Occurred : 4/27/2014 23:00 (Entered as : 4/27/14 23)
Reported: 4/28/2014 8:32:57 AM 08:32
Posted: 5/2/2014
Location: Bellingham, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Orange lights in V formation and pairs.

The lights were orange and diamond or bird-shaped (the chevron shape a child would draw a bird.) The first pair we saw sort of chased each other and wiggled a lot, enough to make me think it might have been some space junk falling. But it went fast and straight into the distance.

Then there was a v formation of five or six going in the same direction on the same path about five minutes later. Then a lone one. Then another pair went by side by side.

And then ten or twenty minutes later they flew back from the direction they had gone in a bigger v formation, they were not going the same way they had come more of 90 degree angle from some farther away point.

We were star gazing on a roof when we spotted these. They were silent and moved about as fast as I've seen fighter jets go (Wich theses may have been?) They were silent though. No physics defying movements.

The formations were not perfect. It was really clear out. The lights seemed like they may have been heading for the bellingham airport, but they were very low and we saw no planes or plane lights or shapes connected to the moving lights.

The lights did not leave trails.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and she corrected the time of the sighting. She reports that it occurred at some time, she estimates, between 10:00 p.m. and midnight on Sunday night, April 27, 2014. PD))


Addendum to previous report: When witnessing the event I was laying on my back with my feet towards the south west. The lights crossed from left to right towards the north west. The final large V formation appeared from right to left many minutes later heading east.. These lights did not move directly above us as the first ones had but were towards the northern horizon and we sat up and looked behind us to watch it go. I would compare the path of their first trajectory to the trajectory of the final V as a 45 degree angle. The lights disappeared into the horizon before returning as he final V came into sight. The sighting took place on railroad avenue from the roof.
