Location: Bothell, WA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 min.
2 triangle shape object fly slowly over Bothell

At first glance, I thought it would appear to be airplanes in formation, but at the second and third glance, they appeared to move as one. The size of one of the ships would be relevent to the distance of your index finger and your middle finger spread out. Though the sun was very bright, and we could only see the two objects in the shade, they seemed to be very high up in the atmosphere. But what puzzles me, is that the objects nevertheless took an half an hour to leave sight, but they didn't leave any after burn trail at all like our aircrafts do. On the two objects the lights seem to be a very bright color, not determined because of the brightness of the day, but they seemed to be a bright white, all six in unison. That is all I saw, then went back to work.

((NUFORC Note: Please see similar report from co-worker in Bothell, WA, who saw the same formation. Hot air balloons fly in the valley to the east of Bothell, typically during the late afternoon, when winds are relatively calm, but we have no idea whether that might have been the cause of the sighting.
