UFOINFO Online Sighting Report
Location: Sumner, Washington, USA
Number of witnesses: 4
Number of objects: 4 to 5
Shape of objects: Light only
Could your sighting be a UFO balloon/lantern?: Not Applicable
Weather Conditions: Slightly cloudy, large pockets clear
Description: Zigzagging lights, 4 to 5 of them, first saw 1 then as continued to observed noticed the additional 3 to 4. The light would zig zag,not keep same trajectory, very high altitude, did not get further away or closer (such as an airplane at very high altitude doing manuevers) also it would stop and then make you think it was a star for a few then go again. At one time, 2 came at each other then circled around each other then went fast in opposite directions.
It had been dark about 2 hours, it was about 8pm (pst) we were late leaving a park and I was laying on the ground looking up at the sky, I was the first to notice 1 then called my daughter's attention to it when we realized there were more than one. I realized we were not looking at aircraft (as there were some that passed by and were clearly craft (3 lights, one white, one blue, one red with the standard aircraft blink pattern and those were at correct altitudes). I also differentiated what we were seeing from stars or satellites, it was the abrupt movements, change in direction and the solo light at such a high altitude, the eeriest about this was when they would stop in the sky, then move in a different direction. they were then definitely NOT any kind of balloon, lantern, rocket, etc.
There were light clouds that I am guessing were around 30-40K feet ceiling but there were spaces in between (like we could watch the moon for much of the time and used this to judge the speed of the cloud movement against what we were observing happening. We went home and retrieved two additional witnesses, returned to the park with a telescope. We were unable to get it into the telescope view however, the witnesses also confirmed what we were seeing. It is now 1:35am on the 17th, cannot view anything from my vantage point now as I am at home and there is too much light, fog and clouds.
