Three delta shaped objects flying in a "v" formation passed over Yakima, Wash. at22:10 on 07/20/01

I was in my hot tub watching airliners traveling generally on a s.east to n.west course when I saw three object traveling in a v formation on the same general heading but at a much lower altitude. These objects were difficult to see against the dark night sky, but were more visible when they passed below scattered clouds. They gave off no light,made no sound and could be mistaken for night flying birds if they were nit so fast. The two outboard objects came close together and then return to their original posions. The object did not seem to oscillate ,flap or vibrate. My best guess as to the altitude was 3000-4000 feet.

((NUFORC Note: Three reports of these objects, seen on this night, and also several nights later. We do not know what they are, but they seem to fly like transport a/c. They may be large military aircraft practicing low-level flight at night. PD))
