2 Triangle Shaped, Low Flying, Silent Craft over Seattle- 9/25/00

On the evening of Sept. 25, 2000 at 8:15p.m. I was driving North bound at 25mph on a side street in Shoreline, WA (N. of Seattle) when 2 triangle shaped craft flew directly over my car headed North. This was in a wooded residential area on a little street that is only about 6 blocks long, end to end. There were no other cars on the street except mine, which is not uncommon since the street just leads to another road that is a dead end. The craft had very bright green lights in the front and very bright, bright white lights in the back, one on each corner. The white lights were so bright they illuminated the back of the craft and you could see it was solid across the back. The green lights in front (one at the point and one or two on each side very close to the front point) were also bright and emitted a green glow downward as they passed over my vehicle. It was similar to witnessing a traffic accident where the crash may have only taken 1 or 2 seconds, but everything seemed to move in slow motion. Looking out my windshield, first I saw the green glow from above, then the green lights as the first aircraft passed over my car. I thought it was a plane that was going to land in the street and I slammed on my brakes and the green and white lights from the 2nd craft passed over my car and I realized they were 2 jet like aircraft, except they were triangle shaped and I said out loud "What is that?" They appeared to be flying in formation and reminded me of the way the Blue Angels fly, so close together. The 1st one was in front of and a little to the left of the 2nd one. (The right 1/2 of it was in front of the 2nd one) They flew very fast, very close together, had very, very, bright, bright lights, were just above the tree tops and were silent. My car window as half to 3/4 of the way down and I did not hear a sound. They continued to fly North. I estimate the total time I observed them as 6 or 7 seconds. I am a middle aged, professional, married woman and this is my first sighting.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and found her to be quite serious minded in her approach to the incident. The party was quite convincing, and the person occupies a position of responsibility in the business community. We have checked with the administrators of local sky cameras, and have found no record of the incident yet, but if the objects were at as low an altitude as the witness suggested to us, they would not have been recorded on the camera in Woodinville, WA; its effective horizon to the west is some 20 degrees above the horizontal plane.
