String of pearls witnessed over Washington State

Hello,,, This is the first time I have ever reported anything like this,,but I wanted to forward this expeirence, I know that what we saw wasa not an EXTRAterristrial vehicle vehicle,although. I have read alot about the "string of pearls" exhaust contrails left by possible expieramental aircraft. Tonight,,we witnessed 2 contrails alongside each other,,demonstrating the "string of pearls" type exhaust. Behind them aprox. 3 miles was a "chase" plane. The three crafts where heading from the south,very high altitude,towards Seattle,,"Madigan". Lead aircraft had not lights,,,chase plane had white flashing lights. Thought you might be interested. There is a site that really wanted to hear about any sightings like this,,although now I can't locate it.. Take Care Joe
