4 orange lights in big dipper moving in formation, in circles then dispersing.
7:20 PM Port Angeles, WA. Port Angeles, Washington has so little light pollution that the night sky pops unlike anywhere else I have been. In the Big Dipper’s ladle, I saw 4 orange lights. The stars were a white/blue mix, so the orange lights stood out. One light was at 12oclock, one at 7oclock and 2 at 4oclock very close. Those 2 chased each other in a circle, like a dog chasing its tail, very quickly. I know nothing that man has made that could do that.
I watched for around 5 minutes, then the one at 12oclock went nw/up from its position, the one at 4oclock went south and the 2 chasing each other weren’t able to be seen.
I threw my trash away and I looked back up and they where gone, the other 2 moving away from each other out of the big dipper.
I went in, googled orange lights in sky, found nothing good and texted my friend. She told me to report it here and I am.
I am a college educated (BA History), age 47, male, veteran of the us army.
