Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
bright light that did not move at all. 1 bright light turned to 3 distinguishable lights. dissappeared suddenly

Driving from work in downtown Redmond, WA at 12:25 am. Saw a bright light with a slight glow in the sky. Direction was SSE from my vantage point. I cannot judge the distance to the light. Thought initially it may have been a meteorite re-entering atmosphere. However, it did not move at all and there was no trail. As I drove, the light appeared to stay in same exact place. Thought could be small aircraft or helicopter, but there were no visible nav marker lights. LIght did not seem to be consistent with helicopter search lites. Light was yellow-orange. As I continued to drive home up a hill overlooking the valley, the light seemed to continue in the same spot. While hanging there, the one bright light rotated or otherwise seemed to become 3 distinguishable lights of the same color. Trying not to crash, I decided to turn around so I could drive back a few hundred yards to a spot where I could see the light(s) clearly. I pulled off onto a side street and turned around. When I! started back down the hill the light(s) were gone. As I drove around (including getting on the 520 highway), I noticed an inordinate amount of police cars(8)driving around rather quickly. I looked for another 15 minutes and did not see the lights again.
