Location: Auburn, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:several hours
Lights in the western sky over Auburn, WA, night after night, not normal aircraft.

These lights have been appearing nightly for at least two years, beginning at about dark, in the sky either over western Auburn, or slightly farther west.

They are not conventional aircraft. They do not have any red/green running lights, they are much brighter usually, and often they flash brighter, systematically. They are composed of what appears to be either one, or as many as 3-4, bright white lights. They hang in the sky for several hours usually, sometimes moving short distances to the left and right (as viewed from east of them, on Lea Hill Road in Auburn), sometimes moving farther to the north.

There are normally three or four of these objects which appear at once. The normal air traffic in the area can be seen passing in front of them, and it seems to ignore their presence. Sometimes the objects appear to flash red or blue. They are almost always present for at least 2-3 hours, and sometimes have been present as late as 3 AM.

I am a professional UFO author, a witness of at least a half-dozen sightings of alien spacecraft during my life, and an abductee as well. I am not likely to misidentify conventional craft as a UFO. I am familiar with most types of military craft, including stealth craft and exotic craft.

I do not know what these craft are, but they cannot be conventional aircraft in my opinion due to their configuration of lights, motion in the sky, presence in the same location for so many nights, and the fact that they are clearly brighter than conventional aircraft’s white lights. They should easily be spotted by radar from Auburn airport, Boeing Field and Seatac.

As to the possibility that they could be drones, I tend to doubt that idea. There is no reason that I can think of for drones to take up the same position in the sky, night after night, for literally years on end, when there is nothing of particular interest happening in or around Auburn that anyone would have reason to go to so much trouble and expense to observe. They clearly are unconcerned about being seen, and usually just hang in the sky, moving short distances roughly north or south and then returning to where they were initially.

Could they be some type of alien craft? I cannot answer that question, I only know they appear to be distinctly different in appearance to conventional or military aircraft I am familiar with. Someone surely will be able to identify them, from Seatac or Boeing ATC centers. Whether they will do so honestly is another question.

((NUFORC Note: It seems noteworthy that NUFORC has received no other reports about the alleged, nightly sightings. We will encourage the witness to obtain high-quality photos of the alleged objects. PD))
