MANY PEOPLE ON DOCK WAITING FOR FIREWORKS DISPLAY SEE A RED CIRCLE HOVERING AND THEN MOVE SLOWLY WEST.

ON 04JUL95 I AND MY FAMILY HAD GONE TO THE WATERFRONT AREA OF TACOMA TO WATCH THE ANNUAL FIREWORKS DISPLAY. AT ABOUT 22:00 WE NOTICED (AS DID SEVERAL OTHER PEOPLE THERE) A RED CIRCLE HOVERING JUST IN THE CLOUD LAYER. THERE WERE TWO SEMI-CIRLCE LIGHTS ON THE OBJECT AND THEY FLASHED AT DIFFERENT FREQUENCIES. THE OBJECT HOVERED FOR ABOUT A MINUTE, THEN IT MOVED THROUGH THE CLOUD LAYER TO HOVER CLOSER. AFTER A FEW SECONDS IT BEGAN TO MOVE OFF SLOWLY TO THE WEST. WHILE IT WAS STILL ON THE WESTERN HORIZON (ABOUT 1 MINUTE LATER) TWO FIGHTER TYPE AIRCRAFT MOVED ACROSS THE SKY FROM EAST TO WEST ON APPEARENTLY THE SAME COURSE AS THE CIRCLE OBJECT.
