovah's Witnesses and they have a 
       religious interpretation for these things, they say that they 
       are "spiritual manifestations" [Note:  the notetaker missed some 
       of what the parents' explanation was at this point, however, the 
       gist of what she said was that she was skeptical of her parents'
