Location: Kirkland/Kenmore, WA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:14 minutes
15-20 orange spheres floating in triangular patterns in the night sky would disappear in peculiar ways, and sound was suppressed.

My girlfriend and I (during our college spring break) were driving near my home in Kenmore, WA, at around 9:50 PM. All of a sudden, we spotted strange lights overhead. We started freaking out because of how eerie these lights looked, and we opened the doors and got out of the car several times to take pictures and look at the lights. They were orange and very illuminated, sphere shaped, and were "floating" in a certain pattern in the sky. They seemed to be clustered into triangular formations, 3 in each triangle. All in all, around 15 lights were seen, maybe more, and no more than 7 or so lights at any given time.

The lights vanished at different places, and when I say "vanished," I don't mean they simply faded instantaneously. When they would disappear, my girlfriend and I could both clearly see the back of each light when the front would vanish, almost like they were "sucked into a portal." While that sounds corny, it's the only analogy I can really think of. During the entirety of the sighting, all sound was noticeably quieter, almost as if it were being suppressed, with the exception of an odd rippling sound coming from an unknown source. The window on the driver’s side of my 2006 Trailblazer wouldn't roll down during the sighting, and has been faulty since. A plane was spotted flying near the lights during the middle of the event, and about a minute or two after the last light disappeared, another plane flew in the direction the lights were headed, this time at a speed faster than a plane normally flies. All of the lights were going exactly west, towards the! Puget Sound. The final lights were seen shortly after 10:00 PM.

Throughout the encounter, both I and my girlfriend were freaking out. My girlfriend was scared during the entirety of the sighting, and I was on edge as well. While neither of us have any background or extensive knowledge about any types of aircraft, we both agreed we had never seen anything like it. I have one good video taken via snapchat, and while it shows several of the lights, it doesn't even come close to what the real encounter was like. During the video, you can see one of the lights "accelerate" as some of the lights would do, then disappear.
