Martha, I think it's aliens.

For those of you living in the Salish Sea area, the bizarre looking thing coming down the Strait of Juan de Fuca is the offshore X-band radar platform SBX, coming down from its normal station in Alaska for repairs at Todd Shipyard. It will be rounding Point Wilson and heading into Admiralty Inlet and Puget Sound around 1400pdt today, and will be arriving in Seattle early this evening.

Once it arrives at Todd there will be a 100 meter security zone around it; how that will affect vessels fueling at Ranier Petroleum remains to be seen.

You can track the platform here if you're interested, it's being escorted by the Lindsey Foss:
