I live on the east side of the hill looking over the valley towards Duval Wa. and the Cascade mountains. Pulling the curtains closed for the night I looked out and into the the sky over the cascades. I do this habitually as we live under a commercial flight path and on a clear night you can sometimes see several commercial craft stacked & staggered. Low in the sky at an altitude of what my eyes told me was just a small cesna was a very bright erratically flashing light that seemed to be jumping up & down and from side and heading West sraight towards us! Yelled for my wife to come see. Stepped out the door & watched as it turned to the South and was obscured by the trees. This light was moving right along but I wouldn't say it was going faster than a conventional craft. A few weeks before this a navy jet, think they call them A6's flew over the valley only showing ulta bright strobs on the wing tips. This jet was so low you could not discern it from the trees untill it zoomed dirctly overhead. I thought at the time somebody must have thought it to be a ufo. It sure lit up the sky in an eerie way. This might explain the unidentified light I saw. OH yes, the flashing light made no sound I could hear.
