Location: Hoquiam, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 15 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
7 fireball UFO crafts pass over Hoquiam.

I first saw 2 orange lights flying from the east that started changing directions as if flying in formation. 2 more sets of 2 fireball type crafts, then became visible, all moving west at first, next to each other, then moving behind each other, before shooting straight up into space.

At that time, 3 others were watching with me. It was only then that I was able to get video of the last one, as it passed overhead and disappeared into the black sky.

There was no sound from any of the crafts.

A couple minutes later I witnessed military jets patrolling grid patterns.
