|Bellingam 5 Craft Amber Formation 2000ft est. elevation, no noise.
Stepped out onto back deck of my home in city of Bellihgham. Noticed the Moon to south. Turned to East and saw a slow moving amber light(possibly flickering but mostly solid) craft headed in North-South orientation. I mean slow like a single prop Cessna that is just taking off from the ground, pretty slow. But these craft were fairly high up. I began to see another craft of a similar character emerge from the heavy cloud layers, just behind the other one, maybe like a 2-3 second count behind the first one. Then another one, and another one. All told I counted 5-6 craft, in an F-shaped formation (with the first craft solo), all traveling at the same speed and with no noise whatsoever. This is why I felt these craft were unusual as the cloud layer is not that high, estimated lower than 2000 feet. I am basing this elevation on how these clouds were at or near the height of local Chuckanut Mountain (about 1600 feet) which I am familiar with. Also, the f! light pattern is not a local flight pattern at all, and the military jets that do come into Bellingham are quite loud. These craft were entirely unique and stealthy.
