Duration:5 minutes
3 to 7 red lights in the night sky, moving independantly of eachother. Many miles away at a 60 degree angle from horizon.

It has been several years since the event so my memory of the specifics, such as date, time, and number of objects, is not clear. I was up in the Bremerton, Wa. area on a crystal clear night. It is not a big city area so there aren't many city lights to detract from the view of the sky. I was on the balcony of my apartment with my girlfriend just enjoying the evening and chatting when we both noticed several solid red lights in the sky about the size of 4 or 5 intense stars put together. They were very far away in the sky. I would say many miles away. They were far up in the sky, probably 60 degrees off the horizon. I do not remember the direction. And do not want to guess as it would be just that. They were, at times, in formation where they would be close together and then in a split second they would shoot off in different directions of no certain pattern or common distance. They moved with amazing speed, with no tail, and stopped on a dime and then would change direction effortlessly. It seemed they were covering great distances because they seemed so far away and would cover 10 t0 30 degrees of sky in a matter of a few seconds. Then as quickly as they'd separated they would one by one, in no certain order, come back together (not touching) again as if to huddle. They did not pulsate. They did not change shape or color. They did not seem to move any closer in our direction but for the most part seemed to travel on a constant plain of distance. They did however seem to move both longitudenally and latitudenally. Meaning that if someone a hundred miles away from my position was directly under them they may have appeared to have a change in depth perception. My first impression, as I mentioned to my girlfriend, was that we were witnessing and extra-terrestrial event. We were obviously surprised and in awe but not frightened. I am very much a pesemist when it comes to this sort of thing and tried in every way possible to figure a logical explanation (planes, helicopters, lasers,...etc.) but nothing I! 'd ever whitnessed made sense. I've only mentioned this to maybe 2 or 3 people and never reported it or followed up because I figured it was pointless. But I have never forgotten it. I've often wondered if there were any other whitnesses and only report it now because when I typed in "UFOs Washington" last week and found your site and saw the story about the mother and daughter and the red fireball it blew my mind. I felt like I should let you guys know. I don't know what you will do with this information but I hope it helps. I also wonder how you are able to determine if someone writing to you is telling the truth or fabricating a story. Please take this as the truth. I work in mainstream society and am very busy (I don't have time to write fairy tales on the internet). I would not share this with my associates as they would probably think I was nuts. I only do this now because it has always been stored in my memory since then and I never forget it and also because of the account I read in your site. I don't know if they're related but if they aren't it is a hell of a coinsedence.
