Posted: 1/28/1999
Location: North Camano Island - Buena Vista area- above Utsalady Bay, WA
Shape: Formation
Duration:20-60 seconds
Summary : Double line of bright, ember hot colored lights. From W. to E. Most amazing was the dark grey colored object in the wake of these. Looked like zepplin, going as fast as the lights. Blinked out one by one including the grey object. Object was illuminated by these lights only - no internal or external lights of it"s own. No sound or only faint hum. Were we the only ones who saw this special object? Still having a hard time believing this part of what I clearly saw.

The lights were numbered in the dozens, bright hot, ember or candle glow colored. ran in a fast parrallel line from the West toward the East. We are high above the water of Utsalady and Skagit Bays with a clear, unobstructed view across Skagit Bay and northward toward Anacortes. Appeared to be closer then is being reported. If these were high in the atmosphere, then the grey object that was moving with these lights had to be hugh. Because it was close enough to be illuminated by these lights. Only a jet could have kept pace with these lights, I saw no wings, no undercarriage as on a blimp/zepplin. ((Name deleted)) is an active 71 year old male.

Who has worked in several jobs, including as a Flight Attendant for 18 years, now retired. We both have several years of College and are life long readers/seekers of knowledge. We are both excellent observers in different ways, fo! cusing on different items. ((Name deleted)) in particular is a sky watcher and has been since her early years. We forwarded an email to KOMO TV minutes after seeing all of this if you care to check what we first wrote. It has taken me several days to decide to report this to you, but I know I should because there was something else there, more than what has been reported..
