Location: Bellevue, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Three bright lights in formation hovered, then moved slowly northweast and disappeared through the trees.

I watch the sky frequently and understand flight patterns from SeaTac, so I know when something's askew.

Tonight I watched three very bright white lights in formation hover above Lake Washington and travel very slowly northeast, which was not the prevailing flight pattern I had been watching today.

While I watched with binoculars, there was a red light in the middle that flashed intermittently, and I never saw any green light, even though the craft was relatively close, not more than 10 miles away.

I kept waiting for the white lights to break apart, as I've seen in videos and while they never did, the snail-pace speed and the behavior of this UFO was unlike the airplanes I have been watching and filming.

I also realized that I had not been able to get a good look at any of the planes tonight due to the cloud cover, while this craft was seen clearly.
