Duration: 25 Minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|Extremely bright light that would fade in and out at high velocity in apparent sporadic tracks over the Pacific Ocean
I was operating an aircraft at 39,000 feet over the Pacific Ocean on the F Tracks between Hawaii and California flying eastbound roughly 100nm west of FLITY intersection (N29.26* W131.02*) at 1200 GMT (Night time over the Pacific) when we noticed a very bright light that would appear to fade into view and move at a high rate of speed in what appeared to be various north/south south/north tracks with a slight perception of an elliptical orbit. The object would appear for about 10-20 seconds and would fade away before re-appearing in another 5 - 60 seconds. At one point there were two of these objects which appeared to operate in formation and also in opposite track directions. This happened repeatedly for about 25 minutes. The objects appeared to be at a very high altitude from our vantage point at 39,000 feet where we were above all of the weather over the Pacific Ocean. Multiple aircraft in our vicinity also noticed the objects and discussed what we were seeing over the air to air frequencies for Oceanic crossing (121.5 MHz and 123.45 MHz). The objects appeared to be operating at altitudes well above what conventional known civilian and military aircraft typically operate at and led some of the observers to question if they were in fact in orbit.
