Huge Triangle shaped objects in formation over Port Orchard, WA.

On a clear evening, Big Dipper was very clear, my Dad and I were sitting around a campfire. He was sitting next to me and said “look” in a surprised and alarmed voice. I was looking down but looked up and saw a very huge formation of triangles. At first it resembled a flock of geese but immediately new that was wrong. It resemble a flock of geese because of it’s ‘V’ formation and the distance between the triangles was similar to the distance between geese.

The size was amazing. If I extend my arm and extend my hand it nearly took up my entire hand. There were 5 or 6 triangles on the left part of the ‘V’ and 5 or 6 on the other right hand part. Over to the right was another ‘V’ shape but further away or at a different angle. We only saw this object for 2-3 seconds. It was flying from east to west, almost directly over our heads.. Each triangle was the same shape and size. The size of each one is difficult to determine. I drive to Seattle Tacoma International airport frequently and when I see an airplane in the pattern I put my hand up in front of me to try to gauge the size in comparison. All the aircraft around Sea Tac appear to be small compared to these triangles. Both my Dad and I seemed to think the object was very high in the sky. My estimate is that each triangle was the size of 2-4 large aircraft nose to tail.

Each triangle was perpendicular to the earth. The entire formation moved as one and traveled sideways. Each triangle appeared to be separate. There was nothing visible that connected them. There was no apparent indication of movement. There was no sound. It seemed to move with great speed. From the time we first spotted it to when it left our field of vision was 3 seconds top. We could see it getting smaller as it flew towards the Olympic Mountains. We think it flew out of our sight. If so the speed would be incredible. We regularly see jets flying towards the north end of the mountains on their way to Asia. We see these aircraft for more than a minute. Port Orchard is approximately 30 miles from Sea Tac.

There were no lights we associate with aviation. The only light was a white-yellowish glow coming from each triangle. The glow was contained to the middle in a slight oval shape. Some of the light spilled over to reveal straight edges of the triangle. Each of the triangles had the same color and light amount.
