Location: Spokane, WA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 minute approximately
January 24, 2007, flying West to East over Spokane, WA, 7 elongated triangles following a bright sphere flew over with no sound.

At approximately 4:48 PM on January 24, 2007, Wednesday, a total of eight UFO's flew overhead from West to East in the clear sky of Spokane, Washington. The first that went over was a large (about the size of my thumb nail) and extremely bright spherical light, then 7 elongated triangular flying objects flew over. The triangles were as long as my thumb (held at arm's distance). The edges were illuminated and showed depth.

There were 6 amber colored lights under each one of the triangles. There was no sound. This occurred during the fireworks display for the opening ceremonies of the United States Figure Skating Championship. The fireworks had just started, perhaps about a minute into the display when up above the arrow head shaped craft flew over following the sphere of extremely bright light. The first triangle went over, then the second, then the third turned sharply to the left then the right, the fourth one went over, then the fifth, the sixth and when the seventh one went over itchanged shape. The moment I said to the witness with me that these were not a flock of birds.they transformed to a flock of birds in front of our eyes. Soon after the event, perhaps a minute or two, an unexpected heavy fog set in over the city and above us.

The witness with me is a trained observer who has worked for a major medical facility for over 23 years in security. I am the daughter of two law enforcement officers and I do not seek out attention for any reason.

((NUFORC Note: We know the source of this report quite well, and we consider her to be an exceptionally reliable witness. We hope to receive a second report from the second witness. PD))
