Reported: 2/9/1996 19:15
Posted: 11/2/1999
Location: Whidbey Island, WA
Duration: 5 min.
Five adults were witness to an object to what appeared to them to be "three diamonds in a row, moving in unison." in the western sky. The object(s) had flashing lights on it (them). They estimated the object's (apparent) length to be equal to 4-7 times the diameter of the earth's moon.

Even though they could not make out the shape of the object because of its distance from them, it appeared to be proceeding from north to south at a steady pace. It was midway (vertically) between Venus and the moon.

They were located on E. Milman Road on Whidbey Island when they observed the object(s) .
