UPDATE: Aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis passes West Seattle, headed back to Bremerton

9 AM: Thanks for the tip! A texter tells WSB an aircraft carrier is about to pass West Seattle, and MarineTraffic.com identifies it as the USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), headed southbound. According to the Kitsap Sun, the Stennis was in Hawaii earlier this month for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack (more here).

This was the second aircraft-carrier sighting from here in three days; the other carrier currently based at Bremerton, USS Nimitz, returned home early Thursday.
