Two Objects in late afternoon, camouflaging themselves in the clouds, translucent, traveling east above 45th ave., then north, then rapidly east toward mountains. Could move in all directions in darting motions.

When I was approximately 10 years old, my mother and I witnessed two objects traveling above us as we were driving on 45th ave. in Everett east toward I-5. They were above us darting just under the clouds and traveling slightly faster than us. I remember thinking that their shape was like the paper airplanes I used to make with pointed fronts, like elongated triangles, but they were translucent and the light reflected off them, though they looked like they were projecting cloud-like images on their surface. As we turned north onto I-5, they flew over the freeway, still just under the clouds and east, then turned north also and flew at about our same speed for about 5 minutes. Then when we were between Everett and Marysville, they shot east toward the mountains at a highly accelerated rate. It was so fast that it took only maybe 2 seconds for them to disappear from sight. We never reported it because we had no proof, but after listening to a radio show about the UFO center I was encouraged to give my account. We really aren't even sure of the year let alone the time and date. I just remember that it was not very cold, a partially cloudy, partially sunny day. Until I called the UFO center, I had never heard of anyone else seeing a UFO during the day. These two could travel forward, backward, and side to side with the ease of a hummingbird. My mother and I have talked about it through the years and told others, but never recorded it in writing until now. The objects didn't really changed color so much as the patterns they projected seemed to vary as they passed under the clouds so as to blend in.
