Pulsating bright green lights seen NorthWest of Bothell area. Number of lights would change from 1 to sometimes 4 or 5.

At approx. 10pm on 9-9-99 my neighbor asked me to come outside to see what she and her husband were watching. At first there was nothing there. Then, 2 or 3 bright (almost florescent) green lights would pulsate in the sky. They never appeared to move from the spot where they were, however the number of lights would change. Sometimes there would be only 1 and sometimes 3, 4 or 5. Then the lights would disapear altogether for a few seconds (15-20) and re-appear again. The neighbors had been watching this for about 10 min. before calling me outside. About 5 min. after that another neighbor came home and also witnessed the lights in the sky. This was a total of 4 people observing the lights. At 2 instances, there "appeared" to be a "beam" from the light to the ground (or vice-versa). The lights were quite high in the sky eventhough they were quite large. At times they appeared to be behind a portion of cloud as the view was hazey and dull, and then other times appeared bright and clear, as if it were in front of the cloud. There was absolutely no sound. The night was quiet and any sound would have been heard. We get quite a few commercial aircraft in the area, so am familiar with their lights and sound. Also get "copters" from Whidbey Island Base and are familiar with their sound. We are wondering if anyone else happened to see what we saw that night? Any suggestions as to what it was? Have never seen anything like it before.
