Multiple, unilluminated high-speed craft flying over Spokane in early morning of 9/20/02.

At 4:51 A.M. (PST), I was looking at a cluster of stars just ahead of the constellation of Orion. There is a group of 6-8 stars that are clustered very close together and I was trying to see how many I could count. I was facing south (though I was looking straight up) and the full moon was low in the horizon in the southwest.

Suddenly, going from North to South came three objects streaking across the sky. There were no lights, though the objects were whitish-grey in color. They were not illuminated. They were definitely not birds. Birds flap their wings and cannot completely go across the sky from horizon to horizon in 5 seconds. These things were moving at supersonic speed, faster than any fighter ever flown on this planet and were slower than shooting stars, somewhere between shooting star and supersonic fighter (speed-wise). Suddenly, the middle object shot left, then right again, splitting the other two. No craft on earth can make that turn at those G-forces. All three objects were gone within 5 seconds. It was the damndest thing I've ever seen. These were not lights, nor even lighted craft; these were craft that were illuminated only by moonlight. They were solid yet there was no trail left and no sound.
