Location: Moses Lake, WA
Shape: Changing
Duration:apx. 5 min.
3 blue/green lights (sometimes merged into one) moving absolutely silent across the sky from apx. west to east

It was really hot and muggy that night and my husband and I went outside to cool off at around 3 am on Tuesday morning. We thought maybe we would see some of those meteors from the Perseid shower, but instead we seen an object that appeared to change from a bright green to a dimmer blueish green and then suddenly changed to 3 seperate lights that stayed in a triangle formation and after a few seconds rejoined to become one object again. We watched this object(s) for I'd say about 5 minutes. The object(s) made absolutely no sound. We have many aircraft fly over, since Japan Airlines trains their pilots here and we also have alot of military traffic and the occasional life flight chopper, all of which however make lots of noise and the blinking lights of those aircraft are unmistakable. As to what those silent lights in the nightsky could have been - your guess is as good as mine! Did you get any other reports about this from our area?
