Three objects observed during Bellevue 4th of July fireworks display 2016.

Three objects observed during community fireworks display at downtown park with about 20,000 people in attendance. The fireworks display was towards the North of park, looking over to the East I seen a pair of green blinking lights just at edge of cloud ceiling (appeared to be hiding within clouds) was moving toward park. At first I though it was small plane, but then it stopped and was in a stationary position for about 2-minutes after which it flashed a row of red and then a row of yellow lights, alternating quickly back and forth between the two colors for a couple of seconds before returning to two blinking green lights. Then the object started moving slowly towards the South, and a second later it started traveling at the speed of a military jet, then slowed down to a stop just above the horizon from my point of view.

I then seen another pair of similar green lights flashing just inside the clouds above the crowd that was watching the fireworks, most! people seemed to be paying attention to the fireworks and might not have noticed the objects, or if they did they may have thought they were planes. The second object was stationed over the park in the clouds, the first object then came back towards the fireworks area and became stationary within the clouds, then a third object with a pair of solid red lights at of front with flashing green lights at rear appeared just south of the park and was stationary just below cloud level through out the fireworks display. It was interesting to see all three objects floating in the sky as if enjoying the fireworks. The two object closest to the fireworks display would move slowly then stop and move again from one side of the display to the other etc. The third object to the south remained in a stationary position throughout. The objects seem to be communicating by flashing their lights, the blinking lights were not constant, but seemed Morse code like. After the fireworks displ! ay, one object moved out towards the East and out of sight, an! d one mo ved out of sight toward the south then returned and appeared near another fireworks display five miles away wrapping up over Seattle where it stopped and sat for a minute, then quickly flashed alternating rows of red and yellow lights then resumed to flashing green lights and took off to the south at military jet speed. I do not know when the object with the solid pair of red lights left after the fireworks display were over because I wasn't paying attention to it at the time. There were no helicopter, jet or plane sounds during the event. I ruled out local drones because of the altitude and speed of the objects. They flew faster then a helicopter and local plane, traveling my guess would be, about a mile a second.
