Location: Spokane, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
3 bright orange lights at low altitude over northwest Spokane.

While walking to my brothers house, I was north on 2400 n. Belt walking past a man walking his dogs. At at about 30 degrees to my left (slightly northwest of my position, I observed three orange lights all equal in size fairly large, about one quarter the size of a full moon. They looked like flares but did not move for about 20 seconds.

I called my brother and told him to go outside to see them and by then one went north/northwest, one went west, and one went east.

My brother was able to momentarily see the one traveling east but seemed to go up and disappear quickly. It was around 9:11pm to 9:12pm and were probably between 200 to 400 feet up above the area of Audubon Park when first seen.

No noise was heard, my brother observed the eastbound one straight over his house before it went up and disappeared.


The date error i made was reported as occurring in Spokane on 8/28/11 at 21:12. The time is correct but the sighting date was actually 8/27/11.
