Four lights showing through overcast in a diamond shape patter. Then a a fifth light appears on right and drops in a curve toward ground.
This was just reported to me by my wife. I was watching a UFO documentary on the History channel (Sunday, 5Feb) and mention of a diamond pattern was made. My wife had walked in the room and heard that and stated "I saw that". When I asked what she was talking about she told me of a diamond shaped lights peering through the overcast sky, as she was outside looking up between treetops. She said her first thought was an aircraft, but noticed that the lights were stationary. While she continued to observe the lights, very quickly another light that was as bright as the four being observed, moved directly from the right of the diamond pattern, arced downards, and dropped straight down towards the ground (in a matter of seconds). She lost sight of that light when it went behind trees. She then looked back up and the diamond pattern was gone. She told me she was expecting to hear of an aircraft crash on the news latter that night. I asked her when it happened and she stated Wednesday of last week. I work at night and was not home at the time, but I do remember of a reporting over Seattle, presented by Peter Davenport on the Art Bell radio show. I went outside and had her point out to me where she saw the lights. My handheld GPS gave a compass reading of 168 degrees South/SouthEast from my location (N47.53.918/W122.11.989) and I scaled the position to be approx 30 degrees up from the horizon.
