A glowing orb hovered in the sky, shined on a light on my friend and I, then split into 5 separate orbs and zoomed off.

My friend and I are big outdoor enthusiasts and took a trip out to Olympic National Park back in August 2019. The night of our sighting we were camping at Kalaloch Beach. We walked down close to the water after dinner and were star gazing. We saw a ton of shooting stars, and even a few satellites, but what we saw next was nothing like those. It was a glowing orb that hovered for a couple minutes high in the sky. After staring at it for a couple of minutes it literally shined a directed light specifically at us. It didn't light up the sky or anywhere else but only shined on us. Not like a laser pointer but like a very narrow beam from a flashlight. It wasn't bright enough to hurt our eyes. My friend and I grabbed each other out of fear and disbelief. A few seconds later the orb split into 5 separate orbs. 4 of them flew off at a moderate speed, and the last one hovered for another minute or 2 then zoomed off at a rapid speed in the opposite direction.

I hadn't done much research about it afterwards, but today I saw 2 videos online that were very similar to what we saw. We are both healthy, active, late 20s males. I've always been a skeptic when it comes to UFO's or the supernatural, but there's no denying what we saw.

Another thing to note is that prior to our sighting that night we were blown away by the bioluminescent algae we saw all over the beach. The beach was glowing everywhere we stepped. It was incredible to see, but when we recall that night we hardly even think about the bioluminescent algae because of how incredible our UFO sighting was.
