Description: Hello. I live in South Bend, Washington and for the last 3 nights in a row when my friend and I have went outside to walk my dog, we have seen strange white lights that look like bright stars, and they’re moving in the weirdest patterns. The first night there was 1 and the second night their were about 3 or 4, and tonight I only spotted the 1, but didn’t look for long. We showed a neighbor and he instantly said it was those Mexican festival light balloons being let loose in town. And the wind current is why they are moving like that. But I’m not so sure. They are flying exactly like a hummingbird flies, in quick and akward little movements and in generally the same type direction. Even with current, the lantern light would eventually get dimmer as they get farther away. These didn’t, they stayed like that. They persisted for hours. I don’t know what to think. Please let me know what it could be and if were the only ones seeing it. I appreciate it.

Response From Witness Regarding Investigator Input: Really? My phone wouldn’t even adjust so I could capture it. Do you know of a place to see what those look like at night so I can compare?

Response From Witness (Viewed Videos of Chinese Lanterns): Well, I did a Google search on Chinese Lanterns and did some investigating. That is not what we saw at all really. That is kind of bugging me right now. But Uh, anyways. Thanks.

Note: Given the above information it is doubtful that the witnesses saw Chinese Lanterns. Also the fact that the lights persisted for hours would eliminate this explanation.

    The wind picks up at night in Washington. Lanterns would be blown further away and simply disappear. They wouldn’t do what this person is describing. People see these lights all the time and still they are unidentified. It is too bad a drone couldn’t be sent up with a camera attached to get a close up. That is the only way to really know just what they are.

      Yes, I have rescinded my conclusion that the objects were lanterns. The witness viewed videos of Chinese Lanterns and stated that is not what was seen.

    It sounds like the same thing I seen on 04-01-2016 at 2:30 AM. I was a bright white object moving like a humingbird

    I saw erratic white lights many times as a kid in southeast MO in late 70’s and early 80’s. The hummingbird analogy is a good one. The ones I saw would move in a totally erratic pattern, similar to someone playing with laser pointer. Sometimes that would move from one horizon to the other, starting and stopping instantly. I am still baffled by what I saw back then, and sad I no longer see them.

    I saw exactly the same in Fredericton, NB. I was sitting on my patio around 10:00 PM and I saw 3 lights bouncing same way! It’s like it wasn’t real. I couldn’t understand what I was seeing. I was not able to film anything because my device for some reasons, ended up not working good. I was the only one that saw these lights around here. It makes me feel better to know that I am not alone. It was a pretty freeky experience for sure. I would so much like to know more about these lights. People seem to notice them more and more! It is a good thing because until they don’t see some won’t want to try to believe that there is something out there! For sure we would be selfish to think that we are alone. Happy UFO search.

      Hi: Thanks for sending your report. What was the date of your sighting?

      I live in Seattle Washington. My daughter and I last night we’re looking up at the sky at about 10 o’clock and there was a bright light. It looked like a star, but it was zigzagging around slowly. It would get dimmer at some points and brighter than others and it was moving from one place to another. At some point and it seemed to be hovering and checking things out and others at one point it actually flashed a little blue and red light, but only once. We stared at it for hours and watched it move across the whole sky. We actually called the police and reported it. I have video to prove it.
