Location: Manzanita, OR
Shape: Fireball
Duration:approx.30min.
Three bright orange/yellow lights, appeared to meet up over the ocean and travel inland.

Our friends called and told us to go outside and see what we thought of what was in the sky. When we looked up to the Norhtwest sky we saw 3 bright gold/orangeballs of light, that appeared to be pulsing in brightness.They were in a triangle shape pattern and then would separate and move back together. We looked at them thru the binocculars and no shape could be recognized. One appeared to travel higher and to the north slowly , until we were unable to see it anymore.At the same time another bright light(ball ) was accending towards the other two..One of the two was also appearing to go higher and northward. The accending light ball was traveling rapidly , followed close by other. Whe they arrived at the position of the other one they stopped and waited until all had reached that level and did some formations, always returning to the triangular pattern.We never saw more than three at anyone time..we couted a total of 8 thru the 1/2 hr. we watched them. there was no noise and once they reach a certain level the movements were planned. we live on the Oregon coast and they appeared to come from the ocean (as far as direction goes..not from the land) It appeared they came from the area beyond the ocean , formed a group and slowly proceeded inland to the north.
