Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:8 seconds
Summary : Looked up in the sky in a S-SW direction. Noticed 2 "stars" that were moving together at the same speed. They traveled for about 3 seconds and then they both dimmed away.

Upon looking into the sky in a S-SW direction I first noticed 2 objects that looked like stars or satellites moving together at the same speed. They were high up in the sky at about the 10-11 o' clock position. They were moving about the same speed a satellite would appear to be moving. They were bright white and moved in a downward westerly direction and then somewhat rapidly dimmed out completely. Then I noticed a brighter star about a full moons distance away from the last position of the other two. This was was much brighter and slowly moved in a downward westerly direction and it also slowly dimmed out and dissappeared. I made a few calls to 911 and the FAA and no one had hear anything about this sighting. I then called the King 5 TV news tip line and talked to a lady who said that they were just starting to recieve calls about some weird lights in the sky. She contacted me later in the evening -9:30pm- and told me that qiute a few people called in to report this. They were unable to come to any conclusions as to what this may have been.
