Location: Kennewick, WA
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
On the night of April 11, 2011, at 10:30 pm I observed what I believe to be a UFO over the Columbia River. I just happened to be looking out at the sky when I observed 3 large white orbs stacked vertically in a tight formation. They were travelling east to west at a very high rate of speed. The lights were round and bright white in color.

When I first saw them I was looking northeast and watched as they crossed in front of me, now looking north and watched as they headed northwest, disappearing out of sight looking west.

I live in Kennewick, along the river, and from my viewpoint the angle of height was approximately 30 degrees. From my viewpoint, looking east, where I first saw it, to looking west, where they disappeared. Horizontally, the angle was approximately 100 degrees of view. It took approximately 10 seconds from the time they first came into view until the time they disappeared. I noted that the bright white lights never blinked like an aircraft would. Nor were there any jet engine sounds.

These objects appeared to be close to where my house is and appeared to be following the Columbia River at a low altitude and a very high rate of speed. My view was unobstructed.

I certify this to be true and correct under penalty of perjury.
