This is to verify ((name deleted)) story previously submitted.. We were camping out on the river by Salmon La Sac, Wa on Friday night. It was a brilliant night, milky way very visible. Sitting by the river in almost complete darkness, the moon had not risen yet, we noticed a very bright white ball hovering to the south of us. Initially we thought it was venus, due to the fact it was due south, but when we cinally focused on it (2 minutes) it became apparent it was moving downward to the peak of this mountain. We then observed it after 1 minute, explode non-violently into two smaller spheres, and float around. They moved toward the very top of the mountain when a craft appeared heading toward it. No noise, not fast, almost as if it was coming into land on or in it. The craft was about the size of a bus from our vantage, as we could not really see the craft, we could only see the four lights under it. None of the lights signified it as a airplane, as none were blinking. The lights were 2x2 and were glowing a very magnificient orange. The craft got closer, to the two spheres, and they both went over the mountain, out of our view. Then a second ship, identical to the first, made the same trajectory towards the location of the others, and almost zig zagged to manuever over the peak of the mountain. There were other sightings that evening from others at the camp, but this was the only one I was privy to. This location is far from any municipal or federal airport. Quiet an amazing scene from a previous non-believer.
