Description: (Transcription of Discussion Between Witnesses When Lights Were Observed.)

00:20 Comment from Witness R.: This thing shot some fireworks out from it. About the size of a pencil-head held at arm’s length.

Light source appears slightly elongated vertically when first viewed.

00:52 Is it a hot air balloon or something?

Smaller glowing light separates from larger and falls apparently straight down. Smaller light source gets dimmer and continues downward.

01:03 Separated light no longer visible below main light source.

It’s moving slow.

Object becomes dimmer. R. apparently has hard time holding it in frame.

02:04 There it is. Object back in view on video.

02: 44 Another glowing object falls from the main light. There it goes again.

02:53 There’s a blinking light.

There appear to be two blinking light sources visible, blue and red. (It’s difficult to make out because of movement and limitations of the camera in these conditions.)

03:04 It’s hovering, R. It’s just standing there still.

03:48 It’s emitting another cinder. (Object not visible on screen.)

04:02 It’s pulsating.

S. comments she sees three coming out of the main object. (Object visible with pulsing light, but no smaller lights discernible.)

04:35 Red pulses of light seen coming from it.

R. states the object moves to the SOUTHEAST. The blinking is still visible.

05:40 I can barely see it now. (Not sure if there is anything on this portion of the video.)

06:04 It disappeared. It just disappeared.

06:12 It’s moving. It’s moving forward.

06:13 It’s cruising. It’s cruising. (No discernible image.)

06:50 It’s the same one I saw a month ago. It’s pulsating fast. Did you see it?

06:59 It’s going past the horizon.

07:10 It just went from a 60 degree angle to a 45 degree angle in a matter of seconds.

07:17 It just went behind the trees.

Comments: It is difficult to explain the contents of this video. Given that the video was taken at night makes it harder to analyze. I don't believe that the lights are fireworks eventhough it was taken on July 4. The location of the video is in close proximity to McChord Air Force Base. (See map above.) It is not known if the lights are related to military exercises.
