Unknown lights over Mount Vernon, Washington.

I was going out to my car to put something in the trunk and I happened to look up in the sky. What I saw was this bright orange/red light slowly across the sky. I first thought that it was either a plane or a helicopter but then I noticed that there was no engine sound at all.

The next thing that I noticed was that there were things dropping from it like sparks that drop from a sparkler.

All of a sudden it made a 90 degree left turn ( toward me ) and just hovered there.

All that time I still did not hear any engine sound at all.

After about two minutes, it seemed like, the thing started to go straight up and the light faded and pretty soon I could not see it at all.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he sounded to us to be quite sober-minded. We strongly suspect that the report is accurate. PD))
