Location of Sighting: Bellevue, Washington
Date of Sighting: October 5, 2017
Time of Sighting: 9 PM PDT
Description: On Thursday, October 5th 2017, at approximately 9:00 pm my wife and I were sitting in our third (top) floor condominium which overlooks Lake Sammamish with a 11 degree North view. My wife noticed two aircraft hovering over the lake. We both got up and went out onto our deck and I observed the following:
Two aircraft were hovering at approximately a 45 degree angle above the lake. Both aircraft had bright red lights in a triangular pattern on their under carriage.
The aircraft maneuvered forward and backward, up and down quickly and made no sound. After approximately 30 seconds, both aircraft ascended rapidly and simultaneously, turning off the red lights simultaneously and disappeared. It was difficult to judge the distance from our deck to the aircraft. They looked like they were within a quarter mile.
