UFOs Over Olympia, Washington December 31st, 2013

Whales In Space kicks off 2014 right with a UFO report over our hometown. The report could be Chinese Lanterns from the behavior and the fact it was New Years Eve, but it is not our job to figure this out, just get the info out there.

The report was originally left as a comment on a February 8th, 2012 sighting post over Olympia in Western Washington.

Did anyone see the 2 orange lights in the clouds at around 9:30pm on December 31st, 2013, last night, over Olympia? One of them came from the north and then another from the northwest,both were traveling south then the first one kind of did a spinning twist gaining altitude then fading out. The second one continued south then faded away. It almost looked like 2 fog lights in the clouds, but they were moving way to slow to be an air plane, and there was no noise, so they could not have been 2 helicopters. Also the way the first one spiraled up was something a copter could not do. These lights were viewed near the I-5 bridge which is Capitol way where Olympia and Tumwater meet.

Two Triangle UFOs Over South Seattle

A Whales In Space tipster left a text message at 4:20 am on April 11th, reporting high level of taxi/CB radio chatter concerning two large triangle UFOs that were sighted south of Seattle Washington.

No other details.

No other reports from www.ufostalker.com in that area.

A report from December 9th, 2009 also claims to have seen a triangle object with 4 lights hovering over the Northern Part of Seattle.

Event ID 20935

my friend and I were driving North 15th ave nw and saw a traangle shape object with 4 lights hovering over the road.It was in a shape of a triangle with a light on each point and a light in the middle. The triangle edges were rounded, not a sharp point. the lights in each corner were off whit and circular in shape. The circular light in the center seemed brighter. It hovered over the road for over a minute. We pulled over and turned around to watch it stop hovering and travel SW towards West seattle. At first we thought it might be an airplane but ruled that out bc there were no flashing lights on it and it seemed way to low and far from the airport. then we thougt it might be a helicopter but as we got closer and then directly under it and realized that it wasn’t a helicopter. I felt scared bc I couldn’t find an explanation for what it could be. My friend was in aww and couldn’t believe what we were seeing… we wanted to see more….but it began to move SW.

Any one with more details, please contact us at (571) 24WEIRD or the Whales In Space Contact Form

Triangle UFO Over Seattle And More Western Washington UFOs

Moscow Triangle UFO Seen Over Seattle A Week Before?

A report of a triangle shaped UFO from www.mufon.com, case #20935, from over Seattle Washington on December 9th, 2009.

The rounded corners of the triangle shape remind me of the object seen about a week later over Russia.
The Russian object had no reported lights like the Seattle one did.

Could it be the same object seen hovering over Moscow?

Less than a week before, a vertical cigar shaped craft was seen south of Seattle in Kirkland WA.

I was driving to work, southbound on I-405, in North Kirkland. It was a very clear sky, and I noticed a vertical, cigar shaped, cylindrical object that was very bright. It looked white to the naked eye. I followed it while driving, and then took three pictures with my iphone. Upon review, I got a good shot with one of the pictures, and it looks like two objects in the picture. There was an airplane close by, and with that reference point I was very convinced that this was not an aircraft of any kind. The moon was also in the sky, as it was such a clear bright morning, and only around 9-9:30am. Attached is the picture of what I saw. You need to zoom a little up and to the right of the trees in order to see the two objects, one on top of the other with a bit of space inbetween.

Attached is a photo… which I don’t see anything in.

And finally I will add Case #21015, my favorite.
Described as a “Bullet/Missile,Cigar,Cone,Cylinder,Diamond,Teardrop” (why pick one) and seen over a non-specific location in Washington State on December 16th:

We were having a christmas drinks party at home when we looked outside and saw this thing. It didn’t appear to be reflective but was lit up a bt because of the moon on it.

I think it might be a warship, here from another planet to assess our capitol. I only noticed it when my wife saw it and her mouth fell open. I only lost sight of it as it started getting smaller, i think heading towards lafayette square.

I thought it was just something like that thing how those people said their kid was in it, starting a manhunt but i knew it wasn’t from ameica when it lit up on the back and started moving. I felt pretty freaked about it when it was gone.

