Sighting Reports 2009

Four See 6 Bright Lights in a Straight Line in Evening Sky

Date of Sighting: January 17, 2009
Time of Sighting: 6 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Bothell, Washington (Suburb to East of Seattle)

Description: My husband, myself and 2 friends were standing on my back deck in Bothell Washington on January 17th, 2009 around 6 PM. While looking towards the East we noticed 6 bright lights in a straight tightly formed line in the sky. Over the period of about 10 minutes we watched these lights move in ways that a normal aircraft would not be able to move. We never heard any kind of engine noise that would indicate they were planes. I was just wondering if anyone else had reported seeing these lights or if we were in fact seeing planes flying in formation? With the way these lights were moving I would be hard pressed to believe this was a standard aircraft.

Note: The witness wasn't explicit about the motion of the lights, but apparently felt that they moved in an "unconventional" manner. I have no explanation for the lights. There was another sighting of lights in the eastern sky on the same night in Sequim, Washington (to the Northwest). However, this sighting occurred over 5 hours later. It is not known if the two sightings are related.
