Reported: 7/5/2013 1:35:29 AM 01:35
Location: Bremerton, WA
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|Red/orange lights over Kitsap County
The neighbors behind my house were lighting off fireworks and two red-orange lights caught my eye. They were several miles away and I thought might be airplanes but they were very close together. Thought they might be helicopters but they veered towards and away from each other. There's no way (at least I'd hope not) that pilots would fly in such a pattern. After about a minute, one headed north and the other towards me and they both disappeared.
About another minute later, 2 more appeared at about the same place I saw the first ones. Same red/orange color and similar flight pattern, however, they both headed northward (away from me) and disappeared at the same time.
It might have been about 5 minutes after that I saw another one. It traveled the same pattern but after about 30 seconds it went upward and disappeared.
The night had scattered clouds but where I saw these things I also saw clear sky and stars.
I grew up in Southern California near an Air Force Base and I am fairly confident in my ability to identify air craft and lights on air craft. What I saw tonight was one solid light with no visible craft/attachments. No discernable lights on wings or different colors. They were too low to be satellites.
