Date of Sighting: July 26, 2009
Time of Sighting: 2 AM PDT
Location of Sighting: Seattle, Washington (White Center Area)

Description: A large flash momentarily lit up the whole of my neighborhood and I quickly looked up to see what looked like an object burning up in the atmosphere, except at an angle moving AWAY from our atmosphere. There was no "burn trail" and the object was completely silent. It took about a second and was gone without a trace.

Note: The sighting couldn't be a meteor if the object was moving upward. Bright brief flashes in the sky can have other explanations (lightning, electrical power stations, etc). No thunderstorms were known to be in the area at the time of the sighting.
