Description: I saw a UFO flying from north to south over my house in Poulsbo, Washington tonight. (This was not the usual flight pattern for aircraft going to SEATAC airport. Those planes are usually circling from northwest heading to southeast.)

I thought at first it must be an airliner because what made me notice it were two large extremely bright lights coming straight at me with small outboard colored lights. It flew totally silent and very fast a couple thousand feet overhead. I could make out dark Delta-shaped wings as it went overhead passing over the house. There were colored lights on the tips of the wings. There was a strobe-type light at the rear where a tail would be. It is a clear night, but slightly cloudy in patches. I could see stars visibility was good overall. The UFO was silhouetted against some clouds over the house which let me see the outline. The craft was large, but not enormous.

The oddity was the fast silent climb. When I first observed it, I was outside on the north side of my house. I watched it as it approached, moved directly overhead and then as it quickly passed over my house out of sight. (My house is two-story approximately 40 feet high.) I ran around the east side of my house and saw it again as it continued traveling south in the same trajectory. Now however it was much smaller and higher, but for a few seconds I picked up colored flickering lights and the bright white light. As I watched it got higher and higher and smaller and smaller. Quickly the faint colored lights disappeared and I could only see one bright steady white light which shrank in size as it rose in elevation. The size diminished quickly to a tiny point of light and then disappeared.

The observation time was no more that two or three minutes. I never heard sounds of engines as it passed by at its lowest elevation. I have seen many kinds of planes flying overhead, but have never seen one climb so high so quickly and so silently.

For information purposes Naval Base Bangor is approximately 5 miles southwest of my home in Poulsbo Washington. This base houses nuclear submarines and other military warfare equipment.

Note: UFO activity is not uncommon near the Bangor Submarine Base. It is not known if the above object was associated with the base. The witness clearly believes that the flying object was not conventional given that she refers to it as a UFO.
