|Solid red light with a blinking green light in the sky in Lacey, WA.
I was out side the house and I looked up to see a red light that had evidently just pass over me from behind. Though I do not know how high it was, it did not seem to be be more than several thousand feet up. The fact that I heard no noise was strange. All the time the object was red with a green blinking light.
The object continued on a short ways in front of me(heading south)and then it hovered for a short while and then backed up, then in move to my right (west) and stopped again. I just went outside again and I note it is overcast outside. As the red light did not seem to be obscured at all, this seems to verify the fact that it could not have been to high in the sky.
Aside from me my mother also saw this after I called her out side. She is 93 and I am in my mid 50's. I am college educated and have seen aircraft all of my life. As Ft. Lewis in nearby, I am accustom to seeing the aircraft they operate a lot and this was nothing like like a helicopter. When it stopped there was no deceleration and when it moved again there was no acceleration. Though it's speed was about the same as a helicopter, the fact that it made no noise at all makes me think it was something else.
As it flew away, it was heading to the southwest towards the Olympia Airport.
