Duration:2-3 minutes
Three intensely glowing orange spheres seen. After they past where I was standing, glowing stopped but outline of craft still visible.

At 10:46 PM, my husband and I were driving home from watching fireworks. We live in a quiet area, fairly well wooded, in a suburban/rural setting, 15 miles east of Seattle. We live in an area called Union Hill which is 500 feet above sea level and is a hill top above the small city of Redmond, Washington.

We were almost home, a neighborhood with most homes on one acre plots. I was watching out the passenger side window of the car when I saw a large firework explode. Beside it I saw an immensely, intense glowing orange light, spherical shape, almost like a fireball. I told my husband to immediately stop the car and back-up. He did and I jumped out of the car and clearly saw a bright, bright, bright orange ball. They were off toward the eastern sky, not too far off as they appeared in the same proximity of where I had just seen the firework explode. (They were not directly overhead.) Followed close behind was a second orange sphere, identical to the first, and! following the driving line of the first ball. Then, trailing just slightly further behind, was a third sphere. All identical in color. The most unbelievable, intense glowing orange I have ever seen.

My husband was on the driver side and keep telling me to take picture. I wanted to but just felt that if I moved my eyes the objects would be gone before I could figure out how to get a photo. I watched for maybe 30 seconds. All three looked like they were glowing hot. Once they passed us I could still see them flying but they no longer glowed. I could see almost like an outline of the ball, faintly defined. It was as if the glowing part was in the front of the object but the backs were dark. And then they were gone.

My husband says he never really saw them. But it was like nothing I have ever seen before. And clearly they were not fireworks.
