A husband and wife called the Hotline at 2042 hrs., February 06, to report a sighting in the vicinity of their farm, located somewhat east of the Spokane River, approximately 3 miles northwest of Spokane, WA. Between 7:30 and 8:00 p.m they were outdoors feeding their animals, when they observed three unusual lights "in a horizontal orientation." As the husband and wife watched the lights, they appeared to shift position such that two of the lights remained close together, while the third light moved off some distance from the others.
The couple watched the three objects in the night sky for approximately five minutes, at which time they observed two jet aircraft fly into the area from the southwest. (Fairchild AFB is located to the south and west of Nine Mile Falls, approximately 15 miles from the town of Nine Mile Falls, WA.) The two aircraft appeared to fly generally toward, and around, the three lights, at which point the three lights moved off to the east, and disappeared over the eastern horizon.
