Multiple Bright Orange High Altitude Lights Seen Moving in Incredible Ways in Early Morning Night Sky.

At 6:30 am on Sunday October 6th, 2013, my Girlfriend and I had just returned home in Snohomish from visiting friends in Seattle, WA. It was a beautiful and perfectly clear night sky just before sunrise and I took notice of the familiar constellations above me.

Within seconds, I noticed that a few of the lights were extra bright looking and even looked a bit orange in color. I focused on the brightest one directly above me and I could see that it was moving very slowly and steadily across the sky. I got my Girlfriend's attention and she started watching with me. At this point I thought it could be a an airplane at high altitude or a satellite but I continued to follow it with my eyes. Not a second later, it accelerated to at least ten times it's speed and shot across the sky. Without slowing down, it then took a seemingly impossible right angle turn. The glowing orange object then slowed down and returned back in the direction it came from and then took off! at vertical angle directly out into outer space. We followed it for twenty seconds or so until its light faded completely.

We then scanned the sky for other bright star-like lights and found that there were at least three more visible that were behaving in the same way. They were moving about the sky in ways that were not possible by regular known aircraft and were moving at incredible speeds. They were also accelerating and changing direction in ways that I have never seen. It was quite clear that they were guided by intelligence. This went on for about twenty minutes until the Sun started rising and the lights faded into the blue morning sky. All four of the observed UFOs were at seemingly high altitudes and were witnessed very clearly by both myself and my Girlfriend.
