Summary : 5 objects seen over Sumner WA June of 1967. Objects hovered very close to ground and shined lights.

My grade school friend and I witnessed these objects when we were 11 years old. We were at Fred's parents house (not his real name), planning to sleep in their front yard. I know this is a long time to go before reporting this to anyone, but I did not know where to till I saw this site on the Internet. We were on the front lawn about 2100 in our sleeping bags checking out the sky, valley ect. My friends house has a panoramic view of trhe Puyallup Valley, Orting Valley, and Mt. Rainier. We were startled to see a formation of lights (v shaped, 5 objects) moving from the direction of Auburn (to the north) to dontown Sumner. Te objects were orange in color with a sort of bluish aura or halo around them. They were silent. When they reached the city, they dimmed but were still visible and began to shine lights on the ground and houses. they were all spread out in the south east part of the city shining lights. Again, there was no sound. After about 10-15 minutes of this, they reformed their v shaped formation and flew directly over our heads (height was hard to judge) fairly slowly, then accelerated out of sight towards Tacoma. there are more storie from this period of time in the Puyallup Valley. I don't know if you or anyone else has investigated this period of time (1961-1970) in the south Puget Sound, but I have other stories from people who's neighborhoods were visited, where craft had landed (seen by officials) and other reports of "craft".
