Location: Tacoma, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
the light was at a very high altittude, but had very distinctive colors, It was moving at a very high speed due to the distance covered

I thought at first it was a planet,but the lights and atmospher distortion did not fit that of planets I have observed. The colors of green red and yellow were distinctive. My husband was an Air Force navigator for 21 years and said it was not a planet, but an airplane coming into SeaTac airport. The light did not move as if it was on an approch. I observed it off our back deck between two trees that at distance of about 75-100 feet were about 3-4 inches apart. I watched thru binoclars because out telescope was not set up. The light took about 15 minutes to travel the three to four inch distance between the two trees. It was heading almost directly east from the northern view from my deck. It was quiet obvious from the light distortion and the time it took to cover the distance between the trees that it was at a very high altittude, and yet the colors were very distinct. I don't know what crafts that are up there to explain this light
