Four circular objects over Seattle.

i realize at this time that any UFO may well be military. nonetheless, this was unlike anything i've seen or heard reported, and thought it may help. i was standing at the water's edge of Myrtle Edwards Park in Seattle, looking up at the sky towards the southeast. the sky was pink, as the sun had just gone down behind the Olympics. i then noticed 3 tiny solid black circles moving from the south to the north in a triangular pattern. they seemed to be moving very slowly. theie size was to this scale: if i extend my arm, and stare at my index finger's nail, the size of one of the craft was a quarter of the entire size of my nail. the 3 objects had no lights. they were completely circular. they then stopped and spread out into a line and just sat in the sky, it appeared to be VERY high...i could also see one or two planes in the sky, rather low, as they were on appraoch to SeaTac Airport, and these objects were tiny compared to the planes. i then noticed a 4th object...i did not see how it approached, i rather just suddenly noticed it moving upwards to meet the other 3. i did not see it rise from the horizon... the 4 objects then moved , with an odd uniformity of movement towards the south. not fast or slow, just discreetely, i'd say...they faded from my view in approx. 1 minute once they began to move.
