Location: Gig Harbor, WA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1-2 minutes
Bright lights/craft observed flying low over highway.

Driving east bound on highway 16 before the first Purdy exit nearing Gig Harbor on 8/22/13 around quarter til 21:00. Lights were at around a 50 degree angle ahead of me, flying towards me (heading north).

They started as two very bright lights, close together like headlights on a car about as wide as the full moon in the sky.

I continued to observe the lights for about a mile and a half down the highway (I was driving 65 mph) as I got closer and it larger until it passed directly over my head.

There were the two bright lights I witnessed on either side of the craft, with white lights visible underneath and another white light at the nose of the craft. I witnessed one flash of blue light near one of the white lights. It appeard triangular in shape, but it was after dusk so the shape was difficult to distinguish.

After it passed over me I lost sight of it because I was driving.

Wind was blowing WSW 1G08 at 249 ft. elevation.
