|Small bright light observed flying in close proximity to what looked like a plane.
After concluding a game of golf (Mt. Douglas Golf Course), my brother and I were returning to our car when to the east approximately 30 degrees above the horizon and 10 - 15 km away we witnessed what looked like a plane (typical cylindrical shape) flying in a southerly direction towards the Olympic Mountains. Obviously a plane flying along the Straight of Georgia in a path towards Seattle is normal, however the 'plane' was quite low in the sky (approximately 2000m) AND HAD ANOTHER CRAFT VERY CLOSE IN FRONT AND ABOVE THE NOSE OF THE PLANE SEEMINGLY GUIDING IT. The secondary craft was small...circular and white and it was approximately 50-100 metres in front and above the nose of what I believed to be a plane. For the duration of the event, the secondary craft remained at the same distance from the 'plane' except for a brief moment when the gap seemed to close...this may be due to a quick manouvre to the southeast; however the original distance between the two craft was soon recovered. After observing the craft for a few minutes, the craft were soon too far away to be seen in great detail, so my brother and I drove away.
