Two Circular Uniformly Sized White Objects Travelling Parallel To The Horizon NNE of Yakima Washington

Here is what I saw: At 7:05 P.M.on 10-27-15, I was sitting outside on my patio in Yakima Washington. It was dark outside. The sky conditions were mostly cloudy and the nearly full moon had not yet arisen.

I saw two distinct white round objects about 30 degrees above the horizon in the NNW part ofthe sky. They were of the same light intensity and size. They moved for about two seconds almost parallel to the horizon in a ENE direction. One object moved in a somewhat skewed trajectory from the trajectory of the other. They were about the size in diameter 10 times the size of the average distant star. Their speed was about 10 times that of a big plane you would see going overhead. They traveled about 10 degrees across the sky in the two seconds.

There was no streaming breakup of material as a falling meteorite would show before it disintegrated. This sighting was certainly not two planes, and if it were meteors, they were travelling at the wrong angle to the earth (almost parallel) and were the most uniform equally sized circular meteorites I have ever seen.

I hope someone else witnessed this.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke at length via telephone with the witness, and he seemed to us to be quite serious and sober-minded. He described the event in a very eloquent, factual manner, and emphasized how bizarre the event looked to be. PD))