Mel Waters and The Devil's Hole

On February 21, 1997, Art Bell had a guest on his Coast to Coast AM radio show named Mel Waters who claimed to know the location of a mysterious hole on his property outside of Ellensburg, Washington that had some very interesting paranormal properties. He subsequently appeared on February 24, 1997, April 2000 and January 29, 2002. His final appearance on the show was on December 20, 2002.

Waters claimed to own property near Manastash Ridge, Washington, about nine miles west of Ellensburg. On his property, he had found a hole. The hole was about 9 feet around, brick lined down the first 15 feet, and had been used by locals to dump garbage and other unwanted junk for years, never filling up. If you dropped something into the hole, you never heard it hit bottom, and Waters had tried lowering a weight on the end of a fishing line in an attempt to determine the depth. After attaching many reels of line together, the estimate was the hole was in excess of 15 miles deep. The hole also was said to have some other odd qualities, like the ability to bring dead animals back to life. Waters shared a story of a local who had thrown his dead dog into the hole, only to have the dog return to him alive later. At some point, Waters sold the property and Waters disappeared, and with him, the exact location of Mel’s hole.

Since then, there have been multiple ‘searches’ for the location of Mel’s Hole. Nothing has been found matching Water’s mysterious description. In fact, rumor has it the Tri City Herald reported that Waters was not listed in the Kittitas County telephone directory or the registered as a taxpayers, and that authorities in Ellensburg were unable to find any evidence that he was a ever resident or existed. Even the Mel’s Hole Website has called further searches off after determining that the quest for Mel’s Hole is a series of dead ends.

The tale of Mel’s Hole is widely accepted as a urban legend and hoax now, but some rather odd details suggest there may be more to the story than a simple hoax.

First, the story of Mel’s hole didn’t start with Mel Waters. On September 18, 2008, Coast to Coast AM had a guest name Red Elk, an Inter-Tribal Medicine Man who claimed to have visited the hole with his father in 1961 and also claimed to have more information on the hole. Red Elk has said the hole is 24–28 miles deep and connected to Mt Rainier. He has also been know to tell tales of an Inner Earth beneath the surface of the ground with a race giant lizardmen who make sex slaves of captures humans.

Red Elk is not the only one other one to have seen the hole. Ellensburg resident Jay Nickell remember exploring the area of Manastash Ridge as a teenager and coming across a hole that fits Waters’ descriptions.

There are rumbling of a government conspiracy to conceal the location of the hole. Mel’s property was near Yakima Firing Range, a 500 square mile training and firing range near the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, used by soldiers from Fort Lewis. It is said the satellite photos of the area have been altered to protect the military’s training and that images of the hole and Waters’ land were also doctored.

On Waters’ second phone call into Coast To Coast, he described how was prevented from returning to his land by government or military Men In Black types. They claimed there was a plane crash on his property and would not allow him back on his property. Could these Men In Black possibly be responsible for then erasing any record of him owning property or paying taxes in Kittitas County?

During his second call, he also told the story of a conversation Waters had with a long time Kittitas County resident who remembered the hole from many years ago. According to the long time resident, there used to be stone monoliths, much like Stonehenge, with out the top pieces, surrounding the hole.

Waters is thought to now be in Nevada, studying another mysterious hole. This hole is creeper yet, with a bizarre story of a dead sheep that was lowered into Waters’ new hole and returned dead and completely ‘cooked’ on the inside. When cut open, the sheep was found to be filled with a jelly like substance described as a tumour that formed into a alien/seal like creature that jumped back into the hole.

Until Mel Waters resurfaces, we may never know the truth behind the strange tale of Mel Waters and The Devil’s Hole.

Thanks to a Whales In Space tipster for the heads up on Mel Water’s Devil’s Hole.

August 2008 UFO Over Puget Sound

Robert Dinse, of Shoreline Washington captured several interesting UFO pictures near Richmond Beach over the Puget Sound on August 20th 2008.

Dinse captured four images of the object (all posted on his website) and doesn’t give a very well detailed description of the encounter. I presume the photos were taking from a boat, but that is never specified. Dinse also does not say how the sighting ended, whether the object floated away or simply disappeared.

There also seems to be something odd about the reported date of the sighting and the date of the post. The sighting was on August 20th 2008, yet the date on the blog post says June 20th 2008, two months before the photos were taken.
