Sighting Reports 2010

5 or 6 Bright Red Lights in Triangular Formation Seen in Night Sky

Edmonds is About 20 Miles North of Downtown Seattle.
Edmonds is About 20 Miles North of Downtown Seattle.

Date of Sighting: March 13, 2010
Time of Sighting: 7:30 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Edmonds, Washington (See Map)

Description: I just saw about five or six bright red lights south of Edmonds/Lynnwood, Washington. I went out to the front of my house to take a better look, then came in and went out on my back deck. In that amount of time (less than 1 minute) the bright lights were not where I last saw them. I looked up and they were actually almost right above me (to the north). They did not appear nearly as bright when they were above me, instead appearing as a faint globe. I saw one just as it disappeared behind a tree and then realized there were three more in a triangle shape (one globe at each corner of a triangle). I saw the lights in this configuration when they were moving in a northern direction toward Everett, Washington. The globes almost looked like balloons that I could barely make out when they were above me, but did not behave as such as they held their triangular formation with no variance and all moved smoothly at an equal speed. It was strange that they were hard to see as they were above me and moving north because when they were south of me, I estimate around the Northgate area of Seattle they were EXTREMELY bright. I am not sure what I just saw, but it is one of the strangest sights I've ever witnessed.

Note: A check of winds aloft shows that winds were light from the Southeast at the surface, but increasing to around 30 mph in the lower 1,000 feet of the atmosphere. Wind directions gradually changed to the south-southwest in the lower 1,000 feet above the ground. This means that the objects (lights) were moving with the wind. This does not mean that the objects were balloons or other flotation devices, but that the possibility exists.
