Strange low flying lights over Seward Park in Seattle, Washington on March 25, 2009.

OK, this was a strange night. After walking my dog at Seward Park, we sat at the picnic table near the clay studio so my dog could have his treat break. It was about 8:00 p.m., the sun had already set and the stars were finally coming out. I'm fascinated with stars and as usual, I am looking up at the Big Dipper in the Northeast direction. As I glanced at the I-90 Bridge, a flash of light caught my eye above and north of me. I noticed that there was a small light followed by a larger light flying directly behind the smaller light, if I had to guess, the lights seem to be four blocks apart from one another, it was moving slowing to the east and it didn't seem to be more that 600-800 feet above the evergreen trees of the park. As I pondered where the these planes came from and why they were so low, I realized that they were too close to be flying behind one another. I noticed that they moved at the same speed and the distance between the two lights never shifted but remained straight across from one another. In addition, there were no strobe lights as there are on all airplanes and helicopter's (as far as I know) and the most amazing thing was that there was absolutely no sound at all. All this I described happened within a minute of me noticing the lights and I was chatting with my mom on the phone at the time and told her I was pretty sure I was seeing a actual UFO. Although it was not completely dark I could see there was no outline of a vehicle between the two lights, however, it was just too strange that the lights moved as if they were connected to something. The only example I can offer is this, if you see a ship on the ocean at night and there was a light on the front of the ship and another on the back of the ship, you would not see the ship but you’d know that there must be a ship out there because the light spacing never changes. I could see that the larger light was globe like with either vents of blue light or some feature that I was unable to clearly make out at t! he dista nce I was at. However, I could see there was something more to the light. As the UFO disappeared over the tree going east, my mom grabbed her camera and because her house sits on a hill over near the airport she was able to see the lights as I had described and she said that she could see them going a little below the tops of the Cascade Mountains going south. Then she lost them. A minute later she was again able to see the two lights heading south. They still appeared to be near the Cascade Mountains. I hope there was others who reported this because it was truly an amazing sight for me and I will always regret not carrying my camera or binoculars. The observer is an accountant.
